I have to admit I would have been pretty PO'd if I had lined up for all that time and then come away with one of those for my troubles :)

the BIN prices on those Olly Moss game of thrones prints are hilarious - £70 for a single Dany print? still if anyone pays that then its worth the hassle I guess.

Hey, I'm just browsing through Framing Corner and I read your post mentioning that you've used ezeframe before to try out mount combos. Have you purchased anything from their site? Recommend them?

the frame I got was pretty good quality I thought and I was happy with it, their white core mounts are apparently acid free but the black core mounts are not (which is pretty common I believe) - the only thing they don't do is have any UV resistant glazing/plexi so it depends how bothered you are by that.

Truth. I dig the Ncfom print but not for $350+.

It is classic KT though - is it me or have most of his best work been landscape prints?

A good mondo poster and its an event exclusive - who could have guessed that would be the case...

I just hope the guys with the fire watch posters have some understanding eBay customers

Trouble is nothing else from the show is going to flip and those guys have got to make their rent somehow - would love to get one but pointless asking for a PBS especially as all I could offer is a TB PB but as everyone would want anything Olly has it would take away 90% of my own reason for attending and I would rather have that to look forward to than any one poster

It seems to me that the NCFOM is just a self fulfilling prophecy. There was buzz buzz buzz about it beforehand and now that it's actually 'real', people will clamour for it and mostly not because of the actual art. If this had been a standard Mondo online release people would have moved on already! I was more interested in Ken's ink drawings - they looked really good.

We'll have to see if it goes the same way as the Stout Drive. Although there was less buzz with this and the art stands up better.

I bought a print from a guy yesterday. He then asked if I wanted anything from the show as he was popping along. I was like erm not really, maybe a Frankenstein if theres some. This was before the news came out on the new releases.

Agree, I would have bought that Catwoman on the spot. I have a couple of Tim Sale sketches and 3 or 4 more by other artists of the character. Someone thought it was expensive. And though it's smallish, that's a perfectly decent price for such a big name. Well IMO at least.

The Daily Mirror today reprinted an entire newspaper to commemorate D-Day and in an advert for Mars Bars I noticed this little disclaimer that read

ZONING ..Now restricts Mars to the Southern Counties. Here's hoping for quick victory so everyone can have a Mars bar everywhere

Looks like you Northern monkeys were discriminated against even then? :D
