Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead is not messing around, as I learned during New York Comic Con this fall and as you may have learned when you saw the teaser trailer. But one look at the new poster (released via Yahoo! Movies) proves that these guys really mean business. They might also be putting their asses on the line with a pretty bold claim. After the jump, see the whole poster and judge for yourself: ballsy or brash?

Tavis sez, "A mind-blowingly recursive poster that represents the AD&D rules for procedural dungeon generation as a flowchart which is drawn as a dungeon. From the The Mule Abides blog at NYC's intersection between role-playing games, the gallery art scene, and how Kickstarter can jam 'em together. Cory's linked the Mule before as HOWTO have a D&D party for 8-year-olds; also featured in this post is a nifty Kickstarter for the first publication from the Play-Generated Map and Documents Archive, similarly linked for Homemade D&D module, 1981."

Lalo Alcaraz, the artist and Uppity Mexican-American commentator who created the totally dope new "Occupy"/"Anonymous" poster above, is at laloalcaraz.com and pocho.com. I asked Lalo for info on how those interested can obtain prints, and he tells Boing Boing:
They should check in at laloalcaraz.com to see which signed prints are currently available, and especially should look for my 2012 Lalo Alcaraz Cartoon Calendar coming very soon (after all the Muerto Madness) and follow my silly ass at @laloalcaraz.
There are a lot of Fairey remixes around, but this Admiral Ackbar/Star Wars TRAP poster's pretty nicely executed.

From How to Be a Retronaut, a fine gallery of scanned syphilis/gonorreah posters from the last days of each disease's reign of terror, before widespread use of antibiotics. If you're ever in Philadelphia and want to get a sense of how scary syphilis must have been in its day, head on over to the Mutter Museum
, an exhibit of pathological curiosities, and have a gander at the cases of syphilitic skulls. I still get nightmares.
