When the poster tube from Hero Complex Gallery arrived yesterday, it didn’t take me long to tear it open and unveil this beauty…
This poster by Laurent Durieux was offered at the Hero Complex Gallery’s recent Weapon of Choice show in Los Angeles. I had my sights on this poster from the second they teased it with a bit of the typography back in December. Of course I knew what it was, and considering it was by the incomparable Laurent Durieux, I knew I had to have it.
Durieux is a master when it comes to detail. Check out this line work!
I hope the screen printer got a bonus for pulling off all these layers so masterfully.
This poster is officially licensed by the Dille Family Trust, and is a great homage to the character.
A Mondo Swamp Thing poster has been on this wall of the cave for a long time, but it was time for an upgrade. I’m happy to have Buck Rogers and his Ray Gun standing guard over me.
This week, the League of Extraordinary Bloggers happens to be talking about Spacemen! Check out what my fellow pop culture bloggers are talking about over at Fortune and Glory (Days), Memories of Toymorrow, Goodwill Hunting 4 Geeks, the Mos Espa Collection, and the Man who Stares at Toys.
That poster is sweet. I have a piece in the works for the cave myself that ill be sharing in the coming weeks. I think it’ll be right up your alley!
Consider me intrigued!
Amazing piece of work!! Durieux is quickly becoming a favorite of mine.
Mine too! I was bummed about missing our on Mondo’s King Kong posters, but I like this Buck Rogers one even more.

Man, that poster is a beauty. I wish I could afford Mondo prints and other quality high end pieces like that. I saw a few superhero prints I absolutely adored as well as Mondo’s Back To The Future print.
Maybe one day…
If you can buy these posters directly from the gallery, they are actually pretty affordable–less than $5o for a piece of art that I can hang on the wall is a bargain, in my opinion. But if you have to hit up ebay, then that’s where the prices can really start to hurt.
Plus, there are a lot of great places to look: Hero Complex Art, Mondo, Gallery 1988, Bottleneck Gallery, etc.

Thanks for the pointers, Brian. I have to keep my eyes open now.

What a beautiful poster! And you’re right with the line-art, that’s incredible detailing. I haven’t seen any of the sites you mention for this kind of art before; I’m off to take a look now though…
is this an original? Would you be open to selling it?
