Today’s mailbag is an amalgamation of many of the questions I have been getting on my new Limited Edition Print “Bats in the Belfry”, which goes on sale online here tomorrow:

Q: How many prints in your limited edition?

A: Just like the last two prints, there will be 450 of them, all hand numbered and signed.

Q: How much will they be?

A: $25 plus shipping, just like the others.

Q: How big is it?

A: Big. 11″ x 28″.

Q: Will you ever reissue the print after the limited editions are sold out?

A: Nope. Both the James Bond and Doctor Who prints are completely sold out (although I do have a few of the Doctor Who prints left from the original print run, which I am selling as “Artist Proofs”), and I will not be printing them again.

Q: Will you be selling the original art as well like before?

A: Yes. Just like the last two, I did the original inks of each of the Batmen as individual pieces and will be selling them as “Special Editions” along with a signed and numbered “SE” print series of eight. They will be priced at $125 each. Several of them all already spoken for, though. I will post the individual ones still available sometime later tomorrow.

Q: This is your second print in less than 4 months. Are we going to be inundated with new prints several times a year now?

A: No. My intention was always to do only one print a year, but the Sherlock print was sort of a special extra one. Most of the time I will have a new print released in the early summer. I’ll do it as long as people are interested in buying them. Don’t worry, if you are a completist kind of collector you won’t be looking at “Disney Water globe” syndrome here, where 20 new items are released each year.

Q: Why didn’t you draw the bat on the chest of the Batmen?

A: Because that bat symbol is a trademarked property, and even though this is a parody of the subject matter including a trademark is hard to defend legally.
