The font design and graphic might be my favorite part of that, PCC has done a really solid job with THEIR BTAS posters over the years.
Fixed!

That Two Face drymounting rules. That hork puzzle is going to be a goddamn nightmare to complete. :lol:

I think the only non BTAS Batman prints I have ever really dug were the Jock villains variant and the Ansin 66.

Ansin SW is...a lot going on.
Like all his stuff its well crafted but still...miss old Ansin and his stuff looking like a screen print in conceptual design. All recent stuff is too much, too polished.
Love the McQuarrie Vader nod, Obi-Wan looks cool.
Leia looks like she's in a rom-com, Han doesn't look New Hope, more Return of the Jedi...
Wish great artists like Ansin didn't resort to a simple redrawing/tracing of stock photos/screen grabs...too much of that.
Prefer the originality and simplicity of Wretched Hive 10 years ago (?!)
/knee jerk art analysis
I think we all miss old-style Ansin, so no argument there. But I think the redrawing of stock photos comes down to a rights issue usually. I think it's just too hard for them to get something wholly original past anymore. That said, I'm pretty excited about this one, which I haven't said about Mondo for a bit.

By not releasing price points beforehand they figured folks would panic buy the var anyway...and they were right. Oof.

am I getting old or is Mondo making this way more confusing than it needs to be lol. wasn't sure if this was dropping in "the drop" part of site or the comic-con page. Also wasn't sure what all was going on sale right now since images were still blurred and I thought they said somewhere that all products would be revealed a few hours in advance.

Variant took awhile to show up for me. Ansin foil is usually pretty great, guessing this will look good in person.

def like having multiple drops over a few days, should be fun

I got put in two checkout lines and struck out. I have a friend who loves everything star wars and mondo.

It was easier scoring the Fairey yesterday.

+1 var. I really like the colors on this poster and think it's a great Star Wars composition. Getting fatigued on Star Wars art but I enjoy this one.

wasn't interested in it but am a bit shocked by $150 for a run of 325. covid must halted the foil paper production supply.

so after shipping and tax, about $200? lol.
