I’ll never grow tired of Francesco Francavilla’s art even if A) He begins sending me original art in the mail on a daily basis, or B) he starts including Major Spoilers references in his work.  His latest features big Ben Grimm as a pulp hero.  Gotta love that crime scene shot of Mr. Fantastic’s body!

Here I was thinking I could take a week off, and then the awesomely talented Mike Hawthorne reminded me (with his fabolous inking on Ramon Perez’s Thing headsketch) that I said I was going to put some inks on the sketch, so I guess I had some catch-up to do as everyone else ;)

Hope Ramon and y’all dig it :)

Now I wish I could work on this story: I have already a bit of setup: Ben and Reed part ways (not in a good way). After a few years Ben is a PI and (femme fatale) Sue steps in his office. She wants Ben investigating on the murder of Mr Fantastic.
How does that sounds for a NOIR take on the FF? :) Any Marvel editor/writer out there who wants to do this with me? Uh? :)
