John Byrne’s X-Men: Elsewhen #1 In Full and Free! 39-Page Debut Issue! Marvel Comics Universe Spoilers!

Before we begin, this was series John Byrne worked on at his leisure that, in the end, Marvel and he could not come to an agreement to publish. As such, he decided to post a page a day from last June 2019 of the now dubbed fanfic series. Below are some quotes from his initiating post on his Byrne Robotics website.

      Let loose the dogs of war! (And no speculation on why I decided not to take this to Marvel.)

      With about nine issues in the drawer—call it 190+ pages, with more to come—this little exercise should carry us into 2020. Kind of appropriate.

      BTW, I should mention that the lettering on these pages is in no way to be considered “professional”. Strictly FPO.

      Also, having seen some of these pages before, I’m sure some of you will find the one-a-day release “schedule” frustrating, but try to enjoy this peek behind the process, with lettering and pages in different order to massage your interest.

      No covers.

Now onto the interior pages.
