FX is a six-issue comic book limited series written by creator Wayne Osborne and drawn by John Byrne. It is published by IDW Publishing. The series was the result of a lifelong comics fan living his dream by hiring a professional artist to bring his creation to life.

Publication history[edit]

FX was 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,[1] and Osborne took him up on it, even though this was his first comic book.[2] 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."[3] A follow up series, FX: The Lost Land, was released as a graphic novel in December 2010 with art by Uko Smith.

Collected editions[edit]

The series has been collected as a trade paperback:
