Batman & Robin by Francis Portela

Check out this incredible black and white rendering of the Dark Knight and his trusty sidekick Robin by Francis Portela.

A current teacher at the Joso School for Comic-Book Artists, and also a former student, Francis started working in American comic-books both as a penciler (two issues of GI Joe: Frontline for Image / Devil’s Due) and an inker, in books like Batman: Gotham Knights (with Al Barrionuevo) for DC Comics, and The Resistance (with Juan Santacruz) for Wildstorm.

Later, he started penciling for Marvel, company he’s still working with these days, in titles like Araña: The heart of the Spider; Captain Universe: X-23; Heroes for Hire; a lengthy stint as artist in Black Panther, and also three issues of Wolverine: First Class.

The miniseries Supervillain Team-Up: MODOK’s 11 was his first collaboration with writer Fred Van Lente, and they worked together again in short stories like the Vulture one they did for Web of Spider-Man #5, and the Halo: Blood Line miniseries.

Currently, Francis is drawing the New-52 Legion of Superheroes book for DC Comics.

Batman ’89 Print By Casey Callender

Wow, I was blown away by this incredible depiction of The Dark Knight from Tim Burton’s groundbreaking film and had to share it with my readers!

Casey Callender will sell this ’89 Batman print at WonderCon in Anaheim, CA next month.

The 18 x 24 print will be a WonderCon edition only and will come in an edition of 300 priced at $35 per print. The 24 x 36 prints, which do vary ever so slightly in design, will drop online and will come in an edition of 250 priced at $57 per print. Both editions come with or without credit blocks, your choice.

Here is what Casey had to say about the print:

“One of the other powerful visual elements of the ’89 Batman that stuck out for me were when Keaton would throw down smoke deterrents and disappear into the shadows….always stuck with me, so that was the basis for the print..that and well, …bats”

MONDO Announces Eyes Without A Face Gallery Show Featuring The Art of Jason Edmiston Opening On March 13, 2015


MONDO presents “Eyes Without A Face,” the next gallery show, featuring artist Jason Edmiston and an eye-opening collection of original art based on 1:1 representations of some of pop culture’s most iconic peepers. The show will kick off with an opening night reception, open to the public, on March 13, 2015 from 7-10 PM and will run during regular hours until April 4, 2015. MONDO Gallery is located at 4115 Guadalupe Street in Austin, TX.

“Eyes Without A Face” will feature approximately 150 portraits of eyes culled together from film, music, comics, video games, toys and more. Each piece will be presented at a 1:1 ratio – from tiny plastic toy people, humanoid actors, to giant beasts and more. The concept allowed Edmiston to curate a wide spectrum of characters for the gallery in a way that made thematic sense. Part of the fun will be trying to figure out all 150 characters at the show.

Discussing the genesis of the show’s concept Edmiston said, “I had the idea for the show when I was working on my last solo exhibition for Mondo Gallery. I was driving around town with my wife bouncing concepts off of her. I checked my rear view and had the idea. The shape of the mirror made me think of just using a tight cropping of eyes for the basis of a show. I also kind of wanted to see what it would feel like to be in a gallery surrounded by eyes staring at you. It should be quite an experience to stand in the center of the gallery and slowly rotate 360 degrees, creating a feeling of being watched by your heroes.”

Edmiston has become well known and highly sought after for his eye-popping and colorful acrylic paintings of pop culture figures. His most jaw-dropping pieces, like The Hand of Ming, have always been incredibly expressive and successful in drawing out the emotion of the character. “Eyes Without A Face” is allowing Edmiston to hone in the eyes, the most expressive part of any body – real or imagined.

Joshua Budich Announces Public-Private Commission/Presell For Stan “The Man” Lee Print.

Joshua Budich is offering a Public-Private Commission/Presell for his Stan “The Man” Lee print.

Here is what the artist had to say about the poster:

“In my home, Stan “The Man” Lee has reached mythical status. Through his tireless and exuberant promotion, I can share my childhood love of comics with my son, and most importantly, not feel the least bit ashamed of doing so. My boy screams with delight with each of the famous Stan-Cameos, and relishes playing him as “Stan-Hulk”. This piece is my very humble homage to a most deserving, and utterly legendary man.”

The print drop will be a “Public Private Commission”, opening this Friday, March 13, 2015 and closing Sunday, March 15, 2015. Minimum print-run of 50, and a maximum of 100.

True Believers!, can gratuitously grab a coveted copy of your very own at, joshuabudich.bigcartel.com.
