Was one of those bootleg Spidermans that looked like a luchador and showed my excuse for a bulge.

Do we know pricing for these yet?!? Friday is going to be a fudge show.
so itll be an edition of 125 foil @45 and a regular paper edition of 30 @ 45.
Is this right? Unless I'm reading this wrong, this suprises me. I assumed that the foil would be more limited and cost more. I'm not complaining, just curious.

nope not reading it wrong. Print was meant to be a foil print. The regular edition is basically for the "FOIL IS AN ABOMINATION. GO BACK TO HELL" crowd that seems to pop up from time to time. Not to be confused with the "DOWN WITH GLOW" crowd.

Wow. I guess I should really be surprised. Once again, Acidfree is putting the customer first and giving the people what they want. :clap:

Somehow just hearing about this Akira print now...are the pictures shown here the final ones? There is no title block or anything? Always wanted something related to Akira on my wall, and since I probably won't be able to afford the Stout one I am thinking of going for this...kinda hoped it would have a Title block on it though for some reason.

The pics are the final version - Chris wanted to go for a pure Art Print aesthetic rather than a Movie poster, and for both him and the gallery it's safer to air on the side of caution when it comes to sticking a Title block on a piece of fan art.
Personally, I prefer this piece without Titles, as it gives the artwork more room to breathe and the close resemblance to Otomo's visual style looks much nicer to me without a huge logo or text.

There's plenty of nice little references and the famous katakana logo dotted around as graffiti, though, which I think works better and makes it feel like a cel.

The title block on Stout is ok.....but such a small addition as to make very little overall difference.

For me, if I want a title block badly then I'd go for the original 1-sheet - or you could go for SilenceTV's piece, which has some of what you're after (and only costs two or three hundred dollars)

Good luck at the drop!

Check back a page or two for a video of the foil effect - i think you'll love the piece even more and feel less disappointed about the lack of credits. It's stunning.

Edit: here's the link to the video of the foil, to save you time backtracking through the thread. :cheers:
