Metropolis Screen Print Posters

Over the last year or two there have been quite a few posters produced  for the Fritz Lang 1927 silent classis “Metropolis” by contemporary artists. Some are really great and I wanted to share the images of those added to my collection. If you reading this, hope you enjoy them.

First up is my favourite by Laurent Durieux, produced for Dark Hall Mansion’s seminal film series of screen print posters. This first one (regular) was produced in addition of 200.

The next was Durieux’s variant of the release, a completely different image, poster size and format and in a limted of just 100.

Some ‘Must Have’ Mondo releases at SDCC 2013

Ok, this weekend has seen the San Diego Comic Convention in USA at which apparently has been mega busy by all reports. Things sold out pretty quickly and though I tried to get a poster buddy to get me a few posters bsides the Ansin Conan poster I already secured I’ve not had any luck., So, over the coming months I will be trying to buy on the secondary market or will try to acquire through trading some of my older stuff for a number of ‘must-haves”. Here are the ones that I would really like to own in my collection and the best in my opinion on what has been on offer, though understandbly, I ain’t seen everything. These are my faves and the ones marked * are my must haves:
