I think Fantastic Fest, the Halloween prints and Rolling Roadshow covered a lot of the cult (or at least non-sci fi/fantasy) side of things - they've struck a good balance, IMO.

A lot of cult/underground stuff has been well covered, for a few years now (not that I wouldn't like to see more). But this is the first time these bigger kahunas - SW & ST - have had any representation in the print world (ok, except for acme).

Nah..pretty lopsided. RR hardly counts in my opinion, those aren't even "cult" movies really, FF had a couple but nothing close to the like 30 or so SW and ST posters in the last six months. Sure there is a million folks that want to see those but some of us do long for the some of the stuff mondo has been doing for years before those came along. Not saying they aren't kicking ass...cause they are...but honestly I would take a Bird with crystal plumage or creepshow any day over another SW print (unless it's Stout's or Ansins). I'm sure Justin and co. will be serving some tasty fudge in the future but at the moment it is waaaaay lopsided imo. And I know every SW and ST nerd will crucify me by pointing out the obvious. In the long run I don't mind about less releases that I will grab, mo money for mua. SW and ST clearly put mondo on the map for many that didn't even know about mondo before them, but you guys need to realize that many of us are long time supporters and see it a little different. Anyway, cheers guys I have over a hundred awesome posters that I wouldn't have without you guys.

As did I, I can imagine getting all those packed up to ship would take quite awhile.

I know this isn't Mondo nor Alamo, but it made me hope for their involvement in a Tron* print. The visual style of the movie just lends itself to screen-printing IMO.

*Tron Legacy - I know Klausen knocked his version of the first film out of the park.
