Back in 2014, artist Matt Ferguson created a stunning poster for Guardians of the Galaxy inspired by the original poster art for the release of Star Wars in 1977 (it was one of Germain Lussier’s favorite pieces that year). Sadly, it was a privately commissioned piece of art, so fans weren’t able to get ahold of it to add to their own collection. Now you can get frustrated all over again as Matt Ferguson has created a poster for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 inspired by the classic poster art for The Empire Strikes Back. It might even be more stunning than the first one.

Any fan of Joss Whedon‘s sci-fi series Firefly will tell you that it’s one of those shows that came to an end far too soon. It only lasted for a single 14-episode season, but that was enough for it to become a cult favorite TV series with a rabid following always hoping for the show to make some kind of comeback. Fans can take solace in the fact that they got a feature film to follow up the show in the form of Serenity, but of course, they still want more.
Sadly, we’re not likely to ever get any new episodes of Firefly or a sequel to Serenity, but maybe artist Stephen Byrne can help keep the fans at bay with his creation of a teaser for The Animated Adventures of Firefly. Watch the fanmade teaser for a Firefly animated series after the jump. Read More »

Even if the excitement for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is high for plenty of fans, I think we can all agree that the marketing campaign has left something to be desired. Not only have the trailers not been cut all that well, but the posters have been pretty unremarkable as well. Thankfully, Poster Posse has delivered some original, incredible artwork to pay tribute to the first big screen face-off between the Bat of Gotham and the Son of Krypton.
Below, we’ve gathered some of our favorite pieces from Poster Posse’s call for artists to give the battle of the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel their own artistic flair. Pretty much all of these pieces are better than any of the theatrical posters we’ve seen so far.
