The foil on the Man Who Fell to Earth looks stunning.
Are there great pictures of it online anywhere? I haven't seen any online yet and I'm trying to justify the extra cost if I shell out for it.

I can't believe they got the legal rights to use David Bowie's actual blood for these posters.

How so? Just from a busyness perspective?
Yeah, usually Sundays are light, but today seemed busier than any of the past Saturdays I've attended.. some ppl said Hall H cleared out after Supernatural - that might have been part of it.

Never been to SDCC before, but wanted to know what the method/technique was to storing the print right after purchasing it? Bring a tube for sure, but is there even much room to roll it up on the floor right then and there? What are some of your guys’ experiences?

I heard you can't roll it right where you buy. Take it else where to roll, which is why a bunch of CC prints get dinged up.

This is my experience from NYCC, not a matter of not being able to roll it there but more not wanting to. Rushing and tons of people jamming past you, bad idea.

A Tube/Strap setup is #1, with plenty of kraft and tissue paper for rolling. When I picked up from Spoke last year, they provided one of those storage sleeves with the print so that was a nice go between until I could find a space to sort. May need to grab some of those.

Mm. Can only imagine walking through Tokyo trying to find SOME sort of spot to roll it up nicely in. That’s totally a bummer though that CC prints aren’t as mint. I guess just realizing that now. There’s not SOME kind of method?

Maybe they should insert a cardboard backing with it into the plastic sleeve?
