NYCC unveils retro comic poster for Red Tails

Red Tails NYCC

LucasFilm (via ComingSoon.Net) has released another poster for their forthcoming film Red Tails, this time designed specifically for the New York Comic Con. The legendary Joe Kubert has designed the pulp comic influenced one-sheet, and it is incredibly cool.

1944. As the war in Europe continues to take its toll on Allied forces, the Pentagon brass has no recourse but to consider unorthodox options – including the untried and untested African-American pilots of the experimental Tuskegee training program. Just as the young Tuskegee men are on the brink of being shut down and shipped back home, they are given the ultimate chance to show their courage. Against all the odds, with something to prove and everything to lose, these intrepid young airmen take to the skies to fight for their country – and the fate of the free world.

Red Tails is released on 20 January 2012 in the US. It does not currently have an Australian release date.
