A Look at Sean Phillips' Cover Art For Criterion Collection

Comic book artist Sean Phillips, best known for the likes of Criminal, Kill Or Be Killed, The Fade Out, Incognito, Marvel Zombies, Sleeper, WildC.A.T.s, Batman and Hellblazer unveiled his original artwork for the new Criterion Collection edition of The Great Escape.

And why he went for that shot.

And this is how it looks with dressage and livery.

Sadly this may be his last for a little while.

So here's a chance to look back at some of his cover artwork for the prestigious film archival, collation and presentation company… it's been a long time since those unwieldy laserdiscs…

12 Angry Men

Mildred Pierce

 

Sweet Smell Of Success

Mister Johnson

 

Breaker Morant

In The Heat Of The Night

And the ink work behind that.

 

On The Waterfront

And a sketch of Marlon…

Blast Of Silence

 

And Night Of The Living Dead

It makes for quite a gallery, no?
