After being shelved (so to speak) since mid-1968, the "I Can Read Movies" series from Spacesick Books returns with an all-new face! Surprising indeed, considering the high profile string of its parent company's failed investments since then- including an old west-themed children's fun park in Cuba, the Erotic Tap Dancing Correspondence School of Chicago, and the much-publicized "The Illustrated Devil's Rejects" fiasco. And say what you will about cover designer Mitch Ansara's "unfriendly parting" with Walt Disney Productions... because he's back in true form as well! Perfect for kids from eight to eighty, these pocket sized adventures are just as fun and exciting as they ever were! Just take a word from this critic, and don't forget to bring the popcorn.

Well wasn't that fun? I have to confess, I Netflixed Blade Runner a few nights ago and I've been HURTIN to make a cover of it this whole time. :( I guess that break didn't last long. Whoops! Anyway, I'd love to hear what you think about this new cover style! My friend gave me a fresh set of eyes and helped me streamline the amount of typefaces I used. I THINK I found a happy outcome, but I'm always open to crits and ways to make things better! :D
