The Dark Phoenix by Joana Afonso

Hi good people.
Here's this week's post, the Dark Phoenix, by Joana Afonso, a new addition to the FoF roster.

No need to explain the connection between the two characters, right?
Here's Joana's homage to one of my personal favorite times in comics, Claremont and Byrne's run on X-Men.

Stay tuned for more great fanart, next week!

Wolverine by André Caetano

FoF is back this week with the veteran X-Men and fan-favorite Wolverine, portrayed by André Caetano. If you know Wolverine's story, you know how the Hulk played a major role on the Ol' Canucklehead's very first appearance.

This week is equally special because we started publishing on Facebook, on FoF's very own Facebook page.

Check it out, join us and comment there as well!
See you next week.

LoEG by Ricardo Venâncio

Time for a special entry on FoF.
Linking to the themes of Jules Verne and the Invisible Man of the last post, I chose to tackle one of my favorite comics in recent years.

As promised last week, here's a supersized piece in tribute to Alan Moore's dysfunctional classic character super team of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, end of 19th Century version.

Wilhelm Storitz by João Lemos

Well, here we are, back online again after a very long delay, with a very good reason.

The last few months have been of hard work on my first book for the French Market, La Centurie Des Convertis book II, to be published by Fauvard Editions. Check out this post on my blog for more about the book.
I'm glad to report that work is finished and that I'm slowly returning to the "real world", including FoF.

On that note, we're back with a newcomer to the challenge, João Lemos, who picked up on the Invisible Man theme and kicked it (very) old school with a rendition of Wilhelm Storitz from Jules Verne's 1910 romance Le Secret de Wilhelm Storitz.

Get ready for a special entry next week to make up for this forced vacation.
See ya!

Invisible Woman by Ana Freitas

Hi everyone.
It's time for another entry on our blog, our first by a female artist, Ana Freitas.

I don't think I need to establish the relation between Doctor Doom and the Fantastic Four's Invisible Woman, so the only thing to do is enjoy the nice image below.

See you next week.

Doctor Doom by Filipe Andrade

And we're back for another week, and another bad guy.
From "Doc" Savage, we go to "Doc" Doom, ruler of Latveria and Marvel Comics supervillain.

Doc Savage by Pedro Potier

This week's entry comes all the way from the 30s, courtesy of Pedro Potier.
"How in Heck does Bane link up to Doc Savage", I hear you ask?
This sentence on Bane's Wikipedia page did the honors:
"According to his creators, Bane was originally intended as a "dark mirror" of the highly disciplined and multi-skilled pulp hero Doc Savage."

Bane by Jorge Coelho

Back to the grind.
The latest months have been fortunately busy for the FoF contributors and myself, so the blog has been a neglected for a while.
Let's get back on track with the first artist to get into the challenge, the birthday boy Jorge Coelho.

Jorge continues the trend from the last two official posts with another DC Comics villain, Bane.
Enjoy this new entry and go say Happy Birthday to Jorge over on his blog.

Static by Ricardo Venâncio

This week's post is a special one, for a sad reason.

As reported all over the comic book world, last Monday, February 21st, Dwayne McDuffie, one of the most prolific writers for comics and animation of the last years passed away at the age of 49, a day after his birthday.
The outpouring of sadness and praise for McDuffie's work and contribution for diversity on the comic book industry has been coming across the internet, and FoF is joining the tribute to his memory with this post.

Inspired by this post over at Project:Rooftop, asking for redesigns of one of McDuffie's most notable characters, Static, I jumped on the chance to give my humble two cents to this tribute.
From March 4th, drop by Project:Rooftop and see how some talented artists pay their respects to the late writer's life and work, when the redesign site hosts McDuffie Week.

Next week, we'll get back to the regular programming.

Doomsday by Fernando Lucas

Hi everyone, sorry for the temporary silence.
Work has been demanding a lot of concentration in these last few weeks, but here's the FoF blog back on track for a new entry.

This time, we welcome another new addition to the contributing roster.
Fernando Lucas brings us Doomsday, following another DC Comics villain, Darkseid.

Besides sharing the same company, there's some backstory between this two, as explained on Doomsday's Wikipedia page.

Check back next week for a new entry!
