This is one of the great weeks of recent comic history. A full issue of Detective by one of the greatest visual story tellers all time. And, Black Panther by the very same! That makes for a spectacular week. Can't wait.

Francesco Francavilla said...

Thank you so much, Jeff, you always have very kind words for my work and I appreciate it :) You are gonna love Detective #875 :)

Black Panther #516 is drawn by talented guest artist Jefte Palo (as I mentioned earlier last month on my sketchblog). Marvel solicited the wrong credits, but that issue was Jefte's all along. I will be back on # 517 (that it has already gone to print and will come ut in 2 weeks).
Hope you pick #516 up anyway since Jefte's art is sweet and there will be a big revelation in it :)

Thank you, Mister Francavilla, I will pick up 516 and enjoy in anticipation of 517. A full issue of Detective that you yourself believe to be one of your best works is enough to last for a long time.

Great Bat Woman sketch you did at Planet Comiccon. And Hunter Rose! Don't know how you feel about being on a bucket list, but you are.

That is one of the most amazing spreads I've ever seen. The way you capture each emotion in not only the lines, but the color really speaks to everyone who lays eyes on it.

Keep up the awesome work!
