Lurked on this site for better part of a year before I signed up mid 2011...and the art listed in Print/Poster of the year was a great way for me to get hip to what was released in any given year. Definitely put me on to art/artists I didn't know about. As a resource, it was up there with pricing history and ISO/Trade listings.

The fact Esao's Community Zoo is no where to be seen on the Print list, when in fact it should be tied with Civ II for Print of Year '22, not the "art print version" of the 3rd place Cinema poster is a damn shame.

Or is it because it came out so late in the year? When Esao dropped Cloisters at the end of 2015 we lost our minds and it won APOTY expeditiously.

My solution?
More Esao, less double ups with gig/movie.

Remember the year Horkey won cinemaPOTY for a Lohdada Ringz that wasn’t printed until the next year? I do! That one was a hot mess, too. Crazy illustration of course, but…

Love for the Hork had gone global at the time.

I'd hazard to guess that Esao's greatest hits print was omitted because it was never nominated for poster of the week. Think someone mentioned previously that that's a prerequisite.
Wanda: I can't stand people. I hate them. Do you hate them?
Henry: No, but I seem to feel better when they're not around.

That was 2014?

2013 Horkey ran the table, but also pulled the Art pint win/Gig print win for the same poster, although there was a slight variation.
Won movie with There Will Be Blood, which of course was a given that year.

Oh damn it was my fault. I usually try to tire pump my faves. Sorry Esao

Community Zoo wasn't on the list because it was never nominated. we don't choose the list, the community does over the full year. winners of the weekly award nominations make it on the final list. it's all automatic.

and i agree gig/movie poster double ups suck and is unfair and there is an internal chat on how to move forward with that.
