Mondo to Release Criterion Cover Posters for Guillermo del Toro’s CRONOS and THE DEVIL’S BACKBONE

by     Posted 1 year, 33 days ago


The covers of Criterion Collection Blu-rays/DVDs are renowned for their stunning artwork, but strangely, they’re almost never turned into posters.  Out of the hundreds of Criterion titles, only 18 have posters you can buy on the Criterion website.  Thankfully, Mondo is picking up a couple of Criterion’s covers by releasing posters for Guillermo del Toro‘s Cronos and The Devil’s Backbone.  The Cronos cover was done by Hellboy artist Mike Mingola, and while The Devil’s Backbone cover looks like Mingola’s work, it’s actually by Guy Davis.  Both pieces are gorgeous, and Mondo will have them on sale tomorrow.

The posters will be on sale at a random time on Wednesday, July 31st.  Follow @MondoNews for the announcement.

    Wow, yes — the 2nd one looks a lot like Mignola’s work too — anyway, great looking posters. Love them both.

      good eye on the Devil’s Backbone poster! it looks similar because Guy Davis did a lot of artwork for the B.P.R.D. comics, which of course take their visual influence from Mignola. The B.P.R.D. and Hellboy graphic novels are some of my favorites simply on artwork alone (of course the stories kick ass too!)

        I thought it could be someone who also worked a lot in Mignola’s comics

    Awesome news! I love MIGNOLA (Not Mingola as the writers on this site seems to think) & Davis.
