Great! Italian art posters!!!! Sandro Simeoni was one of these artists...

Okay, that's weird. The poster for This Island Earth has the alien wearing one of the invaders' space suits from Earth vs. the Flying Saucers.

Thanks for commenting Maurizio. I'm unfamiliar with that artist but if you'd care to expand up him I'm all ears.

Scott -- Yeah, that is weird, and the Flying Saucers in the right poster appear to be nuking London, not Washington DC. I also left out a completely nonsensical poster for "The Thing" that depicted an orbital space-battle between rival squadrons of spaceships.
