  1. Hm, the link appears to lead nowhere.

  2. Where is it?

  3. Hmmmmmm?

  4. Was this post an error? I’d rather not sit in front of the screen F5ing if it’s not going to happen tonight.

  5. @kyle – I’m the real kyle so please quit posing as me

  6. There was an online preview for a short time but now it has been taken down. Anyone who missed out must wait for the leftovers tomorrow sometime.

  7. I saw it. The crowd favorites were already sold out. That one hobo camped out in front of the gallery yesterday must have bought out whole runs.
    Most of the images were not lined up with the correct descriptions. There were also a few things were missing. Kind of odd. Thought I was looking at a test page at first.

    Lots of Venture Brothers and ATHF. Not enough Squidbillies. Tons of Steve Brule.

  8. Thanks for the info Snoopy. Otherwise I would have been up all night! Anyone know when they will officially go online?

  9. Everything’s up now, though many of them popped up as sold out including Moss, Whalen, and Perillo.

  10. Really stoked the Dr. Rockso 12″ cocaine mirrrors I sent, sold out at the opening BUT I’ll be sending more this week. The print came down to the wire(6 colors printed on a fucking mirror takes time) so I couldn’t gett all of them down to LA in time. More this week!!

  11. site is back up…

  12. I see Olly Moss did a rip off of Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns cover. So, all those who complained about Obey or Life Versa, now have to complain about Olly or you are a hypocrite.

  13. well played @natas, he definitely did. It seems like this is different to me somehow. maybe its worse?! maybe not as bad?!
    I don’t know.
    The Life Versa was just so weird, I guess it went over my head. Versa was obviously making the CofA statement mentioned. Again, I stick with my point that “selling a bunch of variants for 65$ is an odd way to show that point”….
    Olly made an obvious play on Frank’s cover. He has publicly mocked all the variations of his Keep Calm. so yes, its weird.
    Still, I Love the kid’s work. He’s Proven himself a great artist.
    Ok its saturday night. Get off the poster forum… :) peace

  14. What’s up with the lack of Superjail! and the overabundance of Tim and Eric? The selection of Metalocalypse stuff was really slim too, which is disappointing.

  15. I think the unsung hero at this show was Glen Brogan.

    His prints look killer.

  16. PosterChris:

    “his Keep Calm”?

    Are you saying that Olly Moss has “publicly mocked” variations of a t-shirt design he based on the world famous, 72 year old poster? A poster which is in the public domain and free for anyone to print copies of, sell, spoof and refer to?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keep_Calm_and_Carry_On

    With all due respect and I am a huge fan of his work which frequently blows me away, but there is not much of an original idea there. The poster, with variations, can be found in any souvenir shop in the UK. I am sure that you can dig up a variety of spoofs of that poster with the message reversed, even if worded slightly different, dating back to the original poster being discovered in 2000.

  17. @ak yeah, i picked up a Brogan Venture Bros. print. very cool.

  18. @neverly Yeah, that looked really nice. I ordered the Birdgirl as I love that show a ton. So do you have it in hand? If so, is it signed and what type/quality of paper did he use?

  19. @ak no i ordered it from the website. I’m in St. Louis.

  20. Disappointed that Home Movies got no love, but snagged the vintage Space Ghost. Too much Venture Bros. for my taste but what’re you gonna do?

  21. @kim I think its fair to say the variations on that print 10 fold after Moss’ success with his.
    I know it’s legal and public domain, I’m not questioning that. nor am i questioning the legality of the Bat. its a spoof. And one i don’t get really, having not seen the show.
    I was just pointing out how HE was publicly annoyed with all the ReSpoofs on His Spoof.
    Im sure there are multiple aspects of the irony of this I am missing.
    Frank Miller is a Right wing Freak if I’m not mistaken? Perhaps this is part of it?
    :)

  22. Yeah, I would have loved to see some Coach McGuirk portraits or Home Movies prints. Bummer

  23. @AK, I agree, Glen rocked it yet again!

  24. The Whalen Dethklok def wasn’t metal enough….. imo

  25. No one did a Sealab 2021 print…kind of sad about that. The first two seasons were f’n awesome.

  26. @natas i saw a few Sealab pieces of captain murphy.
    @rambo yeah, no dethklok love. ther should have a few brutal pieces.

  27. whoops, the last one…

  28. Not enough sealab or metalocalypse IMO and I was super bummed my fave show Frisky Dingo had no representation, and honestly what’s up with Venture Bros??? That show ain’t worth all those prints

  29. @Toobs Yes. Yes it is worth all of those prints.

  30. @natas

    Olly Moss did an extremely obvious tribute to the dark knight there, Shepard ripped off anothers artists picture of Obama and tried to hide it, pretty different scenarios.

  31. Toobs I was going to do Frisky Dingo but Black Dynamite really needed a poster. Killface campaign posters woulda been fun though.

  32. DK2 the biggest joke on the comic book industry.

    To be fair, Venture Bros. is one of the first things I think of when someone mentions Adult Swim. I’m not a “member” of this particular world, so obviously the show is popular enough that I immediately associate it with Adult Swim when it’s brought up somewhere. Perhaps it really is that popular.

    On a side note, I think G1988 should have a limit as to how many artists cover any one particular show or film in an exhibition. I’m not interested in controlling artists intellectually or in any other way, but having some kind of sign-up system where the most popular topics are not overdone would be ideal. This has happened several times in the past. I wanted to see more variety in “Another Dimension” (the Twilight Zone show) and all of the Crazy 4 Cult shows, for example.

  34. them dang ole’ squids from the great south where not properly printed there for i call shanagans on the show as a whole (dug that they reped space ghost as hard as they did)

  35. Home Movies is not an original Adult Swim show. So it was not technically an option.

    More Metalocalypse would have been nice.
