Encyclopedia Bombastica: Spine #21-30

Inspired by the Criterion Collection.

I've had these designs laying around for quite some time, and I've finally decided to post them here. Sadly, these will probably be the last ones I will make, for many reasons. Now only I've started attending film studies at the Université de Montréal, my graphic designs skills have always been painfully limited. You may not have noticed, but the vast majority of my covers are either taken from in-game screenshots, official artwork, or fan art done by other artists. I can't draw for shit; I might have creativity, I don't have any execution. I will give credit where credit is due.
