THE SHADOW in
"THE CAVERNS OF DEATH
Lobby Card art by Francesco Francavilla

Time for another Old Time Radio episode of the Shadow (with legendary Orson Welles providing the voice of Cranston/Shadow).

While visiting a cave just opened to the public, a few students fall down a pit. A rescue team is sent to find any survivors (or at least to recuperate the students’ bodies) but they find nothing. It seems a case for the Shadow! As matter of fact Lamont and Margot go down the cave to investigate and they discover a series of sinister activities in the lower levels of the caverns.

I have to admit I was fascinated by the description of the villain in this episode: a man who wears a gas mask all the time so no one has ever seen his face. Pretty cool, uh? That was definitely calling to be the main subject of my lobby card.

Enjoy the episode clicking on the link below.

COMIC-CON 2014 FF Schedule & More!

Hey guys,
here’s my schedule for next week’s SDCC attendance.
I was honored to be invited as a guest this year (thank you, CCI :)) so I am getting a spotlight panel on Friday and will have a table in AA at ii14 (see map above, close to entrance/lobby G). I will be on the convention floor definitely on Friday and Saturday, mostly doing signings and a panel with Archie Comics (see above map, close to entrance/lobby C), and hopefully spending some time at the table for signings or even sketching.
I will be at the Eisner ceremony/dinner as well: my BLACK BEETLE “NO WAY OUT” is up for an Eisner Award in the Best Limited Series category (wish me luck - tough competition this year ;))

Last but not least, on Saturday afternoon (can’t say what time - follow tweet feed for details) I will have a new MONDO poster drop at Mondo’s booth - it’s a good one!

Important: PLEASE make sure you follow my twitter feed @f_francavilla as I will probably use that social media to let everyone know when I am gonna be at the table in Artist Alley for signing/sketching.
Hope to see you guys in SD! :)

FF ON THE COMICSHOPS SHELVES - FIRST HALF OF 2014 EDITION

I posted earlier the 4 covers I have in shops today and realized I forgot to list another book (with my cover and a cover gallery inside) that is out today as well: GRINDHOUSE Vol.1 TPB. (see above)

Since it’s New COmicbook Day, here a little graphic of all my work/cover/interiors that have come out in shops in the first half (Jan-Jun) of this 2014. Despite my plans to take it easy this year, looks like I’ve been quite a busy guy…

Cheers,
FF
