Carted both... took a long hard look and made me realize these would never unseat Ken's Batman '89 place on my wall.

Good luck everyone!

False God - which works on many levels inside and outside the film. Almost got me to buy it.

Are you saying this is the 'peeps' of posters?

I considered it for a minute (carted both) but looking at the statue behind Batman made me remember the movie more and passed.

Honestly, it feels like even Mondo backed off of this. Wouldn't they normally tell as large an audience as possible that they had a Batman V Superman poster available? Seems odd to do a surprise drop on a major IP.

Oof. 0/3 on BvS prints so far. A rare miss for KT, imo. The variant armored Batman looks badass though.

This would've been a great poster if the movie didn't suck. Shame.

To be fair the statue hand does look weird like that in the movie as well.

Still pulling for a Jock BvS. No matter how I feel about the movie.. I'll make believe it's a The Dark Knight Returns variant cover.

Ken Taylor wrote:Creating this poster was an exciting but daunting task. Instead of presenting a traditional sort of battle or fight scene, I decided to show the potential uneven nature of a fight between a man and a virtual “god". Utilizing the giant sculpture of Superman seen in the film towering over a defiant Batman seemed the most natural way to communicate this idea.
So it goes...

Thinking of going to the Emerald City Comicon here in a couple weeks in Seattle just for the Mondo booth. Will there be prints available that are otherwise sold out on the website? Worth it in general? Thanks.
