JOHNNY RECON by Francesco Francavilla

Johnny Recon in PLANET OF DOOM
(click on the above image for larger view)

I think PLANET OF DOOM with Johnny Recon is a movie everyone should go to watch :)
And I think having the Twart done and off my plate will let me get now to those deadlines and commissions that are waiting for me ;)

Thanks for the cool character you and Scott created, Mitch: drawing this reminded me of how much fun it was to work on that issue of FEAR AGENT a couple of years ago :)

Hope you guys digs it.

Cheers,
Francesco

I think I saw this movie!
You capture the essence of those old sci-fi movies that I could've easily fooled myself that I saw this.
Beautiful colors.

You seen this movie? You are not that old, Ron ;)
Thank you, glad you enjoyed it :)

Cheers,
Francesco
