JACK DAVIS’ BLAXPLOITATION MOVIE POSTERS (1973-1978) - The ART OF BLAXPLOITATION (Part 4)

As shown in Part 1, 6 and 10, Blaxploitation movie posters very often relied on the contribution of legendary movie poster designers.

Jack Davis, one of America’s premier illustrator (EC Comics) and adman, designed nearly over 40 movie posters including the following 3 hard to find posters below with his inimitable trademark “comic cavalcade” style

Five On The Black Hand Side (1973)

The Class Of Miss MacMichael (1978)

Train Ride To Hollywood (1975), an oddity featuring mid 70’s soul music band Bloodstone!

In June 2014 all our Blaxploitation movie posters are On SALE
