As part of Mondo’s fantastic, ongoing Universal Monsters series, Francesco Francavilla gives us his brilliant take on the science fiction classic, “This Island Earth.” This Island Earth is a 1955 American cult-classic, science fiction film directed by Joseph M. Newman. It is based on the novel of the same name by Raymond F. Jones. The film stars Jeff Morrow as the alien Exeter, Faith Domergue as Dr. Ruth Adams, and Rex Reason as Dr. Cal Meacham. The film was one of the first major science fiction films to be made in Technicolor and Francesco’s style fits it perfectly.
Follow Mondo on TWITTER this Thursday, September 19th. As always, the print will be released at a random time. Let’s also keep our fingers crossed that Francesco gets the opportunity to launch his retro BATMAN series,”The Crimson Harvest.” Follow Francesco Francavilla on TWITTER to stay up to date on this and upcoming projects from this immensely talented artists.
