Comic Book Easter Eggs – John Byrne Celebrates an Anniversary in the Pages of X-Men

by  in Comic News Comment

All throughout July, I will be sharing with you three comic book “easter eggs” a day. An easter egg is a joke/visual gag/in-joke that a comic book creator (typically the artist) has hidden in the pages of the comic for readers to find (just like an easter egg). They range from the not-so-obscure to the really obscure. So come check ’em all out and enjoy! Also, click here for an archive of all the easter eggs featured so far!

And I Would Draw 500 Pages…

In X-Men #137, John Byrne drew his 500th page as the artist on X-Men. He celebrated the occasion in a really clever fashion…


Thanks to Andrew F. for the e-mail suggestion!

Bullying Across Two Media Franchises!

In Young Justice #3, Traya (Red Tornado’s daughter) is accosted by some very familiar looking bullies…


Yep, Todd Nauck snuck in Kearney, Jimbo and Dolph from the Simpsons…


Thanks to Bill K. for the e-mail suggestion!

The REALLY Odd Couple

In Amazing Spider-Man, check out who is having an argument (or discussion, I suppose) ahead on the street in front of Peter and Mary Jane…


I wonder what Logan and Frank talk about in their free time.

Thanks to Aaron for the e-mail suggestion!

If you can think of an easter egg/in-joke that you would like to see me feature, drop me a line at bcronin@comicbookresources.com! DON’T make suggestions in the comments section, so as to not spoil the surprise for when I end up actually featuring your suggestion.

NOTE: A word about suggestions. I’ve gotten so many (which is great – keep ’em coming!) that I am going through them in the order that I receive them. So if you wonder why I did not credit you for a suggestion you sent in, it is because someone else sent it in first. No offense intended!
