For those not in a region that allows it, the interview
is up on Facebook on the `Byrne Victims` page.

Fantastic interview. Still learning a lot years later. It's nice to know our host's own immigration experiences had a bearing on MOS.

MOS was reprinted in the UK in SUPERMAN, a fortnightly title that eventually became monthly. This was around 1988 (I had read the US issues in '86).

The letters pages for the UK reprints were very, very positive about it. Also, we got A4-sized reprints on glossy paper. Here's one example:

I bought that issue. And yes that sellotape was murder to deal with.

I enjoyed the original US issues, but when London Editions Magazines (who held the DC licence at one point) published the MOS reprints, I thought I'd gone to Heaven: MOS, and later Mr Byrne tales, in A4 and on glossy paper?!!! Yay!

Quick Q for JB: When you had Clark playing football did you ever toy
with the idea of him seriously injuring - or even killing - another player
as a callback to Phillip Wylie’s GLADIATOR?

I'm no fan of glossy paper, but what is "A4"?

A4 is the U.K. equivalent of your letter sized paper. Although it is slightly longer and slightly thinner in portrait orientation.
8.26 x 11.69 (A4) vs 8.5 x 11 (US letter)

Finally managed to see this via the link Bill mentions. Loved it. A lot you had mentioned here before but it was still great hearing you speak those stories.
