The Thing art book
The Thing is a 1982 cult horror classic from director John Carpenter. Over the decades, it has spawned the creepy survival horror game of the same name and even a remake. Recent movies like It Follows have been inspired by it. And just in time for the 35th anniversary, fans have another item to look forward to. The Thing art book is coming, thanks to independent publisher Printed In Blood. And the officially licensed art book will feature never-before-seen illustrations from different creators.

What else can fans expect from the book? It will contain 400 pages with artists participating from over 40 countries in different backgrounds like comics, fine art, animation, and illustration. In the comic book realm, artists like David Mack are attached to the project. (Here’s his Jessica Jones cover below.)

Tim Bradstreet (The Punisher), Cat Staggs (Wonder Woman), Jim Calafiore (Secret Six), Dave Crosland (Invader Zim), and Frazer Irving (Batman & Robin) have also collaborated on The Thing art book.

The Thing 35th Anniversary Art Book will feature an introduction by Eli Roth, who’s known for directing the Hostel and Cabin Fever films. Not to mention, the afterword is written by John Carpenter as he shares his thoughts on his film.
