thats the craziest oreo comment sandwich ive ever seen haha.

Are you saying they don't? Because it sure looks like each panel represents an episode to me.

very good question He actually tried both and he prefered the sabers to be like that. He didnt like that it was just a portion of the tip.

That sounds quite dirty actually
I think the sabers should have crossed over the border lines. That Darth and Luke are kind of the foreground of the whole piece, and it's a nice balance of composition. Would make more sense to me to have the lightsabers all there. But if Gabz tried both versions and liked this one better, I'm probably wrong.
he went through both. He just didnt like it. It was a topic.

I also want to thank Germain Lussier for catching something no one else saw which we fixed just in time.

The only characters that look to be full b/w to me are the ones at the top of each panel; Obi-Wan, Vader, and the Emperor.
Yes, you're right. I guess it's that the green is so much different from the other colors throughout the poster, it looks like more of a highlight on the characters that have it. I like the variant color scheme a little better, partly for that reason.

yea each panel represents an episode for the most part.
Just curious why there is no movie block.
its one print representing all episodes. Not really needed but we can't do billing blocks anyway

From an outside perspective (not being a big Star Wars fan), I really like the variant colorways. Nice looking print all around!

Now that I look at it more it's correct. Had to think more about it. So where is the foil edition? :notworthy:

Where's the die-cut chromium pop-up edition?
Oh, sorry I thought we were talking about 90s comic books.

Do both use metallic inks? Any other differences that can't be discerned form looking at these jpegs?
