these remind me of the Stout/Taylor show prints - lots of decent prints but nothing that blows you out of the water - I like the fight club the most but I wouldn't see myself wanting to hang any of these - the flippers better get on those Olly Moss firewatch prints if they want to make their rent this month :P

The Frankenstein is sweet, just not for me. Fight Club reg color scheme is awesome, and I love how the reg and the variant differ on which character is in the picture, but also probably not for me. I am much happier with my N.E.'s FC, no need to track this down.

I disagree, pretty much every KT print at that show was a home run. There's still time though.

Really? I think that's one of the weakest. A house with a tiny Ed Norton-ish figure in front of it does not scream 'Fight Club' to me. Re-title it and it could be used for a hundred different movies. I was excited when I saw the tweet, but nope.
Have to agree with Solar here. I feel the print is really lacking and I don't think the house should be the focal point of the print.
Thought it was a nice Psycho reference.

This is rad, definitely going to look for the drop.

All great artwork and I can certainly appreciate the effort, but no must-haves. I am sensing that there will be plenty of leftovers to go around.

My one critique- I have really enjoyed when Ken has more fun with the colors versus this muted approach. These are all pretty bland colorwise across the board aside from maybe catwoman.

I'm glad he did a Children of Men print. Those are too few.
