Yesterday saw the trailer for Avengers: Age Of Ultron burst online and as a result, the interweb starting screaming in excitement. Age Of Ultron certainly looks like an exciting movie and superhero fans were salivating at teases of the ‘Hulkbuster’ Iron Man armour as well as plenty of conflict between Captain America, Thor the rest of the team. Viewers were even treated to glimpses at new characters to the Marvel cinematic world, Quiksilver and Scarlet Witch as well as the reassurance that Nick Fury was still around to support. Noticeably absent was The Vision, Paul Bettany’s step up from voicing Tony Stark’s household security system to full on Avenger status seems to be under lock and key at the moment..
In honour of the darker, sinister tone of the movie, British artist Doaly has cooked up this rather tasty Avengers: Age Of Ultron poster, just for a bit of fun. Take a look!
Doaly’s poster playfully riffs on the song hauntingly crooned by James Spader’s menacing Ultron throughout the trailer and features the villain standing atop a broken and beaten Avengers.
Last week Cult Collective were not the only ones to launch a brand new website. The Poster Posse launched their own dedicated website alongside their latest project, and official collaboration with Disney to celebrate their upcoming animation Big Hero 6.
Inspired by the Marvel Comics series created by Steven T. Seagle and Duncan Rouleau in the late 90’s, Big Hero 6 follows in the footsteps of Disney and Marvel’s other recent super hero team movie, Guardians Of The Galaxy as another example of how the mouse house are putting faith into lesser known Marvel characters.
Check out some of the great posters that the Poster Posse have created!
For those of us that grew up in the late 80’s and 90’s, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles helped define our childhood. Along with other cartoons such as He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, G.I Joe (or Action Force, if like me you are British) and Tranformers, TNMT were a institution. TNMT always felt different. Cooler. Unlike the others, they were a bonifide comic and cartoon series, along with a brilliant movie. They were born from something.
Bottleneck Gallery, those New York based mavericks of pop culture art, will be celebrating the Heroes in a Half Shell with a group show dedicated to the different iterations of the TNMT, “Turtles in Time”. Opening tonight, Friday October 3rd, from 7pm-10pm at 60 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY 11249. The entire exhibition will run until October 26th. Take a look at some of the amazing artwork that will be on display by reading on!
Brad Bird’s The Iron Giant is enjoying something of a renaissance at the moment. Mondo featured a number of pieces as well as a vinyl release for this month’s Mondo Con and artists such as Bruce Yan have also been releasing some great art work based. It’s easy to forgive as the film is charming and endearing and was criminally overlooked when it first came out.
California based illustrator and designer Khoa Ho clearly has a soft spot for the movie too and has released a timed edition Giclee print inspired by the movie. Read on for more details.agree as he has produced this exciting piece celebrating Batman’s animated adventures.
Poster Posse, the supremely talented troupe brought together by Blurppy, are know for their projects dedicated to producing loving pieces of art for upcoming movies or fan favourites.

We have collected a selection of the pieces from the project along with links to the artists Twitter so you can tell them how ace they are! Have a peak at just a few we have picked out!
Working from hand drawn pencil sketches, Gav layers his images up with some great filters and textures, to great effect. His Big piece reminds me of one of a picture you could create with one of those felt kits you got as a kid while his Iron Man has a graffiti aesthetic. Take a look at a few of his other pieces below!
In our opinion, Jock is not only one of the best artists currently working in comics but also one of the nicest. As testament to this, Jock has donated one of his original pages from the New York Times Best-selling ‘BATMAN: THE BLACK MIRROR‘, written by Scott Snyder, to help raise funds for the treatment of a little boy with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia.
The page, which you can now bid for on eBay, was originally published in DETECTIVE COMICS #871. This is Jock’s original ink on DC panel paper and is sized 11″ x 17″. An original, one of a kind example of Jock’s artwork.
