Exclusive: The Original ‘RoboCop’ Poster Was Actually a Painting, and Now You Can Buy It As a Metallic Print

Part man, part machine, all cop. That’s the tagline you’ll find on the original teaser poster for the 1980s favorite RoboCop. The poster is a classic, and any fan can immediately picture RoboCop stepping out of the Detroit Police car, the lights flashing bright red as your imagination runs wild with the prospect of having a robot police officer taking care of justice on the streets. You might not have realized this, but that theatrical poster  for the Paul Verhoeven movie wasn’t simply a touche...

Cool Stuff: Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy Gets Three Comic Book Style Prints by Johnny Dombrowski

When you think of the greatest film trilogies of all time, it’s easy to remember Back to the Future, Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones, and Star Wars. But don’t you dare leave out The Cornetto Trilogy. It might be a makeshift trilogy comprised of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End, linked only by the fact that Simon Pegg and Nick Frost star in all of the films directed by Edgar Wright, but thematically, they are an incredible trio of stories that are hilarious, bloody, twisted, and ...

‘The Thing’ Comes to Life in Matthew Peak’s New Print from Bottleneck Gallery

"These posters were used to advertise expeditions and were also hung in NASA facilities and other government organizations," says Bored Panda. "However, when astronauts got bored of the standard group photos they decided to spi...

“The Long Tomorrow”: Discover Mœbius’ Hard-Boiled Detective Comic That Inspired Blade Runner (1975)

Alejandro Jodorowsky may never have made his film adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune, but plenty came out of the attempt — including, one might well argue, Blade Runner. Making that still hugely influential adaptation of Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Ridley Scott and his collaborators looked to a few key visual sources, one of them a two-part short story in comic form called "The Long Tomorrow." Illustrated by none other than French artist Mœbius, one of the richest vis...

The Art of Sci-Fi Book Covers: From the Fantastical 1920s to the Psychedelic 1960s & Beyond

If you've never seen Gentlemen Broncos, the little-seen third feature by the Napoleon Dynamite-making husband-and-wife team Jared and Jerusha Hess, I highly recommend it. You must, though, enjoy the peculiar Hess sense of humor, a blend of the almost objectively detached and the heartily sophomoric fixed upon the preoccupations of deeply unfashionable sections of working-class America. In Gentlemen Broncos it makes itself felt immediately, even before the film's story of a young aspiring...
