John Byrne Says He Would Be Back at Marvel if C.B. Cebulski Shook His Hand

At the Marvel Fanfare panel at New York Comic Con earlier this weekend, Marvel Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski addressed what he's claimed is his top wishlist item: getting John Byrne back at Marvel. Talk of Byrne's return has reached a fever pitch since the pair had breakfast together and Byrne started posting an X-Men fanfic comic on his Byrne Robotics forum. There were even rumors, squashed by Bleeding Cool Rumourmonger-in-Chief Rich Johnston, that Chelsea Cain's Vision comic was canceled to make room for one by Byrne.

At Marvel Fanfare this weekend, Cebulski said that while Marvel hasn't formally discussed a project with Byrne, the door is open for his return and, Cebulski seemed to imply, the ball was in Byrne's court.

However, Byrne sees things slightly differently, responding to a question about bringing his X-Men comic to Marvel and brought to us by the John Byrne Says twitter account:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
