The Oz is my favorite from the show, edging out Psycho. Both reg and variant are impressive in person. I took a long time comparing them in the gallery and had a nice discussion about them with Kevin. I came to the conclusion that I prefer the variant. At first I was leaning towards the green background of the reg, but the orange background is true to the film and I like the contrast it provides with the green lettering. The sepia tones win out over the silver as well.

Everything that is color in the film is metallic on poster. The details in the lower third are crazy. Kevin said he worked on it for 2 years. It's difficult to see details in the jpeg, but they're awesome.

Strongly disagree here. The poster is perfect as is, a credit block would only cover up/clutter up the beautiful work at the bottom of the print and take away from the organic feel.

The drop happend while I was screen sharing during a conference call at work, so I missed out on the Scott Pilgrim. :hanging: I guess I'm fine with it; I have and love the Ansin one and there is something screwey about how Cera's face looks on Tong's. I do love how he drew Ramona, though.

+1 scott pilgrim will go nice with the world's end. Would be nice if Tong completed the trilogy!
Also +1 on robocop reg. But not sure if I like the colors. Anyone got some pictures/closeups?
Really hoping there will be a Cap drop tomorrow.

Thanks! Still not sure, but will probably love it in person. Until now always loved the prints in person when I had doubts beforehand. Metallics on the variant look great though!
