The illustrations for movies from the 70ies and 80ies done for the posters and VHS boxes are really something. More often than not they are way better than the movie itself. This one makes a fine example of that.
You often hear that hands and feet are the most difficult to draw and paint. That might be true, but teeth are nearly impossible as well. Often when done not a 100% right they make the drawing look uncanny, which I always see as a quality. Illustrator Andrew Ritchie knows all this, and puts it to some use (the picture is from Cthulhu Tales #1 by BOOM! studios).
I'm a real sucker for gore (of the fake & safe type). I don't want to know why, but things are like that. But even I as a well-trained gore consumer felt a bit pale when I first laid eye to these pages from some manga. If anyone knows from which manga it is, please leave a message!
In the eighties Amsterdam was the stage for some hefty rioting (actually Amsterdam was a stage for rioting from the sixties onwards.
