Cool Ass Cinema Book Reviews: Showdown Edition!
THE GREAT SHOWDOWNS
By Scott C.
144 pages; hardcover; color; first edition September 2012
Scott C. is an artist, painter and illustrator of comics and kids books. He's even dabbled in video games. His work has been showcased in galleries and publications worldwide. Many of his cinematic pieces are gathered in this collection, The Great Showdowns, due out October 30th, 2012. Predominantly leaning towards popular, well known and classic science fiction films, the artwork consists of lively, humorous instances of conflict as per the books title.
The images evoke a child-like sensibility that leap off the page. Those with an interest in paintings and young-at-heart, "cute" drawing styles, will be the main audience for this publication. Within these pages you'll find some classic confrontations as diverse as SPINAL TAP, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, BEETLEJUICE, JAWS, BACK TO THE FUTURE, ALIENS, THE THING and THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON to name a small sampling.
Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie Howser MD) contributes a touching Foreword and there's an Introduction by Scott Campbell, the author.
