BELIEVE IT OR NOT: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS MAGAZINE DAY!


As far as I can tell, a National Magazine Day does not exist. That is surprising. Also, disappointing because I wanted to post this pic in celebration. Lame.

THESE TWO....

T2 POSTER


WONG ALIEN : MONDO


I love this Mondo poster by Pascal Blanché for tomorrow's "Alien Day" Celebration.... but am frustrated that the eggs do not look like they did in 'Alien'.

Instead, they appear to have a shape more akin to the eggs in 'Alien: Covenant'.

Here is Giger's original eggs from 'Alien'.




This is what the egg looks like in 'Covenant':



Comparisons: Alien/Mondo/Covenant
Notice the silhouette differences.


Mondo and Covenant's eggs are more teardrop in shape.


The only reason why I take issue is because this is specifically tributing Ridley Scott's 'Alien' movie. Similarly, if you're doing a poster for 'Return of the Jedi', don't have Snowtroopers fighting Gungans.

* It seems every time Mondo releases an Alien poster, there is some element being used from the wrong movie
