    ^^^ What he said! @Mark K another jaw has dropped.

    Edit:

    1.) Both of those creations are just fantastic.

    2.) Anyyyy chance you have a closer-up pic of the other Return of Ultraman section? The one from 6.jpg?

    For my band's 30th year celebration (we missed our 25th :lol: ) we got a vinyl press run of a past project that only came out on cd!
    Very excited for this short run, extended edition. The art work makes me chuckle, because I made it in the most rudimentary way when I was learning illustrator, but I think it still looks cool after all these years 8).

    Pheeeenomenal publisher. Pretty much one person runs the show, Pakito Balino.
    https://www.lederniercri.org/
    They've published original works by Charles Burns, Mike Diana, Mark Beyer and David Sandlin, tho the roster are mostly unknown outside of the realm of LDC. Not just incredibly well screenprinted books, LDC offer stunning prints, tarot cards, collector card sets, cds, records, etc wow.
    Good place to dive into the world of LDC are their compilation volumes, Hopital Brut. Expect to pay $100+ on secondary market for later issues, 3 to 5x that for early, 'rare' Hopitals. They're thick, dense volumes; you won't feel shorted by the amount of material v cost.
    There's an Hopital Brut video well worth tracking down; it's a wonderful, torturous, eye-bleed-inducing, heavenly nightmare.

    Never saw your other post/s re LDC, nico000; sorry if the above repeats anything you've already said.

    Original Asahi Sonorama page spread/art on the left, Zazahn illustration from an unknown publication on the right. It seems these are Takashi Minamimura pieces (thanks to @deafmetal for the translation help!), which are amazing to have. Had to go all in on this.

    Nice grab Patrick. I was collecting this series when it was first coming out. Had a complete collection up until around issue 80 until I stopped. Sold issues 1 - 75 between 2006 to 2010 so I can buy more kaiju sofubi. Kind of regret it now.

    Thanks @chimply.kaiju
    I has been a lot of fun replacing some of the books that I had when I was younger and got rid of, or just ones that I wanted when I was younger but was never able to pick up.
    I don't know if you ever make it up to NH at all, but if you are ever in the Salem area, you should check out Little Giant Comics at the Rockingham Mall. They have so much good stuff and their prices are decent.

    DHL was kind enough to leave my package on the front door in the heavy rain even though I requested the back door which has a roof section. Lucky for me the items were fine as Tikibrain doubled-boxed the items, so my spirits were not dampened by DHL incompetence.

    Couldn't decide on 1 color shirt so I bought both. An unexpected bonus of the wind-up Franken Monster walker was thrown in the package.

    Is it wrong that I get a Lux Interior vibe from the Frank mask on the left? :D

    Thanks for the info. Looking at the post on IG for it, looks like someone else had the same idea as me.

    Not in the mail, but from a real-live bricks and mortar bookstore (f*ck Amazon for shipping books in oversize boxes with zero padding or protection . . . dumbasses!) . . .
