I've got that Mid-Ohio Con cover on a post card.

Many thanks to Nathan for starting threads like this and to everyone for
sharing photos of cool items that I wouldn’t have otherwise known
existed!

I’m not sure if this is what Nathan had in mind, but I’m always pleased
to share what I feel is my most obscure JB item:
Box O’ Xeroxes

The links in that thread to the Pencil Scans no longer work, but can be
found at their new home:
PencilScans

Since anyone can print out any of the 939 pages I got and basically
have the same thing, they may not be too “obscure”; however, I’m still
ecstatic to own them and was glad to have the opportunity to share
them here (with Dan Marcoux’s help!).

Brian: What’s that from?!?


The FF post? I don’t know if Marvel sold those things (or just a promotional item), but I remember seeing them in comic shops when I was a kid. They are artwork printed on cloth. The only time I’ve seen that FF art is on that cloth “poster”... or whatever you’d call it!

Nathan, you should auction that amazing JB item collection and use the money to fund a documentary on the man. I'll do the sound and music for free! ;-)

Hey, I got that Workshop book!

Not sure how "obscure" this one is but I don't see it around much;

To this day, I still can't fully look at that exploding John Byrne drawing. He has succeeded in making me squeamish!

Same here.

When I was about 12 I was huge John Byrne fan and at a small convention came across The Art of John Byrne. I was pretty excited, but the cover cost was a stretch for my budget, so I flipped through it to see if I wanted it.

That was the first image I saw and it really freaked me out so much I didn't even flip through the rest of the book.

I didn't get a copy until about 8 years later when a professor at my art college sold me a copy.

I know I was a weird kid, but that really made an impression on me.

Nathan, that Spider-Man Comic Book Club of Ithaca
is a cropped version of a parody mock "Spidey's
Super Stories" cover JB did which also had the
Punisher blowing away the Easy Reader (Morgan
Freeman's character).

When I was a little kid, I saved up my allowance so I’d have money to blow when I visited my grandparents in California. I found a comic shop in the phone book, convinced my grandmother to drive me there, and found The Art of John Byrne sitting on the shelves! Oh glorious day!!! — then my grandmother flipped through the book, saw the nudity, and said I couldn’t buy it. That was total bullshit. 😭
