Clowes’ Death Ray makes a cameo on Paul movie poster


The movie Paul stars Shawn of the Dead alumni Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as two British comic fans who run into a real-life alien on the way to Comic Con (Jonah Weiland spoke with them about Paul on the CBR boat during the real San Diego Comic Con this past summer).

The movie poster for the UK was recently released, and it features the two stars and their alien friend … with Pegg sporting an Eightball shirt with Daniel Clowes’ popular Death Ray character. Unfortunately, according to Fantagraphics, the shirt isn’t available to purchase, but maybe if the movie is a hit or when the Death Ray project Clowes hinted at during his APE panel comes out, we’ll see them on the rack.

OK, this should be awesome… Shawn of the Dead and Hot Fuzz are two damned funny movies.

The only thing that upsets me about Paul is that I feel like, had I put my mind to it, I could’ve come up with this idea and written it.

Then again, Pegg and Frost’s version is bound to be more funny than mine would’ve been..
