Francesco Francavilla’s Black Beetle: Night Shift sold out at the distributor level, and that means people are interested in the noir hero. That’s why Dark Horse Comics sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek for The Black Beetle: No Way Out #1, that you can check out, after the jump.
In this issue: The Apocalypse is coming! Or at least that is what someone wishes was actually happening after reading this week’s trade paperback. Also, Zorro headed to the small screen, Black Beetle takes a crack at evil, Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriquez give us hope, and Harbinger finds Charlene Dupre.
Show Notes after the Jump!
One of the favorite artists at Major Spoilers Francesco Francavilla. I originally got hooked on his Pulp Sunday blog where he would post all sorts of pulpy related art, including his original creation Black Beetle. Today, Mr. Francavilla has announced that Black Beetle is getting a mini-series that arrives in January 2013 from Dark Horse Comics.
This has been a long time coming, and I’m super excited to hear that Dark Horse Comics is publishing Francesco Francavilla’s Black Beetle series that has played out on Francavilla’s website for the last couple of years. It all plays out in Dark Horse Presents #11, and the complete press release (plus pretty art) after the jump.
Today, we’re diving into Black Beetle (not THAT Black Beetle) territory, with this piece by RamÃ³n PÃ©rez.
