Indeed. No prior Stout print made my jaw drop like the variant. The Lost Boys and The Thing were close, but the Akira variant is pretty special. Plus, the wife loves it (print and movie) so that's a plus. :P

I own the reg. After I had it framed, I gave it to my brother for his birthday just to hang in his house. It's still mine, but just not at my place.
I miss it.

Wow, this print looks awesome, too bad I'd likely never own it unless I win the lottery. :oops:

In reference to the print appearing without letters:

If you look closely, there's a haze around the sign that appears to show the red layer there, just not very visible.
This is a very good explanation,and i certainly wouldn't dream of arguing with Billy as he knows his fudge.

I do kinda like the idea that there could be extra-special 'perfect' variants out there though. :)
But in all likelihood it was a trick of the light that obscured the detail in the shots omitting the lettering....

The sign is definitely there, you can even see it in the pic...just not very well.
