Brad, I don't think the criticism is geared toward you. it's pretty simple; people who spent a ton of cash on prints don't like reprints............but, that's not your problem. As time goes by, people forgive and forget..............look at Kozik's NIN or PJ print. No one seems to complain about the art prints generated years later from those classic prints. Granted Kozik didn't make a habit out of the practice. Just brush off the criticism and keep doing what you're doing...............let the artists deal w/ their own decisions.

all that said, I think the puzzles and the other merch you've produced have been nothing but great ideas.

As owner of both the BTS and Tool posters I'll say that I don't really care that these images are being reprinted. At first I did. I believe the gig posters are where it's at and I would enjoy a puzzle of both images so I'll go for those. I will probably stay away from the art prints since they are inferior to the gig poster in my opinion. I also believe that any criticism of these prints pointed towards Brad is misdirected. Obviously, Emek is on board with these prints so if you have a problem with this you should probably be pissed at him. After all, he controls the image rights and can do whatever he wants with them. If it weren't for these kind of sales I would never have obtained a version of the MARSians and Peacock prints.

I don't own the original Emek prints so I'll be happy if I'm lucky enough to get a puzzle. I think puzzles are a great idea!

I can't do jigsaw puzzles to save my life. I hate them.
Can you publish some Emek crosswords? I would destroy a Thursday NYT Emek Crossword.

Forgive me for not reading an entire thread, but does anyone else think that these really aren't as good with the loss of all the negative space? I really thought that added a lot to the impact of the cyberman, given his expression.
