FX is a six-issue comic book limited series written and created by Wayne Osborne and drawn by John Byrne. It was published by IDW Publishing in 2008. Osborne, a lifelong comics fan, realized his dream by hiring Byrne, a prominent professional comics artist, to help create his own comic book title.
FX is a fan-commissioned series. John Byrne made it known on his message board that he was open to full-comic commissions, at a cost of $20,000 an issue. Osborne hired Byrne; this was Osborne's first comic book. The production was done using the Marvel Method where the story is plotted, the art is drawn and then the script finalised because, as Byrne says, "that eliminated about 90% of the mistakes newbie writers make."
A follow up series, FX: The Lost Land, was released as a graphic novel in December 2010 with art by Uko Smith.
