I recently started collecting Daniel Danger's stuff, and I love it. It seems that I hear four of the same prints named over and over again as being favorites, and I'm wondering if there is a clear winner (most popular) amongst them, or, is there another print I'm missing? I would love to hear what people think.

This was my very first Danger so I have a soft spot for it…

... truth be told, I have a huge art-boner for "Wet Teeth in the Darkness," too. Perhaps I'll pick that up before too long.

Is all of his stuff badass or what? It seems like you could get overloaded with the blue/black combo though.

he has alot of prints, and while favourites differ, they of course often coincide giving some big ISO prints you listed above. i enjoy his greyscale prints which tend to be less popular, but here are some of my favourites in general...

I gotta admit, I owned Toru Okada and was not really thrilled with it. The ink was kind of glossy and didn't seem to go well with the paper. As an illustration, I love the image. I just didn't love it on paper. One of the few prints where I prefer the .jpg to the real thing.

I gotta say, this one looks truly amazing in person. Definitely one of my favorites by him.

There are quite a few I'd strongly suggest putting on that list above. The Mist was really well-received. And his first Lost print ' and that's why my hand was shaking...' was insanely popular. Still is sought after. The second Lost print , while not as aftermarket-valuable, is great looking.

There are at least a few other dd prints I could mention , but they arent quite as talked about , so I'll hold off for now.

This might very well be my favourite though:

Agreed. I have that one and it is stunning.

Those are two that I do not have that look incredible. At one point I will go back and pick them up.

Please Don't Worry, because it means something.

September, because it means something to me.

Lock and Key, because Sargent is king.

We Were Waiting, because it's big and awesome and Danger made one special for my girl.

I guess the people voting for Ghost Ship aren't posting comments lol

tricky question, but i think i would choose "I didn’t hear you arrive, i didnt' hear you go', absolutely love it, and happy to have it framed and up on a wall :D

Ghost Ship is far and away my favorite, but I really dig Dr. Strange. Totally underrated IMO.

I also really love Please Don't Worry and the story that goes with it.
