Love Tom’s Batman print - think that’s his strongest non-Disney image this year.

Can't decide if I like the reg or variant more . . . metallics in the variant make it tempting.

I think the red works really well for a lot of the characters e.g. Harley red/black contrast + poison ivy's hair

Overall the image is really strong and super clean. I imagine Tom has the cleanest, most organized workstation of all time

Love it. But Freeze's helmet is bugging me a bit.

I dig them Whalens, good pairing of property/artist. Any known timeline on when the Thornley "Blade Runner" ships?

Just a general question, is shipping a little behind?
Or maybe it's just a specific print I ordered?

The dark blue is so Batman but the red works better for every other character. This is definitely the hardest choice I’ve had between a variant and reg.

Really, the only characters the blue works on is Batman and Mr. Freeze
