Francesco Francavilla cover design commentary for DETECTIVE COMICS #874

DC Comics has posted:

 

Francesco Francavilla shared an inside look at the new issue of Detective with us yesterday, and today he was kind enough to walk us through the design of #874’s cover. Check out what he sent us!

“Since everyone seemed to enjoy our previous “making of” the Detective cover, here’s another look behind the curtains for the new cover of Detective 874, out this week (we decided to showcase a new cover that was more specific to the story elements that Scott had introduced and will be developed soon in the second Snyder/Jock arc).

As with every cover I do, I always try to come up with multiple concepts/layouts for the editors to choose from. The number of layouts varies from project to project; in this specific case I had a clear idea of what I wanted to showcase on the cover, so 2 different options were enough to nail down the concept.

DETECTIVE COMICS #874 is in stores today.
