Yuko Shimizu takes on Takashi Miike’s 13 Assassins

From Yuko Shimizu's "13 Assassins" poster

Cinematical has premiered a gorgeous poster for Takashi Miike’s samurai film 13 assassins created by none other than Yuko Shimizu, perhaps best known to comic-book fans as the cover artist for Mike Carey and Peter Gross’ acclaimed Vertigo series The Unwritten. Outside of comics, Shimizu is a much-in-demand illustrator, working for such varied clients as Microsoft, The New York Times, The Gap, VISA, The New Yorker and MTV.

Check out the full poster after the break, or visit Cinematical to see a larger version. Miike’s 13 Assassins opens on April 29.



I am cheesing on everything about this.

Like I already wasn’t excited enough for this movie?

13 ASSASSINS will be playing NYC this week as part of a massive Miike retrospective that opens this weekend. The man himself was going to be here, but just canceled due to the giant earthquake that just rocked Japan:

does anyone know if its true that she’s missing after the tsunami?
