The Black Beetle

I realize that I’m a “Johnny Come Lately” to things, but as prices of single issue comics are sky high (as much as $3.99 or more) I usually wait and buy a trade collecting many issues into one volume. Having said that, I can’t wait to tell you about how cool this one is…


This is The Black Beetle, a collection of Francesco Francavilla’s single issues of the “No Way Out” storyline. Done in a wonderful pulp style (one of my favorite settings 1900s-40s), The Black Beetle is a rad addition to such pulp heroes as The Shadow, the Phantom, and The Spider!

I would love a Black Beetle action figure! I would display him next to my Lobster Johnson figure (created by Mike Mignola).
So if anyone ever reads this, then get on that for me!
