While they are cool, the I've never seen a remake of a star wars poster that beats the pulpy awesomeness of the original

I get why nerds like them, but I was never turned on by this guy's work. It's all the same. He's like the Thomas Kincaide of nerd art.

However, I give credit for the Empire Strikes Back poster using a Cloud City platform as Boba Fett's eye slit. That was kind of clever.

And I will say that at least his posters show some (some, but not a lot of) creativity, as opposed to the awful status quo in Hollywood posters which have a bunch of heads floating in a blue/reddish-gold background. Hollywood lost their way somewhere around the late 80s, and they've been cranking out ugly movie posters ever since.

But there's better stuff out there. This guy's stuff looks more like cheesy nerd t-shirt shop art than classy movie posters.

More like the over-hyped, sub-par graphic design malaise of Mondo's nostalgia cash-in.

Holy shiat, I've never wanted to "THIS" something so hard.

Knock yourself out...
Cut to the chase

I haven't picked up one of their prints in a couple of years. Anymore, they are just not worth the time, effort or cash.

Very subtle. Since the hover text still says '109' in it..

1) I don't see any hover text

So you refuse to click on a site that provides you free information? You are hardcore. You need to take your cause to the masses, march on Washington. Stand your ground you poor 99% I hope someday people will feel your struggle and rise up against clicking a link and,once again, this country can stand tall and say "This link was not clicked" . This is your time to shine. You can be the Al Sharpton of link clicking, the Harvey Milk of of railing against free information. I feel your outrage brother, and I will follow you to the gates of hell until the scourge of free shiat is finally and permanently wiped from the face of the earth. That is unless someone is willing to post a different link to the same shiat I refuse to click on so I can see it anyway. Viva la Revolution!!!
