Fill in a noob. Are these things going to keep their value in the long haul? Seems Moss and Stout are the most popular and valuable. How would you rank their standard go-to artists? Are Mondo prints a fad in art? While an obviously expensive hobby, do you find collecting worth it?

Well, it all depends upon the implied value of Moss' continuation of (old) pop culture figures and the obtaining of (new) likeness rights for Stout's characterization development process to further the market value of movies posters which feature the faces of prominent figures in pop culture.

I hope that explained everything.

I like how the person who just spent more $ on a Mondo print than anyone in EB history just posted the graph displaying plummeting value :lol:
