I recently ordered from them and it eventually arrived fine. It was not a poster though.
They've had snafus with the last two Red Sparrowes vinyl releases, and I recall some issues with the Neurosis live cd's when they went on sale.

Not necessarily a dumb question, but not exactly answerable either. Everyone here will likely have a different opinion.

Collecting isnt investing. And if you start to look at it like that, it may become less fun. Sure; some people make a living, or at least a supplemental income, by buying and flipping posters. But, most of us are out here for the fun of it and turning it into an "investment" kind of takes the focus off of the hobby and the art, and puts it on the return.

If you want to buy two, buy two. I buy two of lots of things. Some I sell; most I hold on to. But usually the last thing on my mind is whether or not it'll be a good investment. Usually, in the case of Horkey, whats going through my mind is the fact that I need an extra large portfolio for his stuff, because Im tired of storing them under the bed because its the only place big and out of the way enough to flatten these monstrous posters!

Flip if you want to flip, but if you flop, are you going to look at your archival copy and think: "well, I sure lost my ass on that one, pfffft..." or will you think "well, it actually cost me about 25% more than it should have, but I still love it!?"

It could be a good idea to have a spare one of these to trade if you miss out on the Burlesque edition. The bands run was 250 so I imagine BRLSQ will have like 130-180 in their run...and I'm sure they will go fast. This print has gotten a lot of attention across all of the poster sites.

The only one that comes to mind in the slightest is gigposters.com. But it's not geared towards collectors really - or the collection aspect of it anyway. Same worlds, but different focuses.

If you're into Phish, check out PHishposters.com. Also not a bad place to check out if you're not into Phish, but that is the focus.

My first Horkey!

Can't wait to see the flames on this one. Hopefully I can get the Burlesque edition and find someone willing to trade me it for their Mogwai Chicago 06 Burlesque.

Yeah, I sent them an email about the paypal thing this morning...hopefully they can have that fixed up. Christmas time has put too big of a dent on my credit card...

Anyone know what the deal with the shipping is?

I ordered yesterday and my order went through ok and i got confirmation but it never added a shipping charge. Are they still counting those orders?
