    Default If you had the Money...

    Would you commision an AF pic from John Byrne? Personally, I would be straight on it. He created the team and to my mind is the father of AF. To have an John Byrne Alpha image hanging on my wall would be a dream come true.

    Heck yah! It's his art I like, not who he is as a person. I want to take his art home, not him.

    Yes, and I have. A few sketches dating from the early 1980's which I got from New York comic cons. I hope to be able to find them and send them to Ben to put on this website. (I haven't been able to find anything since we moved.)

    If I had the money, I'd definitely buy a Byrne original. My wife would probably have a warm spot set aside on the couch for me, but I'd definitely spend the coin (and lots of it).

    I would. I make a fairly decent living and don't have kids so it has been something I've contemplated. I just can't in my mind justifying the amount of money needed for a piece of original art.

    I'm not a 100% sure, but I do know that the more characters in a pic the bigger the price. I doubt you'd get much change out of a $1000 dollars for a basic one character pic, but I could be wrong.

    On that note, what would you get John Byrne to do for your commision?

    Sidenote : Anyone get uneasy if they refer to John Byrne as JB or Byrne, just curious?

    Nope, his last AF related commisions have not been that great. From the oddly drawn Talisman to the recent Guardian who's face looks messed, etc.

    There's a commision from about a year back give or take that has the AF v OF image from #12, it has slightly more going for it than this, but the new commision is very good.

    I remember that commision as the Box was excellent, but the Talisman and Guardain commisions left a sour note with me.

    I'd have to go for an action scene with multiple characters. The Tanaraq and Guardian vs OF are both great. Maybe the originals coming together to face off against Tundra in the distance complete with a little waterspout Marrina in the corner.

    I too have not liked his facial expressions in particular on Talisman and Guardian mentioned above.

    A snowbird transformation or Shaman vision quest might be a cool commission, too.
