probably belongs in the Odd City thread... the quote is bad. the variant is in italian while GF 1's variant is not.

The actual art is very good (as per usual), but if Odd City was going to abandon the "color swap variant" for the second print, they should have just gotten rid of the quote as well. Just my 2 cents.

Maybe I don't know what you mean when you say "color swap," but those two images are not the same colors. It's subtle, but they are different.

I can see the fuuuuuuuutuuuuuuuuure! :P

I figured people would home in on the quote not being exact. That's why it's better to predict in generalities. You get too specific and it all starts to fall apart.

Sorry for distrupting the flow of the Godfather talk, but I really think a Mighty Atom (Astro Boy) print needs to happen. It's a retro-futuristic match made in printing heaven for Laurent. :notworthy:
Bound by the variable, Hedron.

"Shelve project...hahahah!"

What does that mean?? A project he started and had to shelve? An alternate start to his BTTF posters from last year? What is it?! Why can't we have it!?

I think the set is amazing as is but that looks like it might have actually turned out better than what he went with.

Part II is perfection and I guess that locked him into a composition for the bookends...
