I am so excited for a chance to get that Wizard of Oz print. Is it really GID? Is there any other info on it? (run size, dimensions, etc.)

The Bottleneck Gallery show thread said that it's 24"x34" (non-standard) and is GID.
No mention of edition size that I saw.

Variant is GID, not regular

Great news on your growing collection of Durieux prints.

Just got my UM prints in from Mondo today...
All I can say is :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:
Dracula and Frank are just astounding.
I ended up liking the Mummy print more than I expected, however, while Wolfman is very nice, something about the composition of the piece just doesn't do it for me.
Still.. all in all I'm ever-impressed by Mr. Durieux.
Does anyone know if he has his own site where he blogs or twitter feed or anything where he communicates with his fans?
Can't wait to try for the CB drop tomorrow! Good luck to all who are going for it!
