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.
