Incredible Horror Movie Posters!

I probably shouldn't be thinking about cover art for this book since I don't have any other authors on board yet but the sell really is the most important part isn't it? Who wants to buy a book with a plain white cover? I was thinking I wanted something that looked like a poster for an old horror movie and started looking around the web for examples. I found these pages:

Part 1

Part 2

Now thats how you sell a movie! I know for a fact that Kingdom of the Spiders was a lame piece of junk, but look at the poster art! Ditto for Devil Girl from Mars and The Giant Claw.

Alright, this is just a quick post at lunch. Got to get back to work...

If I come up with a good idea, I'll try to do a sketch for the cover. If you like it, I'll clean it up.

By the way, I'm starting to like Beavis & Butt-head. Is something horribly wrong with me?

Sweet, thanks! If I can't find at least one more author to contribute I'll just put a bunch of my own stories in it. I would love to have a group of writers to bounce ideas off of though. Sigh.

Heh, I love B and B. It's actually a really smart show if you think about it. It was an MTV show that made fun of the people that watched MTV at the time. Have you watched it's spin-off, Daria at all? I remember that was an alright show too.

I've seen clips of Daria, but never got into it. The humor didn't gel with me and the
animation... I don't know. I think it's not as good as Beavis & Butt-head.

I tried to watch The Goode Family and couldn't find any humor at all, or animation. It seemed like an unfunny, leftist imitation of King of the Hill (which I used to like but now can't get into even the early episodes). Maybe Mike Judge should just stick to live-action movies. I liked Office Space and Idiocracy.
