Prefer bolder colors on regular. Seems more in line with film palette for this sequence.

Variant foil from FB

Agreed, though I'm anxious to see both in person. Really hope the regular has metallics.

Yep, but I was in stealth mode (i.e. avoiding long lines). 8)

One of my highlights was chatting with Gary Lockwood for a good half hour about Kubrick, 2001 and about how his dad changed the way people buy groceries. :D

The other highlight was the The X-Files panel: Duchovny was hilarious and engaged.

So much for not waiting in long lines.

Neither had long lines. I walked up to Gary's booth and walked into the panel prior to The X-Files, so it was just a 15-20 minute wait. 8)

Coming back to this print though, I am usually not a fan of foil, but this was tastefully done. Got 2 copies signed by Gary.

Nah, I walked up to the Mondo booth ~ 20 minutes before the hall closed each day and was able to pick up most of the stuff I wanted. Only missed out on the Matt Taylor Guardians var, but the time saved was worth it. Sunday was the only day I went straight for the Mondo booth because of the OMGZ mystery print. Picked up my number and came back an hour or so later, given the long wait.
