Francesco Mattina Checklist for DC Comic

Francesco Mattina has a certain flair about his art.  Most of it is dark shadowy work that has you straining to see more details.  But he frequently adds these spectacular wisps of orange, lime green or red.  The Batman Who Laughs cover is a good example.  The cover is composed of very dark tones of black and blue and then this pink light emanating from below.  His art is appealing to several different kinds of collectors.  He pulls the casual observer in with bright color pops that draw attention to certain areas of the cover.  A person studying the cover stares at the shadowy areas trying to let their imaginations fill in the blanks.  That is the greatness of Mattina, it looks fantastic either way you look at it.

Mattina is currently working on variant covers for three DC titles: Batman, Deathstroke, and Suicide Squad.
