Comic Book Art Blogs Worth Viewing: Francesco Francavilla
  |  @   |  

There are a lot of great comic book art blogs out there, beyond the deviantart pages of the world, and if you’re a comic book fan, these are webpages that you should be checking out on a daily basis. This week, I’m going to highlight a few that I think are worthy of your attention or are just pages for some of my favorite artists.

Today we take a look at the blog for artist Francesco Francavilla, who most recently worked on Detective Comics with Scott Snyder and Jock, and will soon be working on Snyder’s Swamp Thing, splitting time with Yannick Paquette. Francavilla actually has several webpages to go to. There is his main site, viewed here, which is basically a hub to all of his sites. Then there is his Pulp Sunday site, which is basically what it sounds like. Each Sunday, he posts an image, sometimes for an actual comic, but generally for a fake book that we’ll never see. Francavilla takes a pulp hero or story and creates a mock cover for them in his unique style. It is a treat for fans of characters like Flash Gordon, The Shadow, and others.

Finally, there is his Sketch Blog, where Francavilla posts random images, sometime from projects he is working on, or images from projects he plans to do in the future. One of the big features that fans of Doctor Who will enjoy is Francavilla’s series of images based on each week’s new episode. Each image is spoiler-free, but if you have seen the episode, you will catch everything that is going on in the image. Be sure to check his site after each week’s episode to see what he has done.

Francavilla is an artist on the rise and he has a lot of work coming out in the future. Be sure to check his blogs out to get great previews of what he has coming out.
