Even with as strange as Archie Comics have gotten over the past few years, I don't think any of us ever expected to see an all-new ongoing series where Archie, Betty, Veronica and the rest of the gang had to contend with the apocalyptic rise of the undead.

Less than a year old, Marvel's new Hawkeye series has already become known for the top-level artistic talent it offers on a regular basis, from David Aja's smart and stylish covers and interior work through guest art by the likes of Javier Pulido, Steve Lieber and Jesse Hamm.

We've written many times about the uncommonly beautiful artwork of Francesco Francavilla -- whose stuff you've seen in Batman: The Black Mirror, Captain America and Black Widow and more than 70 cover illustrations in 2012 alone -- and as long as he keeps putting gorgeous new stuff out, we're never going to stop.
