Art Appreciation Moment of the DayFrancesco Francavilla

I love Francesco Francavilla’s work.  If you’ve been reading this site for any amount of time, it is probably obvious as the artist shows up on the Art Appreciation Moment of the Day as often as, if not more than, Adam Hughes.  Some of my favorite stuff Mr. Francavilla does deals with the pulp heroes, and his cover to Masks is mind blowing.

(With apologies to Bunim/Murray) This is the story of eleven characters…picked to live in a new universe… work together and have their adventures penned… to find out what happens… when characters stop living in their own universe… and start something completely different in… First Wave. DC’s Blackest Night and Marvel’s Siege may be the big events everyone is waiting for, but for this comic fan, the one series I’ve been waiting months for has been First Wave and the return of pulp and golden age heroes to the pages of comics.  While I enjoyed the Batman/Doc Savage Special, which served
