I will admit Iím negatively biased against him for his general negative attitude but most especially for when I read his criticism of Gene Colanís work when this Silver Age pioneering artist was sick, just before he died.
Hard to separate the man from the art - especially when he's a writer, too. I couldn't get enough of his FF in the 80s. Hated what he did to Superman.
I lurk at his board (I was banned after my first post for speaking my mind...) - I don't mind his being an asshole, but rather his being a lying hypocrite. It bugs me when I find I agree with him (which happens a fair amount). Still, he does share some interesting insights from time to time.
The toadying sycophants that make up his membership, though.... ick.

I had an English professor who said itís important to separate the artist from his or her art. This was in the context of Ezra Pound, an American poet who also was an anti-semite. I disagree. I refuse to separate the artist from his art. I threw out all my Bill Cosby CDs, and I canít separate Byrneís arrogant mean spiritedness from his art. Heís an ass of the highest order and wonít be getting any revenue from me.

I tried opening the link on my phone and got the same error message. There was a back and forth with Marvel about them possibly publishing this new X-Men story, but Byrne ultimately decided to just post the penciled and lettered pages online instead himself.
