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

Good to see you guys back! I was getting worried.
Hey guys–thanks for having me on–it was a lot of fun. Look forward to when we can do it again.
Thanks for joining us Frank! We had a blast talking to you and I know all of us would like to have you on again at some point. Please keep us in the loop on your upcoming projects!
I love comics, and it’s an exciting time with all the movies / adaptions now happening. I wonder what Frank’s thoughts are about ome of the movies being release (and re-written), like the TMNT show.
Hey Walt, thanks for stopping by! I’m sure we will have Frank on again at some point and we can ask him. He’s also a frequent poster at Erik Larsen’s forum on the Image Comics messageboard (https://forums.imagecomics.com/viewforum.php?f=17). If you ask him over there, I’m sure he will answer. Frank also just launched his very own site at https://www.frankfoscoart.com/
I wondered what happened to your brother Daviid who was a good friend and on my gymnastic team at Bloom over 30 years ago. I will never forget his iron cross, he was strong and amazing. I heard of your sucess and artistic ability I would love to see you do some work for the American youth which could wake them up to all this terrible gang activity. I know the American Bible League which is just a mile from your old family home in the village has the resources just not your drawing talent Frank. I felt led of the Lord to tell you this, what greater legacy than to change our nations childrens hearts from evil to good. We need more super hero Godly men.
I do remember you. I knew your sister Carol also, we were in the same grade together. You may be surprised but I have done work for the christian market. Most recently for Kingstone Media. Phyllis, I see it’s been over a couple of months ago when you posted this comment and this is the first I am seeing of it. If you happen to venture back here you can contact me through my web site: frankfoscoart.com and I’ll get back to you.
Btw–Dave has pastored a church and has a great family who love and are serving the lord. He went from the iron cross to the cross.
God bless you.
