Savage FINcast – Episode 3: Chicago Style w/ Frank Fosco

Sorry about the delay, but the Savage FINcast returns! This episode we have a very special treat with Frank Fosco visiting the FINcast to share his insight into the world of comics.

For those who don’t know, Frank’s portfolio encompasses three decades of work illustrating comic books for Marvel, DC, Image and Dark Horse, among others.  He is best known for his work as the sole penciler on the 23-issue run of the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” comic from Image Comics.  Additional career highlights include work on Marvel’s “Worlds Greatest Comic Magazine”, DC’s “Robin” and “Steel”, and back up stories in Erik Larsen’s “Savage Dragon” such as ”The Rock House Diner”, “Ethrian” (a character he created), and the current “Vanguard” serial.

Frank joins Jim, Adam, Craig, and Gavin as they talk Image Expo news, the solicitation of Supreme 63, dissect Savage Dragon 178, and examine the latest Vanguard back-up

Unfortunately Jim couldn’t make it this week due to spending time with family for the holidays, but we found some people almost as interesting to take his place.

His expertise having lead to projects such as the Savage Dragon Companion and the Savage Dragon Wiki. Guy knows his way around a fin.

Our second guest is almost as knowledgeable about Savage Dragon, seeing as he created the guy.
