IMAX Poster for Deadpool 2 Goes Chibi With the X-Force
The marketing behind Deadpool 2 has been nothing but brilliant, but the new IMAX poster for the sequel may just be the best promotion yet. I of course have a bit of a bias for the art style it employs, which is best described as “Chibi”. The Chibi style features large heads on smaller bodies, and is what made me first become addicted to collectibles like bobbleheads and Funko Pops. I just love the disproportionate look that it provides, and as you can see in the poster above it works quite well for any franchise or medium. Hell, I would buy a line of collectibles based on this poster and how the characters are styled, they just look cute as all hell.
Oh well, if you like the Chibi art form you’ll dig this poster, so take it all in above.
