Frank Cho’s Ballpoint Beauties and Batman

Flesk Publications is making the Frank Cho Kickstarted volume Ballpoint Beauties available through Diamond Preview for comic stores in July.

Auto Draft


(W) Frank Cho, Mark Schultz (A/CA) Frank Cho

Frank Cho has been making ballpoint pen drawings purely for himself for over two decades. This is the first time that these rarely seen works have been captured in a dedicated volume. Compiled here are his favorites, many which were done specially for this book. Most pieces are shown in four stages and accompanied by Cho’s commentary to reveal his process. Included within the book are visual guides for drawing anatomy and body parts, plus a short interview where Cho discusses his working methods and answers the most common questions that he receives online. Also included are covers for his creator-owned comic Skybourne, where Cho has incorporated the ballpoint pen in a mixed-media format.
In Shops: Aug 14, 2019 Final Orders Due: May 31, 2019 SRP: $29.95

Though it won’t be coming with this envelope art for the exclusive bonus postcard set for all the Kickstarter supporters.
