I’ve posted more than a few fine pieces of artwork by famed sequential art illustrator Francesco Francavilla of the Pulp Sunday Blog and frequent contributor to the Comic Twart site. Apparently just before Christmas the subject of the art challenge was Walt Disney’s cult favorite Condorman!
I love Dan O’Bannon’s cult Zombie/Comedy flick, Return of the Living Dead. Love it. I actually saw it on a double bill with the original Terminator at the 62 Drive-In, it was kind of an odd billing as the classic James Cameron film was already on VHS at that point.
That night I came to a horrifying realization while watching Return of the Living Dead, all of the carefully laid plans of my youth in case of Zombie Apocalypse…were pretty much worthless when faced with anything other than George A Romero zombies.
Anyway, if you’ve not had the pleasure of watching Return of the Living Dead you may not recognize the stunning zombie, Tarman, illustrated masterfully below by Mike Hawthorne.
Be warned. There is a moment of Salty Language in this trailer:
Thanks to horrorfanxy for posting the trailer over on YouTube and a tip of the hat to Comic Twart for the heads up on the awesome illustration of Tarman!
I’ve showcased some of Francesco Francavilla’s stunning artwork before on the site, but over at Comic Twart they’ve just finished up their latest round of art with Captain America: The Fighting Avenger as the subject for this go around, and with the upcoming Marvel Comics movie around the corner it seemed a perfect time to post this. Make sure to follow the links above and prepare to have your jaw drop at the great illustrations you will see.
I’ve posted a few pieces from the many, many fine illustrators over at Comic Twart in the past, each week one of their talented artists picks a subject matter for the rest of the community to produce artwork for. A few weeks back, one of my favorite artists, Chris Samnee chose the Ghostbusters.
Another favorite artist of mine, Evan Shaner, gives us his version of a famous scene from the classic movie.
