We all know the fued between writer/artist extraordinaire, John Byrne, and Marvel, particularly Joe Quesada. I think it's silly nonsense, and two grown men like JB and JQ shouldn't be acting like spoiled kids on the playground. They're both better than that.
Byrne at Marvel again would sell. His style is well suited for Marvel characters. I think his writing days are over, and his ego needs to accept that, but his art could have an impact again, I think. It's a classic style rooted in old school, but still modern looking. Guys like Steve Epting and Mike Deodato make a pretty good living drawing in a similar old school fashion, but mixed with modern color enhancements.
I'd only want Byrne to draw one series at a time, though, so he'd take his time and add backgrounds, and try to adapt some newer techniques. His speed would be a blessing. He'd be great on anything Avengers, Iron-Man, Captain America (like a 6 issue WWII mini), Fantastic Four, Hulk, or Wolverine. Wolverine is something I'd love to see him and Claremont get a shot at. Give me some of that over Daniel Way and Steve Dillon.
Would anybody else love to see the prodigal son return home?
