Reckon LD handed over his design way back. He has no further control or obligation on these.

I'm more surprised at the poster blog sites promoting it when most know the history.
What happened? All I can remember was a lot of people didn't receive their Part 2 print for months/a year.
Find the Odd City timeline in the OCE II thread (it's worth the read). Basic gist is that it went well beyond shipping delays. OCE has a history of not paying printers/artists and not shipping posters. Some posters were over a year late and others never materialized at all. Roman would openly confront people on various forums and was generally a mess. Terrible business and it's amazing that other sites are promoting tomorrow's drop.

I was amused by how Nerdlocker tweeted Daniel Danger that they knew more than anyone about how bad OCE was. Seemed pretty snidely.

They support artists, Daniel. Not the ones who got screwed over as well, but still.

Think they're the only outlet that's promoted it though? Haven't seen others participate...

Seems LD is working on/already printing a Graduate print. Anyone know who it's for? And what happened to The Conversation?
