Italian comics artist Francesco Francavilla is known for his cover and interior art for numerous series for the American comics market, to which he brings a wonderful pulp/flim-noir sensibility.
In addition to his cover and interior sequential art for various company-owned series, he has attracted attention with his creator-owned series Black Beetle, the visual subject matter of which, of course, is right up his alley.
Francavilla’s blog and website seem to have suffered from a lack of attention in recent months, and the latter is unfinished in places, but there still enough of his artwork there to enjoy.
[Addendum: Reader Jerry A! has written to let me know that Francavilla has moved his online attention to Twitter (@f_francavilla) and Tumblr: http://francavillarts.tumblr.com.]
