Eisner Award-winning artist Francesco Francavilla is easily one of the busiest in the industry today. However, whether he's working on All-Star Batman over at DC Comics, or Dynamite's incredible miniseries The Spirit: The Corpse Makers, Mr. Francavilla is showing no signs of slowing down.
In an exciting announcement from Dark Horse Comics, it has now been revealed that he'll next be releasing a brand new story for his original creation, The Black Beetle, later this year.
Equal parts The Shadow, The Phantom, and Green Hornet, The Black Beetle is a pulp-inspired hero that is easily one of the most engrossing titles outside of the mainstream books from Marvel and DC Comics. The first series, No Way Out, wrapped back in 2013 and this new series takes the character out of his hometown of Colt City and plonks him in the Middle East where he must stop a group of Nazis from acquiring an ancient and cataclysmic weapon that could end the war in their favor.
