MADMAN by Francesco Francavilla

MADMAN
Click on it for the larger classic horror movie poster!!! ;)

I can't believe I skipped a Twart week (Emma Frost) and I was almost skipping this week too. But I couldn't pass on the chance to draw Mike's creation.
I have been fan of Madman for some time, so it was a pleasure to meet the "brain" behind this character (and co-creator with Chris Roberson of the excellent Vertigo's iZombie) and his lovely (and talented colorist) wife at a dinner in Baltimore last year (the Roberson's were there too, along with Matt Wagner and my better half :))

Hope you guys dig my classic horror approach :)

Cheers,
Francesco

I never met the brain behind Madman, but the brain behind this illustration is something very special indeed. I echo Mr. Hawthorne's sentiment wholeheartedly.
