Many longtime Byrne Robotics members may recall the "Fantastic Four Art Challenge" which originated on the old Network 54 message board back in 2004. This was the project where I suggested that those of us with artistic abilities tackle finishing the try-out story JB created around 1973 as an aspiring artist looking to break into the business. The entire penciled pages  had been reproduced in "Comics Interview" #25 (1985), so, with JB's blessing (thanks again for granting that, JB), several of us volunteered to complete the tale JB began decades before.

Here is a LINK to the thread where I posted the finished version in 2005, after we had migrated over to here, the Byrne Robotics site.

It was a fun artistic exercise that was dubbed "The Imaginary Giant-Size Fantastic Four #1".

Since the project was done with only the intent of it being a fan fiction piece shared on this site, and because of the site's restrictions on files and image sizes, the resolution of the uploaded pages were very low. Unfortunately, this also meant the visual quality of the pages was low. And, since so many years have passed, with several people having took part in finishing the comic, it is pretty much impossible that high resolution graphics of everyone's contribution to the fan fic could be obtained from everyone at this point.

Because of this, I've had an urge for some time to return to the original pencils by JB and go over the thing again, myself, to have a finished version in high resolution.

I created a new cover, and while I stuck fairly close to the script by fellow board member Mike O'Brien, I did make some changes here and there. I inked every page of the 1973 pencils, including re-inking the three pages I had originally inked for the 2004 version. I re-lettered, and re-colored it, as well. Here I am sharing the results. Even with the site's file size limits, these pages I present here are in higher resolution quality since then what was posted to the forum back in 2005.

I have higher res scans posted on my blog at this LINK.

Thanks again to JB for allowing us to partake in this fun project. It was a blast then and now, and I hope everyone will enjoy this 2021 revised version.
