Skullduggery with Jeff Soto, Jacob And The Man In Black 82

No you are not seeing double, ok you are, but this isn't how the poster arrives. We were sent two sets of pictures by MEL, and Comixguru and I thought I would show a comparison of the photo's, also see below for another reason for showing them together.


I'm not sure I can add a lot to the discussion about this one, despite the slightly macabre image of the smashed skull, which Jeff has said is Claudia, Jacob and MIB's real mother, the poster is very striking and poweful given the events in the episode "Across The Sea". Jeff could quite easily have had a Black vs White / Good vs Evil character depiction but this immediately leaps out as something different.


One thing that wasn't apparent when we saw the images of the poster on the DamonCarltonandaPolarBear.com website was that the numbers are dotted around the skull. It also shows that there is a lot of detail in this poster, beyond the main image.


Then to the signatures and the other reason for showing the two posters together above. These two posters are siblings as well -

Hi all, back to the poster posts !

By the way does anyone know where Amy Lynn is ? I've been trying to get hold of her and have not been able to.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

and I thought you'd have the Daniel Danger up here. I just got mine yesterday but I had a migraine all so I never opened it. Still have somewhat of a headache now dang it all. Looks like the post office tried to damage it. The cap on one end is bent.

Ray said...

@Zort

I haven't heard from her, so not sure. Maybe she is on vacation?

@Evan (from last post)

I actually got them from Staples, in store. They aren't sold online and I don't think they are getting any more, unfortunately.... Its too bad because the ones that I got are great frames and only cost me $10 each. Looks like they just replaced the ones I got with a cheaper, less sturdy option.

seaque said...

I'll have to check my local Staples store...great deal on frames, Ray. You never know what they might have on the shelf at the store. Worth checking.

Justin said...

I got a great deal on some frames at my local Michael's store. I wanted some with a thicker frame and real glass, but was shocked at the expense of the big 18x24 guys. I was able to get frames that were normally $44.99 a piece for somewhere in the neighborhood of $16 a piece. The frames were 45% off in the store, then I found an online coupon for an additional 25% off my entire frame purchase, even on sale items. So, I was stoked about those. Now if I can just get all my prints....

Still waiting for Black Rock and Not Penny's Boat. I know Black Rocks are shipping... anyone have any movement on their Not Penny's Boat? I am assuming they should ship this week as it is the last print left I think.

mungonna said...

comixguru said...

aw... our posters are siblings... :)

that's cute.

maybe i should frame mine in black and yours in white? ;) gotta ask my lady- as it is really her poster!

theotherben said...

I don't know if I just can't think, but can anyone tell me what the thing is between the Ajira logo and Sawyer's glasses are? Is it a lamp breaking?

Matthew said...

it's charlie's statue with the heroine inside. From back in the Ol' days..

theotherben said...

HA! I see it now! I feel stupid.

Swound! said...

Little Friends print now says queued.. Sure that'll change back to pre-order once they remember I'm international :(

JPL said...

Mel & Comixguru - Poster "siblings" until the very end. Nice. :)

Speaking of end... just like Swound!, my NPB is also queued. If shipping trends stay the same, I could potentially have on Friday. Nice way to start long holiday weekend.

seaque said...

NPB = queued

Hope to rec'v it this weekend too.

seaque said...

Has anyone rec'd a shipping notice for their Moss/Alice print?

Just Thinking said...

@seaque- yes- I got a notice & tracking #.

Justin said...

My Not Penny's Boat is now "Queued". YEAH! That means I'll have two posters arriving soon as I ordered Sun and Jin and Not Penny's Boat together. So, can't wait to see both in person. Also won an Ebay auction for a Black Rock print since I missed out on that drop and it should be here early next week as well -- he just emailed that he received it yesterday. So, lots of new posters next week which is exciting, but then nothing after that which is sad! =(

Amy Lynn said...

I'm right here

I'm sat in my new back garden, watching a British tennis victory and using a borrowed iPad to surf the net.

Isn't living in the future great.

Amy could you email me, thanks.

Martyn said...

Wow! Not going to comment as I know nothing of the situation but, wow!

Zort70 said...

Amy, please don't post that again.

Amy Lynn said...

I won't. I just wanted people who were subscribed to the thread to get the e-mail to see what was going on, and what was being sent to me.

Mandazoid said...

Amy: I find it interesting that you will respond to a message from a stranger (who is not a LostARGer in any way, btw) calling you out on failing to honor a major charity commitment, but won't respond to those to whom that commitment was made.

I'd appreciate if you could please return the several messages I've left you on both L4L and on Facebook over the last few months.

Thank-you.

Amy Lynn said...

Considering I was banned from L4L months ago, I don't know how I would have received those e-mails.

Mandazoid said...

You have never been banned from L4L. I currently have your profile set to not see the threads, but your account is still active and that change wasn't made until just this week.

I have also attempted several times to contact you through Facebook, including posting directly to your Wall, but each message since late March has been ignored and my first Wall post was deleted within 20 minutes or so. I attempted a second Wall post a few days later and you immediately de-friended me.

Amy Lynn said...

@Manda, I do not like to be harassed. Ian and I have been talking about this issue for months. And then, out of the blue, you have your boyfriend send me a mean message about how I must have sold the poster, and said hateful things about my partner. Lovely

Jawapez said...

Received Danger's Black Rock today! Surprised to get a print number over 400 since I was fairly early in the order count...

mistersh0w said...

JERRY! JERRY! JERRY! In relevant news, my DD Black Rock has arrived! I'll post pics later.

Mandazoid said...

First, as Scott said, I had no idea that he intended to say anything to you. He can be a bit hot-headed when someone he cares about is being given the run-around. I most certainly did *not* have him send you anything. In fact, I specifically asked him to stay out of it. I cannot be held responsible for the words or actions of another.

Second, I don't understand why you refused (and continue to refuse) to respond to any of my extremely polite inquiries about the print that I am owed. We weren't being demanding. We were simply asking for an ETA or an explanation and we received nothing but silence from you.

Amy Lynn said...

1) Zort has an ETA and an explanation

2) Why am I banned from seeing threads on L4L?

Mandazoid said...

1) I appreciate that, but why the need for an intermediary? You are more than welcome to message me personally.

2)Because I felt that it was in the best interest of the community until this issue was resolved one way or another.

Amy Lynn said...

Well, there you have it then. Why don't you unblock me now?

Mandazoid said...

I have not yet received the information that I need from Zort, which you claim that he has and that you refuse to give me yourself for some baffling reason.

I will reevaluate your account status at L4L when I have been satisfactorily apprised of the details of the situation.

Amy Lynn said...

If I get unbanned and an apology from Manda and her boyfriend for what they said, I will send the poster.

Zort70 said...

I am getting really fed up with this.

Amy, the poster needs sending, I'm sure lots of people are willing to help if you are experiencing difficulties.

I have had one conversation with you about this when you promised to send the poster after the 15th of June.

I have said repeatedly on email the simplest solution is to send the poster.

I agree Scotts email was not very nice but please just send the poster so we can prove LostARGs people are the people that offer to help and support each other, not let each other down.

Do not discuss this further here until you have sent the poster.

comixguru said...

what the heck is going on here?

*confused*

but in other news... my Joshua Budich silver variant print arrived today! :) it's quite lovely. time to rearrange wall space and frame all these new prints!

pics to come...

Amy Lynn said...

Zort, I will refrain from discussing it here anymore. I apologize. I just don't like getting attacked by people who know nothing about the issue, and proceed to attack me and my family.

Weinbeeezy said...

:] My @ollymoss Alice in Wonderland print came in! :] http://twitpic.com/21b3ib

Zort70 said...

@Weinbeeezy looking good.

Zort70 said...

@Weinbeeezy looking good.

Mandazoid said...

Amy, if apologizing and reinstating your L4L account to full access will get the print that I won sent out, then by all means, Scott and I apologize for any language in his message that may have offended you.

Your account at L4L will be re-granted full access this evening after I am able to return home from work.

Amy Lynn said...

Um, first of all, this evening is too late. And that was an insincere apology, since you don't think you did anything wrong, and only said it to get a copy of my poster, which I am seriously about to hang on my wall.

Mandazoid said...

It is physically impossible for me to reinstate your account until I am able to get home. My work laptop has been having issues lately and will not properly display the admin tools necessary to do so. If I can wait more than 4 months for a print that I won with more than $400 worth of entries in a charity fundraiser raffle, you can wait 2 hours for me to reinstate your account. I would do it sooner if I could.

You requested an apology and we obliged. I really don't know what else you want from me.

Amy Lynn said...

@Manda, considering you are logged into L4L right now, I think you are just lying while you clean up all the threads with mean stuff you wrote about me.

Ray said...

What is the URL for L4L? Google isnt helping :(

Zort70 said...

Amy I have asked you not to discuss this here.

I can log in to http://lostforlife.freeforums.org/ and I cannot see Mandazoid logged in.

Please stay away until this is resolved.

Mandazoid said...

I can be on the forum, yes. However, going into the admin tools is a different ball game. I can access them, but they are jumbled and do not display properly, as I mentioned. I will have your account reinstated as soon as possible after I get home.

Anything that has been posted about this situation has not been touched (feel free to verify with any member of the forum). I did my best to keep your identity concealed until you outed yourself here today. I also posted Scott's message a few minutes ago, completely unaltered, so everyone there knows exactly what he sent you.

Again, I will have your account reinstated as soon as possible, but it's going to be about an hour and a half. That's the fastest I can possibly get home.

Amy Lynn said...

Manda, don't bother. I'm not interested in any of this anymore.

Mandazoid said...

If you change your mind, Scott's just sent you a full, personal apology. It's down to you, Amy. Let me know if you'd like to play ball and I'll reinstate your account tonight.

I'm out, Zort. I appreciate all your help.

Amy Lynn said...

Manda, thanks anyway. I will sell the poster.

futureself said...

Amy, I can confirm that Manda hasn't posted anything mean about you on LfL.

In fact, until today, she didn't even mention that it was you that donated the print, and only last week posted that she was having problems getting hold of it and asked for anyone in the NY area to help collect and ship it. Someone suggested you might be able to help being in NY and Manda replied that it was unlikey that you'd be able to help. Only later did someone make the connection that you might be the donator but Manda neither confirmed or denied this. There has been some baffled folk wondering what's going on but no conspiracy.

Amy Lynn said...

@futureself, thanks for the explanation. However, Manda's little boyfriend decided to spend the day attacking me for not having the money to ship the print, and told me that I am only with my boyfriend for his money (of which he has none, thanks).

Just Thinking said...

And-back to posters.....

Don't shoot me guys- but I am thinking to "decorate " with Alice- by putting it on a panel between 2 long narrow panels of fabric- probably with a green , black and orange print. Olly won't be insulted I don't think- read that he considers his poster work more graphic design than art.

Just Thinking said...

Not that I think it's not art!

Ray said...

@JustThinking

I'm not really following what you are saying, but it sounds cool! Take pics when you are done!

Ray said...

Just Thinking said...

OK Ray- all I have to do is get the poster delivered and mount it and find some fabric and mount it and then hang them- maybe I'll just draw the idea and post it :).

Zort70 said...

Amy re uou not having money I have already offered quite some time ago to send you the money to ship the print, and offered to get someone to pick it up.

There is no excuse at this point I'm afraid.

You have promised me that you will send the poster if an apology from Scott is sent and your access to L4L is restored.

I can only trust you will do the decent thing when this happens.

Zort70 said...

Sorry to everyone else for getting caught up in something that should have remained private.

Davide said...

More pictures, less stupid talking please.

Davide said...

Zort, you're the only one who doesn't need to apologize.

Amy Lynn said...

I apologize, Davide!

chaseter said...

Oh wow I just read what Zort offered to do to right everything and I just want to applaud him. That was an extremely generous offer and I respect you immensely for even offering to do that. Cheers. Hope everyone has a happy and safe 4th.

Well....

I'm sure everyone has seen this by now, and it's probably already been posted here, but in case no one has, here's How It Should Have Ended's version of the Ending of Lost!

andalone said...

NPB now shipped. It really is over. :(

capostar said...

i got my Olly yesterday. I hope I NEVER have to buy something through GO MERCH again. It was shipped in a unnecessarily over-sized tube. I'm convinced that the size alone disposed it to inspection by customs.

You know how it arrived? OPENED!

My father accepted it for me, and left in a room. I got home, and as I approach it, I see the lid is warped, sitting inside the tube, and just on the bubblewrap.

I almost had a heart attack. In that second I thought my poster was crushed for sure. Wow, someone actually would have took out the poster from the tube, AND could have stolen it! I was furious. Eff-n customs! And they've opened my stuff before, too.

Seriously, if someone DIDNT viciously hack at the lid, for it to look like it does, then this is the worst poster-securing job ever. How close I came to losing this. It's pure luck that the poster was still intact, wrapped in it's paper, and uncreased. Luck.

Apart from this ordeal, i was excited that i got a really high number: 495. That's Crazy. I'd be interested to see if anyone on here claims #500.

Limbofunk said...

I don't think the number really pertains to the order you purchased the poster in this time around. I bought 'The Canidate' within the first two minutes and have a number in the mid 300's.

seaque said...

Yeah, it sounds like the customs people didn't how to open the tube and they hacked it up. I remember during the 1st series many people had trouble with the tubes. They didn't realize that you only needed to cut around the tape and slip off the top of the tube.

Sorry about your mini heart-attack, I would have been freaked-out too. Glad to hear all is well with your print.

I rec'd my Moss/AiW print today. I didn't know it was shipped (no notice rec'd). What a great surprise when I got home! :)

Matthew said...

...i just bought the black rock from ebay. Im so happy right now! The one I've always wanted will be MINE!!! ...knowing my luck though there'll be some weird issue like it'll just be a photo of the print or something

capostar said...

Gotcha, Limbofunk.

Thx for the sympathies, seaque.

Also at issue, is that these people don't even have the courtesy to re-tape the thing to prevent easy theft.

I'm just fortunate...

seaque said...

Matthew said...

The one I've always wanted...

Me too, Matthew. You're going to love it even more when you see it up-close. I did. lol...I'm sure all will be fine with your print. I'm buying frames this weekend...can't wait to get it up on the wall.

@andalone - My NPB shipped too. I'm really anxious to see this print...I hear it's a great print and the jpeg doesn't do it justice.

Swound! said...

I got my Olly AP yesterday - number 47/50. Looks ace.

My bro got his AP today - not only did he get number 4, but he also got a free Alice print!

Made me jealous anyway. Maybe he was sending the free print to all the people with 'Lost' numbers? Or maybe I'm just thinking too hard and it was just random..

Swound! said...

oh, and it would be really nice if Go Merch suprised me and shipped one of my prints soon..

Zort70 said...

Congrats to your brother Swound! that is very cool.

comixguru said...

@andalone.... not quite... season 6 /complete set dvds/blu-rays coming in august! :) Lost University 2, and all the goodies! chin up, darlin'!

namaste-
alice.

seaque said...

Swound! said...

Made me jealous anyway.

Ha! Me too...not that it makes you feel better. Good for him!

Zort70 said...

Right it's about time for a NEW POST
