Tarantino Comics - Issue 47

Wow - It's been over a year since I last posted (since the theatrical release of The Hateful Eight to be exact).  I don't watch as many movies as I used to, but I have a backlog of films I eventually want to get caught up on.  However, my love for comic books has been reignited so I'm super excited for Heroes Con next week.  I went to MegaCon earlier this year (only for a day), but I was disappointed - Unfortunately the show has become too media and Anime driven.   At least Heroes Con is still an comic convention, so I'm looking forward to getting some awesome sketches with back issue diving in between (in particular, I'm searching for old issues of Batman, Daredevil, and 70's Marvel titles).

Anyways, let me present an issue illustrated 3 years ago - Tarantino Comics #47 illustrated by Neil Posis at MegaCon 2014.

Featured on this cover, we see O-Ren Ishii from Kill Bill.  Neil portrayed the deadly assassin posing as an iconic comic book cover image.  I love Neil's artistic vision to maintain the "EC Comics Banner", but allowed it to flow into frame with blood - a great representation of the iconic splatter seen in the Crazy 88 battle inspired by Lady Snowblood.

If you want to see more of Neil's work, check out his blog: . Not only does he draw beautiful comic art, but he illustrates a decent amount of movie icons as well.
