2013 seems to be the year of Oscar-themed pop culture art. Gallery 1988 did an amazing event, Mondo is preparing their own extravaganza and Scott Campbell has been adding to his Great Showdowns.

All this week leading up to the 85th Annual Academy Awards, Campbell has been immortalizing some of this year’s Best Picture nominees as Showdowns. And they are just too cool. That’s Argo above but, after the jump, see Beasts of the Southern Wild, Lincoln, Les Miserables and Django Unchained as only Scott C could do them. Read More »

Academy-Award winner and current nominee Christoph Waltz hosted Saturday Night Live over the weekend and used the occasion to poke fun at his two-time collaborator, Quentin Tarantino. The SNL team created a sketched called Djesus Uncrossed starring Waltz as Jesus, back from the dead and hell bent on revenge. It features obvious and hilarious references to Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds and, of course, Django Unchained. Check it out below. Read More »

The last time we previewed any material from the comic adaptation of Quentin Tarantino‘s original script for Django Unchained, the film wasn’t out yet. So it wasn’t easy to talk about how the comic exists as a piece of storytelling related to the movie. Now, we’re a couple months into the movie’s life as a near-immediate cultural touchstone, so it’s safe to guess that most people at least have some idea of the story’s basics.

The comic promises to have some scenes that didn’t make the film’s final cut, with interior art rendered by R.M. Guéra (Scalped) and Jason Latour. The second issue of the adaptation hits tomorrow, February 13, but you can get a look at a few pages below. The pages in question include the comic rendition Dr. Schultz’s explanation of the origin of Broomhilda’s name.

Although Quentin Tarantino‘s works aren’t overtly linked like, say, the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are, his devoted fans know they’re all connected in smaller, subtler ways. Perhaps the most famous association is between Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction — Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen) and Vincent Vega (John Travolta) are brothers — but there’s also the offhand mention of True Romance‘s Alabama (Patricia Arquette) in Reservoir Dogs, the familial relationship between Ingourious Basterds‘ Donnie Donowitz (Eli Roth) and True Romance‘s Lee Donowitz (Saul Rubinek), and so on.

Tarantino’s latest, Django Unchained, takes place a century before all those other films, making it a little more difficult to connect it to the rest of his oeuvre. But fear not, Tarantino lovers — the master filmmaker has found a way. Hit the jump to find out what it is.
