Tyler Stout's "Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair" Posters

I wouldn't be doing my poster nerd duties if I didn't tell you about Tyler Stout's insane Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair posters, now would I? In honor of the recently premiered (in the US at least) and restored Quentin Tarantino revenge epic, Tyler Stout, a giant in the poster world, has created yet another one of his exquisitely detailed masterpieces. This one is sure to sell out within seconds.

Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair - Regular Edition

Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair - Variant Edition (in Japanese on "Rice Paper")

The yellow, gold and red inks work perfectly here, because not only does it immediately convey the film's retro Asian aesthetic, but they make the image explode visually, like your eyes are seeing different levels of heat (yellow, red and white). I've also got to give it up to Mondo for creating a variant that is unique and actually serves a purpose, instead of just changing the inks. I'd be very interested to feel the difference between their usual poster stock and the "rice paper" poster stock of the variant. Did I mention how awesome it is that they changed all of the English to Japanese? I think I can honestly say this is one of their finest variants ever.

These amazing, insane, gorgeous posters will go on sale at a random time tomorrow (4/5) through Mondo's site. As usual, if you want to receive a heads up on the drop, be sure to follow @MondoNews for all the release info. The 24" x 36" Tyler Stout Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair poster comes in two editions, a regular and a variant. The regular Kill Bill poster is out of an edition of 600 and costs $50, while the variant is limited to an edition of 225 and costs $100. If you miss out on tomorrow's Mondo release, I highly recommend heading over to Tyler's site, where you can sign up for his mailing list and be informed about any potential sales through his store down the road. Let's be honest, even if you DO get a poster tomorrow, you should probably still visit his page just to gawk at the incredible artwork. 'Nuff said. Good luck and good night!
