Hello Friends,

I've been working on the interiors for my first Cap America & Bucky issue (#625) so I decided to put together a little teaser poster (above) with the pre-order code. If needed, you guys can print this, bring it to your local comic shop and help spreading the word & make sure as many people as possible pre-order this.
It's a fun story from those talented Brubaker and Asmus fellas (and me ;)) and can't wait for you all to read it (in December :))

Black Panther MWF #524 - Spider Island!

Black Panther in Spider Island #524 Preview
~~ Click on the above image for the large preview ~~

Hello guys,

I hope you pick up my latest Black Panther book: it's a fun roller-coaster special issue, tied into the SPider Island event (even if you can read it by itself without having read all the other books).
You can have a taste of the interior pages by clicking the large preview above.

And below you can see the whole process from layout/sketch to final lettered page (click on the image for bigger size).

Hope you enjoy the process and the read.:)



First it was American Panther, now it’s…Six-Armed Panther? The arachnid infection griping Manhattan hits T’Challa, but that doesn’t mean he’ll stop trying to protect Hell’s Kitchen!

And when Overdrive breaks into the quarantine zone, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Panther swings into a deadly race across the streets of New York City.

What has the Spidey villain stolen that’s worth smashing through a hero-protected border, and why is the lethal Lady Bullseye trying to keep him from getting back out?

Not-at-NYCC Sketches

Click on the image for the larger BIG POSTER!!! ;)

As you might know by now, I had to cancel my attendance to NYCC this week due to workload. It's a bit of a bummer cause I've never been at that show or in NYC at all, so I was looking forward to it, but these pages need to be drawn so...

So, if you were planning to go to the show and you were hoping to get a sketch from me, I wanted to give you a chance to do so even if I am not gonna be on the convention floor physically: just contact me via email (no need to reply on the blog or on twitter - only emails count) at info (at) francescofrancavilla (dot) com with your sketch request. (all skethces will be one character with some bg, fully inked - see above con sketch of the Fly)

I will be replying to the first 10 people who will send me an email and I'll give all the details for paypal payment - once the payment is through, you will be officially on the sketch list. I am also planning to take 2 or 3 additional requests randomly from request #11 and up, so even if yours is request #24 you still have a chance.
Cool? :)
This is for domestic shipping only - US resident only.
Will do something similiar later on for International request.

Good luck, everyone :)

EDIT: 3.35 pm - Closing the request/email window.

Thank you so much everyone for the great warm response :) We have the top ten (who have been contacted already) and we have plenty of runner-ups to pick 2-3 randomly from. All runner-ups will receive an email later today, so if you haven't been contacted so far, it means your email/request is #11 and up. Still a good chance to be picked so fingers crossed :)

Dr WHO - The Wedding of River Song

Dr WHO - The Wedding of River Song
(click on the above image for the larger poster view)

Hi guys,

here's my tribute poster to this season finale of Doctor Who, The Wedding of River Song.
I realy enjoyed how all came together in this episode, and didn't expect the final twist. I am not adding anything to not spoil the vision of the show (for those who haven't seen it yet), but I hope you guys have been enjoying these posters.
Next Who poster will be this Xmas, when the Doctor will be back on the BBC America programming with new episodes :)
