Well done by Florey & GMA Team, definitely one of the best for this property.

lol, surprised I'm still seeing stuff like this. It's such an unproven assertion. Folks like Bottleneck and a number of other places have been doing quite well. It's not just a one house show. If something doesn't sell, it doesn't sell on its own merit. You can't point at the publisher and say "well if this other guy released, boom to the moon!". It's just not like that anymore.
So it goes...

Best work by Florey IMO. A really cool poster. I agree with mfaith here too. Sounds like it sold out pretty quickly, which says a LOT about the art when there's so much Guardians art out there for people to choose from, and more coming once the sequel comes. Great job by Florey, great job by Grey Matter.

Eh, I don't completely disagree, but I wouldn't diminish the Mondo effect that much. It's a bit hard to read just because I feel like the hobby, and the enthusiasts within the hobby, has a pretty good awareness of all the other places out there, but it's hard to measure the group of casual fans who may only think about the limited edition poster world based on the biggest name out there.

Anyway, congrats on the sellout to GMA, pretty quick between this and the previous Ferguson Spider-Man.

I think people also forget about the fact that mondo had to build an audience over a period of many years. Grey Matter is on their way.

Congrats guys. Solid Guardians poster.

Yup. All those now $1k grails that (supposedly, I wasn't paying attention) sat in the store for hours/days.

You mean a business can be successful without selling out of their product in seconds?

Thanks so much! It was a very crazy sale today but thank you everyone
For the kind words. Florey worked very hard on this poster and it really shows.
And yeah, the printing by DL was just insanely well done. Had to print this one with them.

Congrats on the sellout. I might have missed this, but other than the colorways, are there any other differences between the reg and variant? Are there metallics on either?
