The Great Showdowns is a hardcover book from artist Scott Campbell, gathering the best pieces from the incredible series on his very popular Tumblr. Campbell also has a piece in the Mondo Universal Monsters show. The book chronicles some of the best, weirdest and grandest movie showdowns ever, and it looks entirely wonderful. Here's a synopsis and quotes from some very cool people about the book:
Han vs the green fellow. Chief Brody vs the very large shark. John McClane vs broken glass, and many, many more... Scott Campbell’s acclaimed Great Showdowns series, showing strangely good- natured confrontations between his favorite movie characters, finally gets the book collection fans have been demanding!
Whether it’s Ripley vs the Alien Queen or Spinal Tap vs an undersized model of Stonehenge, these memorable moments of melee deserve to be celebrated. Behold, The Great Showdowns.
With a Foreword by Neil Patrick Harris.
