Throwback Thursday - Whitechapel Superheroes!

Back in 2010, Warren Ellis was running a website called Whitechapel and every now and again they would have an art contest. One that we enjoyed was the 'what if a famous director made a film about a comic character?' We couldn't resist creating a couple of entries.

The first was 'What if David Lynch directed Spiderman?'


We got a lot of reaction to this shot and it was even featured on one of our favourite sites, iO9:

 

The next contest was 'What if Malcolm Mclaren directed a JLA movie?'


We couldn't resist the idea of a punk rock Martian Manhunter on the streets! This image appeared on a number of sites including this one:

Enki Bilal Tribute!

April 1977. I was eleven years old and had just bought my first issue of Heavy Metal magazine (I was lucky to have some pretty cool parents!). Inside the pages, I would discover the likes of artists such as Moebius, Druillet, Caza, Richard Corben and one of my all time favourites - Enki Bilal. Enki blew my mind and forever altered my creative world - I devoured his incredible work in The Nikopol Trilogy, The Hunting Party, and The Dormant Beast.

Heavy Metal started a lifelong love of comics, art and artists.

In 2008, we decided to create a photographic tribute to Enki Bilal and created four images based on some of his drawings. Even though the efforts are crude and simplistic compared to our current creations, we are still really proud of our attempt to bring the characters of Bilal to life.

SYNOPSIS

There are worse things than day-old donuts.

Just ask George and Vince, two directionless slackers on a late-night road trip that leaves them lost in the middle of nowhere during the outbreak of a zombie apocalypse. A train derailment in a nearby town has released deadly chemicals into the air. The dead have risen and are craving more than just snacks.

Taking shelter in a twenty-four hour donut shop, our hapless heroes struggle to stay on top of the food chain using whatever makeshift weapons they can lay their hands on to battle against legions of the dead, psychotic survivalists, and a deranged zombie cop and his killing squad who are determined to take back the donut shops, destroy all humans and establish a new zombie world order.

Survival is on the menu in this non-stop, balls-to-the-wall, bite-sized horror-comedy that proves the end of the world is full of laughs, lunacy and sprinkles!
