BLACK BEETLE, THE ANSWER Creators Swap for Dark Horse Fun

 

 

Here at Newsarama, we're loving the new take on heroes that Dark Horse is letting into the market, from pulp hero Black Beetle to superhero The Answer. Along with giving heroes that have hope, Dark Horse, and more importantly their creators, are clearly having fun.

Along those lines, it turns out that those creators, namely Francesco Francavilla and Mike Norton, are really digging each other's new work, too. So, just for fun, they decided to do pin-up promos for the new characters, both done in their own distinct style with a hint of what they like about the other's art. Dark Horse shared those pin-ups with us exclusively just as both series have kicked off.

The first issue of The Answer is out today, and Black Beetle was released last week. Below is the solicitation for the second issue of each.
