Everyone's favourite drug lords immortalised in ink.

Everyone's favourite drug lords immortalised in ink.

We were somewhere around Albuquerque…

Drugs, deserts, adventure and destruction. Breaking Bad has always had something of the Hunter S. Thompson about it. Now, the similarities are being immortalised in a set of illustrations by Fear and Loathing artist Ralph Steadman, commissioned by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan.

The illustrations grace the covers of a limited-edition Blu-ray release of the series, sold exclusively on Zavvi.com, and see the characters come to life with key elements derived from their plot lines – drug lord Gus Fring has an inky eye, alluding to his grisly fate, and hit man Mike Ehrmantraut carries a spade like the grim reaper.

Here’s hoping True Detective is next.
