On the Beat With Franco at C2E2 2021

My post-event coverage of C2E2 continues with creator Franco. After interviewing Franco at C2E2 2021, Johngy's Beat Special Contributor Joey Roth once again talks to him for an update interview. That interview can be found at On the Beat With Franco at C2E2 2021.
Franco is the artist and co-writer with Art Baltazar of Tiny Titans. The two creators won the 2009 and 2011 Eisner Award for Best Publication for Kids. The pair won another Eisner in 2014 for Best Publication for early readers with Itty Bitty Hellboy. Franco has a fantastic artist and is very popular on the comics scene. His resume and portfolio is quite impressive as you can see on ComicBookDB (the Comic Book database).
Franco also partnered with Sara Richard on The Ghost, The Owl. I listed The Ghost, The Owl in Great Reads for Global Traveler magazine. As I state in the interview, while The Ghost, The Owl might be aimed at kids, I find it immensely entertaining. The text goes perfectly with the artwork. It is a beautiful marriage and I was mesmerized the first time I read it.
Along with Art, Franco owns Aw Yeah Comics, my favorite comic store. Conveniently located a couple blocks from my condo, I get all of my comics there and love their occasional in-store events.
