Francis Manapul’s ‘Batman Image’ To Grace The Cover Of The Official New York Comic Con Poster

Comic Con is about to descend upon the fair folks of New York City at the Jarvis Center, October 9- 12.  This year, the official poster for the massive pop culture event is done by DC’s Detective Comics artist, Francis Manapul.

NYC14_DC_Ad1_53fe1fcacbeac7.20635460

 

It seems fitting that the Dark Knight would take center stage as it IS his 75th Anniversary.  Manapul has placed The World’s Greatest Detective smack dab in the middle of New York’s five boroughs and even though it’s not Gotham, he looks quite at home.  What do you think?

EXCLUSIVE: Orlando Arocena Salutes FX’s “Sons Of Anarchy” With An Incredible Tribute Print

BLURPPY EXCL TM

On September 9th, fans of FX’s, Sons Of Anarchy fire up their Harley Davidsons for the tumultuous sixth and final season of the hit series.  This season stars Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal, Ron Perlman, Drea de Matteo, Jimmy Smits, Theo Rossi, Mark Boone Junior, David Labrava, Tommy Flanagan, and Marilyn Manson as the white supremacist ‘Ron Tully.’

soa-poster-final

Poster Posse member Orlando Arocena pays homage to the show with a sensational vector tribute that perfectly captures the tone of the series.  As usual, Orlando’s process shots boggle the mind giving even more credence to the overall perfection of the end product.

SONS_OF_ANARCHY_Orlando Arocena_Vector_2014_lines SONS_OF_ANARCHY_Orlando Arocena_Vector_2014-anchors

We asked Orlando about the print and here is what he had to say.  “I’ve been a fan of ‘Sons of Anarchy’ since it debuted and since then there have been many dramas, schemes and violent twists all played out around the ‘MC’ and their main source of revenue – GUNS. We’ve seen friends become bitter enemies and have seen Jax work up the confidence to weather the tough times being a father and leader of his notorious outlaw motorcycle club. I don’t fully know (or have not seen any pics) of how Marylin Manson will be rolled into this final season, but I’m certain he’ll give the MC and Mr. Mayhem a run for their guns.”

Well Orlando, here is a shot of Marylin Manson and Jax sitting together wearing their prison orange in a rather… uncomfortable looking environment.
