Steve Purcell conjures up a new Monkey Island poster 16 May, 2019 / 6 comments

Look, I don't know what this is all about. el "LucasTones" Tee came running in, screaming about a new Monkey Island poster by Steve Purcell, and that it's for sale right here. That page turned out to be in French, so I'm out beyond that.

elTee mumbled something about some French book about the making of The Secret of Monkey Island, and that's where the painting is from, but, really, who cares? You can get a poster by Steve Purcell, and that's more than you deserve. Run and spend €40, cold, hard, cash right now.

Update! Doug "Mojo 9" Tabacco brings word of an English language ordering page.

    How did I miss this? This is GORGEOUS... and also 100 times better than the artwork Purcell did for TOMI. Lovely stuff.

    Hot take.


    As a loyal Mojo reader for almost two decades, I've earned the right to be provocative.

    This art style for Monkey Island is unbeatable.
    I wish things took that visual direction instead of the exaggerated CMI style, which is gorgeous but totally misses the dark/creepy side of MI2.
    Random rant.

    No, what? What's this about a book?
