Tim Anderson pulps Alien, The Matrix, Blade Runner


There’s something about pulp art I really enjoy, whether it’s on Argosy, Black Mask, Amazing Stories, or Weird Tales. It’s lurid, it’s striking, it’s all enticement. A few months ago I saw some Mexican pulp art that was just phenomenally strange in the most awesome of ways.

And so here is Tim Anderon’s pulp art versions of three classic sci-fi movies: Alien, The Matrix, and Blade Runner. Anderson does each as a pulp novel with its own cover, tagline, and publishing company. The results are totally boss. (Yeah, yeah, it’s a bit of a roundabout on Blade Runner, but the film and the PKD book are their own animals. Incidentally, the cover to the hardcover first edition of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? has more in common with Joseph Cornell than Walter Baumhofer.)

To see more of his work and to purchase prints, check out Tim Anderson’s illustration portfolio. He’s also done non-pulp posters for The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly as well as the Star Wars trilogy. Check out the three pulp posters in the gallery.
