FANTASTIC FOUR #293-295: Goodbye, John Byrne


He gets writer/penciler credit for #293, by #294 he’s a “plotter,” and in #295 he’s gone for good, replaced by Roger Stern.  I’m not super-familiar with this run yet, but I know it involved modernization of the team and moved away from the old Lee/Kirby concepts that Byrne mined to such great effect.

It’s ironically appropriate, then, that this arc is about a “town” that worships the “classic” Fantastic Four and can’t imagine them being any other way.
