I guess they aren't sticking with the "release details will be emailed 24 hours before the drop" thing?

I'm in Canada and it costs more to ship everywhere, so get over it.

I think that it is the buttons.

I like a lot of Kurtz's posters, but am not a fan of his portrait work. Photo-realism can be impressive, but I prefer things that I haven't seen before.

I agree.. especially after Ruiz Burgos version on BNG, which I personally prefer to this one.

Exactly.

A million artists can draw a baby yoda picture, but what makes Kurtz or a good Mondo poster succeed is how the work translates to a poster layout and dynamic, with the great ones being original in their poster recipe.

Speaking of photorealism, I wouldn't mind Greg Ruth's two pieces for Parasite to be produced in something more than the litho.
