Dr. No's Guest Highlight: Francesco Francavilla


Francesco, a master illustrator and graphic designer, is best known as the artist of Afterlife With Archie, the acclaimed horror/zombie series set in the Archie Universe. Of course, you're also seen his art on hundreds of covers, as well as in the pages of Batman: The Black Mirror, Hawkeye, and other comics. He is also both artist and writer of The Black Beetle, the pulp-inspired hero series that will be returning from Dark Horse in the not-too-distant future.

FCBD 2015 Guest(s) Highlight: 501st Legion and Steampunk Boba Fett

Like Star Wars? You're in luck. This Saturday, May 2 is Free Comic Book Day 2015, and Dr. No's is proud to welcome members of Georgia's 501st Legion and our local Steampunk Boba Fett! They'll be here throughout the day on Saturday, so make sure you come by and say high, pick up a couple FCBD books, and meet the great comic creators that will be on hand from 12pm (noon) to 2pm!
The Star Wars Costume community is an enthusiastic group of volunteers who have some of the best costumes in fandom. The fine folk of the 501st Legion are coming to Dr. No's in full Star Wars costumes to pose for pictures with the Free Comic Book Day attendees. If you are a fan of Star Wars or just a fan of great costumes, this group is a must see!

You better hope there isn't a bounty on your head because Steampunk Boba Fett is in the house. John Strangeway has turned what could have been a one time costume appearance into a household name within the cosplay community. If anyone asks if you saw "Steampunk Boba Fett" they are almost certainly talking about John.
