The Black Beetle by thecheckeredman The Black Beetle by thecheckeredman
I discovered Francesco Francavilla's work while Googling stuff about "The Shadow" and found his Pulp Sunday blog which I began to follow. I don't read a ton of print comics anymore--they're too expensive--though I have picked up and began to follow a few series. THE BLACK BEETLE is one of these. This is my kind of comic book! It's not daunting with 30+ years of continuity making it easy to jump into, the artwork is beautiful and the storytelling is solid, and the character(s) and adventure feel fresh and new while also feeling "classic" and comfortable (like your favorite sneakers). This isn't mind-bending, challenging, insightful, thought-provoking avant garde indie/hipster comics ...its just bare-knuckle, pulpy, fun. And IMHO, there's no better comics than that.

I've been so inspired and enamored by FFs work and BB in particular I whipped up this piece of fan-art last night...
