We just built this 50 Shades of Grey movie poster parody, and posted it to the Martian Migraine Press Facebook page. Guessing it went to the Twitter, too. Well, dropping it here on the MMP site minutes later, just in case it blows up, meme-wise. You saw it here first. We did this, the quality weirdos at MMP. For the record. And as far as we’re able to tell, we were first. So there. #50ShadesOfRlyeh #CthulhuWillSeeYouNow #StillABetterLoveStoryThan50ShadesOfGrey
Nick Gucker, as has been mentioned before here and elsewhere, is the 21st Century Lee Brown Coye, a Weird illustrator of the first water, so you know we here at MMP HQ were seven kinds of excited to commission from him the cover art for our upcoming anthology, RESONATOR: New Lovecraftian Tales From Beyond. Mr Gucker was also a complete pleasure to work with and watching his creative process was a real privilege. The piece he created is called Primal Spermatozoa Oblongata Enlightenment … sure, it’s a mouthful, but if your pineal gland is sufficiently stimulated, you shouldn’t have too much trouble with it.
But hey, you didn’t click on the FRONT COVER REVEAL tease link to hear us go on about the sordid backroom dealings of micro-publishing. You came for a cover. And here it is…
Want to WIN a high-quality SIGNED PRINT of Nick Gucker’s ORIGINAL ART for RESONATOR ? Head on over to the PRE-ORDER PAGE for the anthology: the FIRST 40 READERS to pre-order the paperback edition will have a ONE-IN-TEN CHANCE to win a print, more than suitable for framing.
Martian Migraine Press: the Best Kind of Headache!
We’ve been quiet lately. We know. Periods of stillness are necessary for the germination of… things. Or so we are told. Anyway, expect some large-ish announcements over the next few weeks. Book and magazine releases, contests, other nifty stuff.
In the meantime, check out our sly new MMP mascot, drawn by the talented Michael Lee Macdonald aka Alchemichael…
