The Video Dead-Vhs Cover

An excellent box art illustration, clearly influenced by(or trying really hard to be one of) Iron Maiden's LP covers.
Pity the film itself is so bad.

Bonus: Alternate Cover

Surprise Party with Baby Huey

The lack of funny animal comics is appalling. Hopefully this go part way to remedying.

Frazetta and Youth

[Enlarge Here]

Another beautiful picture

(note: the idea that all drugs are inherently evil is something I definitely do not agree with. Nor, likely, did Frazetta. There is a famous story where Frazetta turned in a well done anti-smoking ad. And when he turned it in he had the art in one hand and a cigarette in the other. Do what you got to do to keep the room over your head yours, I guess)

Remember the Sixties (Robert Crumb)

(From 1982)
Ah, Crumb, how I never tire of you, even though you do bitch about the quite good (Bakshi's) Fritz the Cat too much.

Hey, I've never shown any Alex Toth? Fixed.

The Excellent book cover of Sherlock Holmes

[Enlarge Here]

Artist unknown.
(Also, the film is actually pretty good. Not the best of Wilder--in my mind the 2nd best director of the Hollywood Golden Age, only behind Howard Hawks-- but pretty good)

Hirshfeld challenges Disney

[Enlarge Here]

Originally from john k's site, I'm redirecting it here because it was posted a long time ago, and even then buried in a lengthy essay. Here, by itself, it has an entirely new meaning. Enjoy

A saucier Velma

Once again, eons better than the drawings in the actual cartoon.

Queen of Blood

Another AI poster for a film that is not nearly as good as the art would lead you to believe.

Thanks to negative pleasure
