EISNER, The Black Beetle, & Creature From The Black Lagoon!
I've got lots of great news, all coming out from last week's SDCC. Please read the full post and you'll see. :)
As you can guess from the photo above, I won an EISNER for the BEST COVER ARTIST category! Thank you so much to everyone who made this possible, including you all guys always being so kind and supportive of my work :)
It was great to see lots of my friends being rewarded too: guys like Darwyn Cooke, Ramon Perez, Paolo Rivera, Mike Norton, and list goes on and on. Great comics and great creators being rewarded is always wonderful to see :)
But the Eisner on Friday night was just the cherry on top of a great couple of days at SDCC.
More BLACK BEETLE! (click on the image for bigger view)
Yes, during the Dark Horse panel on Thursday, I announced the upcoming (and long awaited) NO WAY OUT, a new Black Beetle mini starting at the very beginning of 2013 and that will tell the story that some of you have started reading in the (now sold out) Black Beetle #0 ashcan.
Before the mini, you will also have a chance to get the whole NIGHT SHIFT story that run in Dark Horse Presents #11-12-13 in a one shot that will include some extras and will have a brand new cover. And this is just the beginning of the Black Beetle saga: expect much more in 2013 :)
MONDO's CREATURE FORM THE BLACK LAGOON! (click on the image for bigger view)
Last but not least, on Friday morning MONDO released my first poster I did with them: CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, part of their Universal Monster line.
The poster, limited and numbered to 325 copies, sold out within an hour. I am expecting a certain number of Artist Proofs so stay tuned on my blogs or on my twitter feed (@f_francavilla) for the chance to get a copy if you missed out in SD.
And yes, more collaborations with MONDO are in the plans :)
Hope you all are as excited as I am for the Eisner, The Creature, and - most of all - for more Black Beetle!
