Default SHAM033 - Don't Torture a Duckling: The Artwork

So here is panel A for Shameless' forthcoming Don't Torture a Duckling! I really like this as I think it has a rather nice retro, VHS rental feel to it. What do you think?



(Reverse will follow in a few weeks.)

Fear, death, and boobs - that's what a proper Giallo artwork needs!

Really nice!

Greetings!

It does look very VHS-y doesn't it? I like it!

I really like if for a couple of other reasons.

Reminds me of mid 90s Zalman King straight to VHS soft porn effort, the sort of thing you now see in poundland.

Is it fitting for Lucio Fulci's 'Masterpiece'? Not so sure.

Will it help sales? Probably!

will probably hurt sales, as it only refers to a specific scene in the film, and may give casual buyers the wrong idea...personally its the kind of cover id ignore due to overkill during the latter stages of video shop rental ahem (the bloody softcore thing, nae fulci etc) IMO as always, just putting my tuppence in....

I can guess where the First time release in the UK sticker will go.

A lenticular sleeve having the guy close his eyes and fingers would be fun.

In my eyes the panel is head and shoulders above the Blue Underground and Anchor Bay covers used for the Region 1 edition.

I also can't get enough of Barbara.
