In stores this week is Black Beetle #2, the newest issue of Francesco Francavilla's miniseries starring the eponymous pulp inspired hero. Also this week is the ComicsPRO summit, where members of the comics retail trade organization gather to discuss how best to promote progress in the direct market. To that end, publishers like Marvel, DC Comics, Dark Horse, Image and others are invited to the meeting to speak directly with ComicsPRO members. Publishers typically bring some exclusive items as gifts for attendees, and this year Dark Horse is presenting each member with an exclusive variant cover to Black Beetle #1, drawn by Francavilla and limited to only to only 300 copies.

Recognizing that there are plenty of fans who would love to get a look at a rare piece of Francavilla art, Dark Horse has provided ComicsAlliance with a look at the exclusive cover, which you can check it out.
