Artist Kevin M. Wilson (who goes by “Ape Meets Girl”) was the artist behind this new poster, which was released by the Hero Complex Gallery at New York Comic Con this past month. The print has, unfortunately, sold out, but that can’t stop you from enjoying all of the amazing secrets and references the poster contains.
The poster depicts a scene from Gremlins that takes place early in the film when Randall Peltzer stumbles upon his beloved mogwai Gizmo in a mysterious antique shop.
There are 84 different references hidden in the poster. How many can you find?
Just on the back shelves alone we can spot Bubo from the original Clash Of The Titans, the Glaive from Krull, the painting of Vigo the Carpathian from Ghostbusters II (over to the left), Wilson the volleyball from Cast Away, He-Man’s sword, the Rocketeer’s jetpack, Loki’s mask from The Mask, the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis from the Evil Dead films, and Freddy Krueger’s famed clawed-glove from the Nightmare On Elm Street series, as well as so many others.
What sets Wilson’s poster apart is just how many times you can go back and spot something new. But, just in case you wanted to know all 84 references, Wilson posted a key to the whole piece on his Facebook page so you can double check just how many you spotted, but try for yourself first. No cheating!
The 36″ x 24″ prints are limited to 400 and can be purchased through Hero Complex Gallery.
