Forgotten Movie Poster Of The Day 5/6/15

I’m trying out something a little different with this new series. I’m attempting to highlight classic movie posters of yesteryear but not the ones you’d be use to seeing. I want to show you ones that might be a bit left of center, hailing from various countries that never became familiar to American moviegoers. Our first entry belongs to the Australian movie poster for The Temple Of Doom.

I love that the perimeter of the poster is filled with action scenes from the movie really highlighting the style of the old Hollywood Epics. This really helps to tap into the vibe that Lucas and Spielberg were going for and arguably does a better job than the standard poster we are all familiar with.

Check in with us again as we continue to showcase film posters that should have gotten their due.

Cover Of The Day 4/23/15

When it was announced that Alex Maleev would be the artist for the new Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. miniseries, I knew Dark Horse had a winning combination. The title is set in the early days of the Bureau and chronicles Hellboy’s first mission with them. A vital portion of his history which had been undocumented until now. Mike Mignola continues to expand and add considerable depth to the Mignolaverse and based on the covers for issue #2 and #5 presented here, Maleev proves that he was the perfect choice as a collaborator.

Pulp Corner: The Rocketeer – The Complete Adventures

G2Hyrg

The Rocketeer is a character who has done a good job worming its way into the American consciousness over the last 30 or so years, without really doing much. I had loved the 1991 Disney movie when I was a kid, but when I watched it as an adult I felt strangely let down. IDW eventually acquired the rights to the character and put out all of the different parts that make up Dave Stevens main story and released them as a collection. It was time for me to finally investigate the hype.

Pulp Corner: The Art Of Ryan Heshka

I’m in love.

I stumbled upon artist Ryan Heshka’s paintings by mistake, but it’s one of the best accidents I could have hoped for. His unique style is immediately identifiable with an incredible mixture of pulp, golden age comics and some extra sci-fi B Movie weirdness thrown in for good measure. Once I found it, I couldn’t stop looking.

Pulp Corner: The Fashion Of The Flash Gordon Newspaper Strip

As I get older I find myself more interested in what goes into artists’ costume designs for superheroes. So when I stumbled upon this it was a godsend. Apparently, Flash Gordon creator Alex Raymond had released these in 1934 as more or less toys for kids. Essentially, they were paper doll cutouts which you could dress up in various apparel. I’ve always appreciated Raymond’s gorgeous art so seeing these is a real treat. Despite their original intention they work more as a document of Flash Gordon intergalactic fashion from the 1930’s and Alex Raymond’s forward thinking futuristic sense of style.
