Byrne, Well Done!

Okay, a bit punny in the headline, but one of the "100 Avengers" covers we're most excited about at Hero Central is this one done by one of the masters, John Byrne!

The man definitely pulled out all the stops on this one. Our thanks go out to the wilds of Connecticut, and Mr. Byrne!

We're targeting a cool debut event to show off ALL the "100 Avengers" covers in March. More news as it's available!
