Orson Welles' War Of The Worlds & The Broadcast

Orson Welles' War of the Worlds
(click on the above image for a larger view)

Hello Pulp Friends,

A couple of years ago I was commissioned to do a cover for a GN, THE BROADCAST, written & drawn by the talented Eric Hobbs and Noel Tuazon. This GN is finally gonna be out in stores this August so I can reveal the cover art (below).

Since the cover was done some time ago, I thought to draw something just for this Pulp Sunday post, and the result is the above illustration (which I hope you'll dig).
Also, since it has been awhile from the last "old radio" post, here's the link to the actual Orson Welles' War of the Worlds broadcast (mp3)


What's THE BROADCAST about?
A rural Indiana town loses power halfway through Orson Welles’ WAR OF THE WORLDS broadcast having never learned the infamous radio play is a hoax. Now, fearing the worst is upon them, four diverse families band together in an effort to make it through the night. But tensions build as differences surface, and it isn’t long before everyone involved begins to realize they have as much to fear from each other as they do the “alien invasion” heading their way.
The book is 180 pages and costs only $13.99. Pre-order code is: JUN10 1062

Enjoy and have a wonderful Pulp Sunday everyone :)

Cheers,
Francesco

The Broadcast GN

Both of these are fabulous, but I think the color piece is my "fave".

Uncle Orson would be proud!
