Edgar Wright's phenomenal "Cornetto Trilogy," made up of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End, and starring the dynamic duo of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, lends itself beautifully to EC-inspired comic cover treatment from Mondo.
Like most of Mondo's poster offerings, these sold out in a flash upon release, but we wanted to share them with you anyways.
Created by artist Johnny Dombrowski, the posters reimagine Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End in the retro-style of classic EC Comics. My personal favorite? The Shaun of the Dead one, which is based on classic Tales from the Crypt covers!
"Edgar Wright’s visual storytelling is some of the best in the business - showing more in seconds than others can do in hours. Blink and you can miss a shot, a joke, a reference, a swan, anything. The Cornetto Trilogy is a perfect love letter to all of those zombie-cop-alien movies so I wanted to create a series that would match it. After talking it over with the folks at Mondo, a simultaneous love letter to EC comics seemed like a good fit. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a few issues on set." - Johnny Dombrowski
