ZORRO


Is it too soon for more pulp and and foliage?

Find me a person who doesn't love drawing Zorro... and I'll show you that person getting socked in the belly by ME for having poor taste.
Man, Zorro is just awesome.

Speaking of awesome, be sure to pick up my pal Francesco Francavilla's work on the Zorro title for Dynamite. Short of bringing Alex Toth back from the dead and forcing him to work on the book, Francesco is the only person I can imaging being able to do "The Fox" justice. I've said it before but I'm pretty sure this is the book he was born to draw.
Here's Francesco's Twitter feed so you can keep up with all the other projects he's working on at any given moment.
Also, here's a link to the collection of Toth's Zorro work. If you're unfamiliar with it do yourself a favor and snag a copy. We'll just call it an early X-mas present for you, okay?

Click away on the above links. You'll be glad you did:)

Okay, back to work for me. Have a happy Hump Day, all. See ya tomorrow.

I'm having a blast revisiting all of these cool pulp heroes in your indomitable style. Thanks for the great link to Toth's work and for taking the time to educate us poor slobs :). Keep the foliage coming!

It is never too early or too late for YOUR Zorro. Well done as always!

Love your take on the Fox Chris. I picked up the hardcover in Baltimore...Matt Wagner and Francesco deliver the goods...great stuff!

Zorro is one of the few books I'm still buying on a monthly basis.

I'm a big fan of Francesco's work, but judging from the above, you'd do a great job as well.

Speaking of Zorro, I'm looking forward to finding the Season 1 and 2 of Disney's Zorro under my tree this
