INTER-CONNECTING ART: The French 2008 Marvel Posters By Gabriele Dell'Otto

I'm a simple dude. I'll take inter-connecting artwork over your foil embossed, die-cut, glow-in-the-dark, sealed-with-a-kiss 'collector's items' any day. A bit of a rare find in today's releases, I want to give a thumbs up to the artists who mastered the Herculean feat of making separate individual images as strong and cohesive as they are as a unified whole the only way I know how - by making a series of posts about them.

First up, Gabriele Dell'Otto, a man who has done some of his best work for the European arms of Marvel and DC, including this 5 poster spread for the House of Ideas back in 2008.

Don't believe such a wicked unit of Hulk, Iron Man, Storm, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Black Cat, Nightcrawler and Shadowcat could ever be separate images? Here are the books the individual posters were originally included inside;

Never has living in France offered so many benefits! Hopefully this jaw-dropper will be available in the American markets someday - I don't know about you but my walls need this poster!

  1. Further proof that Dell'otto is the man! Just based off his art alone, I'm going to get or try to get the New Avengers annual with his art. Of course those Revengers are also a credible hook.
