What’s inside these? Keep reading …
If you’re a certain age, you may remember Little Golden Books, which are beginning readers’ first licks at the literary world.
They’ve been around since the 1940s — and are still around today — but one illustrator has created a new take on these stories with a series of prints and a book that collects his past works all in one.
His name is Joey Spiotto and the Los Angeles-based artist is big on Storytime.

Three iconic characters of a perfectly profane classic are coming to a comic shop near you.
Pulp Fiction stars Jules Winnfield, Butch Coolidge and Marsellus Wallace will arrive this September via Diamond Select Toys and they were revealed this week for collectors to begin ordering.
Ballpark foods on baseball cards are fun (and coming soon from Topps), but Fictional Foods can be pretty cool, too.
That’s the name of a couple collections from Baltimore-based artist Joshua Budich that can be found via Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles.
Some of the prints are sold out — sadly, his tribute to Pulp Fiction‘s Big Kahuna Burger is already among those — but other prints can still be nabbed by collectors and they’re worth a look.
If you’re like Buzz, you’ve probably seen Funko‘s ReAction figures in chain stores and marveled at some of the quirky inclusions in the various lines.
It’s an ongoing series of 3.75-inch figures in a distinct style reminiscent of Kenner‘s original Star Wars toys right down to the line’s logo and the clamshell packaging.
The difference, though?
The Upper Deck Gallery‘s latest offering includes some of the most-iconic characters in recent film history as part of a montage print for a film that would carry the same gravitas.
The film is Pulp Fiction and a pair of prints by artist Dave Perillo are the latest creation from the company in a series of pieces featuring past films and comic book characters.
“I was super excited for the opportunity to work on this project for the Upper Deck Gallery, especially since Pulp Fiction is one of my all-time favorite movies,” Perillo said. “It is such a fantastic story filled with so many unique characters. I love how the movie has a retro quality to it without really specifying when it takes place. My goal was to translate that into the print, hopefully doing it justice.”
Upper Deck Authenticated has added a new chapter in its ongoing line of comic book and movie gallery prints that showcase memorable stories and characters on a monthly basis.
Gangs of New York joins The Crow among the movie properties to appear on the prints, which are printed on premium paper and are individually hand numbered and also have variants. They are sold via the Upper Deck Store online. Among the Marvel Comics characters to have prints so far are Wolverine, Daredevil and The Avengers.
