The Thing by John Byrne. 2010.
John wrote this about the drawing above:
Almost as a Zen exercise, I continue my quest to find a really monstrous version of the Thing, without losing his familiar “Thingness”. Thinking here again of how the character looked when he first became “rocky” under the inks of “George Bell” (George Roussos)

Frankenstein Jr. & Buzz Conroy by John Byrne. 2012.
John Byrne wrote on his forum:
Doing something like FRANKENSTEIN JR or THE HERCULOIDS would be an interesting experiment. Those were out of my “age range”, so I have no emotional connection to them at all. And, as I have noted before, I have often done some of my best work when there is no emotional connection, and it’s all about the WORK.
