Focus Comic – Variant Cover I – Line Art by Francisco Rodriguez – Colored by Ilaria Castagna


We are proud to announce that we are now officially releasing  all 16 covers (1 main cover and 15 variant covers) of Focus Comic for online purchase.

This is variant cover featuring a heroic pose of Focus, an autistic hero charging towards the audience at great speed. Line art of Focus and inks by Francisco Rodriguez  who is a contributing artist  who is a strong supporter of autism awareness and acceptance. Focus is seen here wearing a light bending suit which resembles a disco ball with cubist contours. The light bending suit manipulates light in many ways. Focus is completely human underneath and posses the power of precognition which is tied to his autism. Focus has an inbuilt visor which provides him with data. He is able to focus in on the data and calculate probabilities in his mind effectively due to his autism. Subsequently, the power of foresight gives him the ability to prevent bad things from happening as a hero.



Francisco Rodriguez is known for working on Ecos, Ricanstruction and horror. His style of drawing is striking and bold, using abstract lines effectively in a way that grabs the viewers imagination. Francisco is great with line art and inking as can be seen in this impressive variant cover. Ilaria Castagna had the pleasure of coloring this variant cover by introducing a spectrum of colors and special lighting effects to give Focus a disco ball appearance with cubist contours. This variant cover captures movement and energy in a way that is iconic for a super hero comic cover. Ilaria had fun coloring this cover and feels privileged to be involved in this important social cause project to promote autism awareness and acceptance.
