This is a dream come true for me. I asked John Byrne to draw a crowd scene of his choice of characters from the Avengers starting with issue 1 and going through his run on the title. The only specific request I had was that the Space Phantom be near the front. JB decided to start with the early characters in the front of the illo and progressively add characters from later issues going backwards. The end result surpassed anything I could have imagined. This one has to be seen in person to truly appreciate it; the original is 20" x 30".

I think it's safe to call this the definitive Byrne Avengers drawing.

How are you even able to leave your house-?!? If I owned this, I'd call in sick and just stare at this all day long. It's not so much a commission as it is a gloriously cool "time machine" and I think only Byrne could've pulled it off so well. This just can't be beat! Congratulations!

This should be published as a poster! I love all the different iterations of Iron Man (it's always great to see Ditko's redesign of ol' Shell Head) and all the little character details like the Mole Man and his minions tunneling into view at the bottom right. Absolutely stunning!
