THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD is arguably one of the best films about the living dead that exists. Director Dan O’Bannon gave us a full-on punks meet (and fight / get eaten by) zombies party film ... that is also low key responsible for adding the undead’s unending desire for brains to zombie lore. Oh, and it also gave us Tarman, thanks to legendary artist William Stout. Needless to say, this film holds a special place in our hearts, and we love making posters for it.
But back to Tarman … tomorrow we’ve got two new posters with our guy front and center, by artist Florian Bertmer. There’s so much to love about Florian’s choices with this poster, from its incredible line work to its framing as an old punk flier.
The posters will be available in three flavors: a regular version, as well as two color variants inspired by records that were probably in heavy rotation in Suicide’s tape deck. The regular version and the “Devilock” variant will be available online tomorrow. There will also be a third “Nothing Left Inside” variant available next month at our booth at DesignerCon. (More info on that soon!)
These first two posters will be available Tuesday, October 26 at 11AM CT on The Drop at mondoshop.com.
