Legendary creator John Byrne signing exclusively at the IDW booth at NYCC

John Byrne is one of those creators who needs no introduction.

But I’ll do one anyway.

He’s put his stamp on books like X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Captain America, and successfully brought Superman out of Crisis with his landmark The Man of Steel miniseries. For what it’s worth, that is still what I consider to be the definitive Superman origin.

At this year’s New York Comic-Con, Byrne will make a rare appearance as he signs exclusively at the IDW booth to celebrate the release of the new book John Byrne’s Marvel Classics Artifact Edition. Like all of IDW’s Artifact Edition releases, this book looks absolutely gorgeous, with a focus on Byrne’s best work at Marvel.

Check out the details below, including a link to preorder a copy of Byrne’s Artifact Edition.

John Byrne Exclusively Signs
at New York Comic-Con
as Guest of IDW Publishing at Booth #1844

New John Byrne’s Marvel Classics Artifact Edition Now Available
for Online Preorder and Booth Pick-Up

SAN DIEGO, CA (September 12, 2019) – IDW Publishing proudly welcomes John Byrne, the legendary comic book writer/artist, for a rare convention appearance at this year’s New York Comic-Con alongside the Convention Exclusive variant cover debut of John Byrne’s Marvel Classics Artifact Edition.

Byrne will be signing at 
Booth #1844 twice a day on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, October 3-5, with exact times to be announced closer to the show. Stay tuned to IDW social media for details!

Any IDW-published comic book, graphic novel, or art book by John Byrne can be signed free of charge. However, with the purchase of the John Byrne’s Marvel Classics Artifact Edition, the buyer will be granted the opportunity for up to five (5) non-IDW items to be signed – a rare chance for fans to get Byrne’s autograph on his most celebrated comics work.

John Byrne’s Marvel Classics Artifact Edition is a 168-page masterpiece measuring 12” x 17”, with its wraparound convention exclusive cover being the first-ever AE-style book to feature that cover style. Featuring Byrne’s work from The Avengers, Captain America, Marvel Team-Up, and more, this Artifact Edition includes six (6) pages reproduced from the artist’s pencils on the never-completed Captain America #257.

IDW’s Artist and Artifact Editions, edited by 
Scott Dunbier, feature scans of original art printed at the same size they were drawn, capturing all the nuances that make original art special and unique (blue pencil notations, tape, white-out, margin notes, and more), mimicking the look and feel of the actual hand drawn pages.

When reached for comment Byrne said, “Wait, are you SURE I agreed to this? Curse you, Dunbier!”

Please follow the below link to preorder this very special NYCC exclusive book for pick-up at IDW booth #1844. The deadline to place preorders to ensure stocking and fulfillment at NYCC is September 20th.
