Walter White Wednesday 91

With this post, I want to highlight some truly amazing fan art.  Now, I've done this before with Walter White Wednesday (click  here!) but the show continues to inspire people to truly go all-out, so it's time for another round.

First, artist Francesco Francavilla created some wonderful visual tributes to Breaking Bad.  Check out his work in the link!

Next, Hungarian artist Zsolt Molnar (he works under the name Zsutti) created posters for every one of Breaking Bad's 62 episodes.  It took him repeated viewings of each episode to suss out the perfect quote to sum up each episode and it took five months to complete all the posters.  Here's a link explaining the process and here's a link to all 62 posters.  It's some incredible work!  The image at the top of this post is Zsutti's poster for the season five episode "Buried," and as you can see, "X" marks the spot.

In other news, my co-author, Ensley F. Guffey, has been busily putting together his first curated museum exhibit.  No, this one isn't about Breaking Bad - even Bryan Cranston had to move on at some point (seen the Godzilla trailer yet?  It's at the bottom of this post; go check it out!) - instead Ensley's exhibit, Four Color Culture, details how comic books have taken an active role in the political and cultural life of America since the 1930s.  It's going to be a fabulous exhibit and I look forward to hearing his lecture on Sgt. Rock and American memories of World War 2 on March 1.  Join me if you're near Johnson City, TN!  If you can't make the lecture, the exhibit remains on display at the Reece Museum until April 14.

And here's that Godzilla trailer!  In theatres May 16th!
