Archer DVD Art Mimicks Bond
A few weeks ago Fox announced Archer: The Complete Season One on DVD (along with a host of cool special features), and I expressed hope that they would use the promotional art inspired by Robert McGinniss' Live and Let Die poster for the cover. Good news: they did! TVShowsOnDVD posted the image yesterday. How awesome is that? It really nails what I love about this show: crisp, striking animation and design that draws from 007 in the Sixties through the Eighties. The half-hour animated comedy takes place more or less today, but in a world of perpetual Cold War, allowing the creative team to pick and choose their favorite design elements, costumes and vehicles from various eras. Be warned, though: as pretty as this FX show is to look at, it's an extremely raunchy comedy and definitely not to all tastes. Personally, though, I love it.
