Figuratively and literally, the Hoth location in The Empire Strikes Back is cool. It’s only in the film for a few minutes, but the ice battle on Hoth has created some of our most enduring images from the entire Star Wars saga. In fact, it’s so important, rumor has it J.J. Abrams is doing something similar in Star Wars Episode VII.
So if you like Hoth, how do you tell the world? Well, artist Ian Glaubinger has a suggestion. Dark Ink Art will release his latest print, Hoth: Protect Our Wildlife, at 11 a.m. PST September 26. We’re happy to not only debut the piece, but show you a bunch of behind the scenes images and let Glaubinger himself explain how the poster came to be. It’s a fascinating look into the creation of a seemingly simple work like this and a must read for art fans. Check out the Ian Glaubinger Hoth poster below. Read More »

If Matt Reeves has done his job right with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and we think he has, the film will drive people back to the original series. Viewers should be so curious about what comes next that the new film will turn people on to not only the 1968 original, but its sequels as well. Artist Alex Ross is doing that, too. He’s releasing four brand new Planet of the Apes posters based on covers of the Boom Studios Comic Planet of the Apes: Cataclysm. They’ll first be available at San Diego Comic-Con via Acme Archives. Check out the Alex Ross Planet of the Apes posters below. Read More »
