To each his/her own...I guess.

I'm not a huge custom cover art guy, but occasionally there will be cover art created by a fan that just somehow captures the film's essence far better than the stock art, and even more rarely I'll bother to print it out and use it. Mostly I use the custom art when I use regular cases in place of the deluxe box set packaging that can be annoying or damaging to the disks (BSG anyone?).
But I know a lot of graphic artists, and they love
to create custom art for almost anything - that is the target "market" for these things. It is inspiring to their hobby.
Oh, and on topic: I don't think I'll pre-order Mad Max because it will probably be on sale before Christmas and I have a huge backlog of stuff to watch, but I'll certainly get it eventually. Glad to read that it looks nice and not DNRed to death.
