WIIW civil defense poster: Help Defend Australia – Put the Martians out to Pasture

Check out this beautiful WIIW (War Two of the Worlds) Australian civil defense poster created by American artist Tom Kidd, who has worked for a number of publishers (Baen Books, Random House, DAW Books, Warner Books, Ballantine Books, Marvel Comics, Tor Books) and companies (Disney, American Express) and whose impressive art has won him a World Fantasy Award (Best Artist 2004) and seven Association of Science Fiction & Fantasy Artists' Chesley Awards!

For more hip tripod artwork by Tom Kidd, take a look at some sketches and paintings posted on his blog, Kiddography, that he did for the cover and interior of a thick 2001 HarperCollins illustrated edition of H.G. Wells’s classic novel, The War of the Worlds.

Thanks, Tom!
