Based in New York, he is more commonly known as Franco (like all of the other one-name celebrities). Franco is a partner in crime (or comics) with Art Baltazar, featured here yesterday. Franco won two Eisner Awards for writing the DC Comics series Tiny Titans. Franco and Art won their third Eisner in 2014 for the Dark Horse Comics children's series Itty Bitty Hellboy. Also, in 2014, Franco won a Harvey Award for Best Original Graphic Publication for Younger Readers (Tiny Titans).
Art and Franco have a lot of chemistry together and it is easy to see why their collaboration produces a lot of entertainment. A comic con is not a great place to conduct an interview with both of them together, but someday, I hope to get them in one interview. If I add Joey in that mix, it will really be over the top awesomeness.
When he is not immersed in the world of comics, Franco is a teacher. I would love to attend one of his classes to see him in another environment. I imagine he is just as entertaining while being informative.
Check AwYeahComics.com for more info on Franco and Art. Also, go to C2E2.com for updates on the convention. Lastly, follow Joey Roth on social media.
Thanks to Franco for his consideration and friendship. Thanks to Joey for his fantastic mic work. Thanks to C2E2 for the hospitality.
