I don't understand where the bottom half of Godzilla is. Very happy to have skipped this.

Obviously to each his own and like I wrote earlier, I love Durieux's work in general (especially the Hitchcock and Universal Monster stuff) but did we really need another Godzilla print?

Maybe I'm looking at it wrong, but to me it seems there is no bottom half, and there is not supposed to be one, since it's just a part of the mushroom cloud that takes the shape and form of Godzilla ('s upper body). It's not like the image is trying to convey that Godzilla is actually standing within said mushroom cloud, but quite to the contrary, a metaphor for the horror and nightmare that is nuclear warfare and radiation ... as it gave birth to Godzilla. It's not the most subtle of metaphors I think, but still, I really do like it. The worst I can say is that there could be more detail in it, esp. one the right hand background shore. I'm glad I went for the reg, and I'm definitely going to keep it. I like it way better than the recent Mondo one, actually it's probably the best Godzilla one I've seen yet, although I really liked Laurie Greasley's take on it:

Btw, the Phantom City Creative one from I think last November had a similar motif for example. Anyways, I'm really not getting the "hate", but everyone is entitled to his view and taste :-D

I like LD's work but this isnt doing much for me - glad I resisted the urge to buy a print I was on the fence about in the sale

Really like this take on Godzilla but I think its time to retire the subject matter.

Yep, I bet that water detail is gonna be wet & wild
I'd assume silver metallics on the variant, too.
LD confirmed metallics on the variant on Facebook

There are not really that many Godzilla posters. Yes there were like 4 that came out this year, but there were only like 1 or 2 others from big name artists before that. And there are 30(!) Godzilla movies so the well for material isn't exactly dry. I'd like to see some more monsters represented from other movies.

Foils tomorrow, if they are anything like the way the "Its a wonderful life" foils turned out, we could be pleasantly surprised.

Though it's growing on me each time I look at it I'm not a lover of this print at all, overall dissapointed and I'll probably move this on with a ton and other people as I missed the deadline for refunds. Too many Godzilla prints and with Laurant's love or European cinema was hoping for something a bit more original- title wise.

I'm also growing a bit tired of these very similar colour hues he is using recently. If he would more contrasting vibrant colour to it I think I would have liked it a lot more.
