The LD is the first LD I bought and I love it, but the Ansin is probably the better poster. The LD is probably my favorite LD poster though.

The S&V is great composition and text, but the one arm reaching out bugs me for some reason - proportions seem off.

Overall, this was a pretty amazing show - wish I could have made it in person to see those b&w velvet portraits.

Francavilla's UM series to date are floating my boat.

Absolutely love his prior releases, the 'This Island Earth' print is outrageously gorgeous in it composition and color.

Both these new prints have that wonderful garish pulp vibe going on as well.

^^^His This Island Earth doesn't seem to get much love, but I freaked when I first saw it. Been on the wall since I got it.

Yup, had it up for months. I like KT's too but it's almost too refined.

The looseness of FF's compositions has that pulp comic book feel which works well for this series.

the Dracula embraces that fully - looks like it came right off a 30s Pulp mag cover.

Somebody beat me to Island Earth, but I got Frankenstein in there too. So both should be sorted.

Yah his Invisible Man is one of my favorites. Not to mention Creature is still the GOAT UM.

Since you didn't specify which one, I'm just going to assume you meant Jes Seamans': They look great! I personally prefer the variant over the regular; the additional contrast gives it a bit more depth, but you can't go wrong with either. :)

The preceding posts were about Francavilla. Safe to assume he meant “his”. ;)
