It Belongs in a Museum!
These two projects by artist Marko Manev
take epic and make it gorgeous. You can no longer buy the Lord of the Rings
ones, but the Villain Noir prints will be on sale this weekend at the Bottleneck Gallery booth at NYCC. There will also be a special sale Saturday on their website
Fans Do Cool Things
I've been less-than-pleased by the two trailers
we've seen so far for World War Z
. I understand the need to create a main character where there was none in the books (or, rather, where there were several main characters). But does there really have to be a tired old "X is the only hope to save humanity! And he gets separated from his family and has to find them!" plotline? I don't give a hoot about Brad Pitt
's character. I want to see the zombie apocalypse!
Ahem. Apologies. What I meant to get at with that mini-rant is that, even if the movie's awful (which it might not be), fans can always be relied upon to create awesome things related to books they love. Several of those awesome things can be seen behind the cut courtesy of the BLURPPY Artists Project
, which invited eight artists to create World War Z
My Spidey Sense Is Tingling
I've been in a noir mood lately. And I'm always in a geek mood. So I'm really feeling these superhero noir posters by Marko Manev
at the moment. Prayer circle for him to do a Black Widow!
