Posted on

Vice Press are thrilled to announce are releases for this years Thought Bubble Sequential Arts Festival at the Royal Armouries, Leeds.

Vice Press, under license from Studiocanal, is proud to announce an officially licensed, limited edition screen print for Joe Cornish’s “Attack The Block”.

As one of our favourite artists, we were extremely excited to work with Matt Taylor on what we think is one of the best British movies of the past ten years.

Matt has done an amazing job utilising his unique colour palette and style to create this eye catching and dramatic composition.

Attack The Block by Matt Taylor
Edition of 185
24”x18” Screen Print
Glow In The Dark Ink Layer
Printed by VG Kids
100# Construction Pure White French Paper
£30

Here’s a little from artist Matt Taylor on the piece:
"It was a real pleasure to work with Vice Press on this piece - there’s a lot of people doing illustrated alternative movie posters these days, but the fact they’re focusing on British properties made it for me. Attack the Block is a bit of an underlooked gem of a movie - that mix of comedy with genuinely scary sci-fi horror, and i wanted to do the movie justice for this release. John Boyega’s Moses is such a magnetic character, he had to be front and centre, standing down the aliens advancing on him, with the whole thing at a titled uneasy angle that hopefully calls to mind the seventies horror and sci-fi that the film is indebted to. I’m already planning my next thing for Vice Press nd it couldn’t be more different…"

 

Vice Press, under license from Rebellion, is also proud to announce the next releases in our officially licensed line of limited edition 2000 AD art prints.

These next exciting releases have been produced by Vice Press co-owner Matt Ferguson and feature the classic 2000 AD characters “Strontium Dog” and “Judge Dredd”.

About Carlos Ezquerra:

Born in Zaragoza, Spain, Carlos Ezquerra started his career in comics drawing romantic and adventure strips for Scottish publishers D. C. Thomson.

 In 1974 his talent was recognised by London publisher IPC, who induced him to desert to the enemy to work on a new war comic, Battle Picture Weekly, where he designed and drew hard-hitting strips like Rat Pack, Major Eazy and El Mestizo.

 Carlos then moved on to the future - to a new comic called 2000AD, for which he and writer John Wagner created the multi-award-winning Judge Dredd.  

Another Wagner-Ezquerra creation, the perennially popular Strontium Dog, soon joined Dredd on the 2000AD roster. Others followed, including Fiends of the Eastern Front, Al’s Baby, and adaptations of Harry Harrison's Stainless Steel Rat novels.

 Ezquerra has also collaborated numerous times with writer Garth Ennis. His credits include Bloody Mary, Adventures in the Rifle Brigade and two Preacher specials (The Good Old Boys and The Saint of Killers miniseries) for DC Comics, as well as Just a Pilgrim for Black Bull Entertainment and War Stories for Dynamite

 He is currently drawing Strontium Dog and about to start a new War Stories series with Garth Ennis.

 In July 2015 at San Diego Comic Con International, Carlos was awarded the “Inkpot Award for Achievement in Comics Arts”

“Dredd” by Carlos Ezquerra will be available on Thursday the 10th of September at 6pm BST at www.Vice-Press.com.

When John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra created Judge Dredd, they created a character whose costume and look embodied everything that he stood for. An iconic character easily recognisible from silhouette alone,” said Vice in a press release. “Carlos Ezquerra is simply one of the greatest comic book artists in history and we grew up loving the characters that he created and drew. To work with Carlos Ezquerra was a dream come true. It was an honor and privilege to work with such a legend of the industry and we are extremely pleased with this piece.
