I REALLY dig it, probably more than 'Woodstocks Song of Love'. But thats not too surprising though, is it?

Peanuts? Check. Spusta? Check. Little weird? Check.
I certainly share ol' Chucks love of sports, as well as his talent/skill for playing.

Hoping I can score that Infield Green.

It's not for me, but I kind of admire the weirdness.

That "pow" panel is still one of my favorites though.
We think Marq reached to that Schulz imagery for a single stand alone print precisely because its surreal nature and strength speaks to something more broadly, with everyone being Charlie Brown on that mound at some point in life and our reaction to it, not solely the fun gags as you can imagine, since it's Schulz but also filtered via Marq's perception as artist as well so informs his choices.

Thanks on the input JK, DHM

No worries. I didn't interpret that panel as surreal myself, just as part of a sequential build for the comic. But I respect that Marq found surrealness in that particular panel and is creating a single image to display the strangeness of freezing that panel. It's pretty fascinating to see his perspective latch onto it, and at the very least it's always nice to get some insight on the thinking - I may not agree, but I appreciate the perspective.

It reminds me of odd simpsons frames taken out of context.

This is my favorite.

Exactly, spot on JK! :clap: Image of Marq, his original concept drawing and a development image.

Sorry, just catching up here. Has the exact time of the drop on the 14th been established? (Saw it's the 14th on Marq's FB page)

Thanks...

Laurent Durieux signing for DHM in Belgium. "To Catch a Thief" editions have been shipped by his printer and en route to LA. Here you see paper and canvas editions plus an earlier image from his printer on one of the foils. On arrival our Customs broker will clear per usual with all prints driven up to Paragon Press for client fulfillment. Tracking numbers provided by Paragon as editions ship out to buyers.

Thanks to all for your courtesy, DHM

I know I've said it before but DAMN I wish that Yuko Batman Returns variant was less than 100 bucks.
