Choice Collectibles Print Review

December 23, 2015 by  
Filed under Collectibles, Comic Books, Everything Else

The folks at Choice Collectibles were kind enough to offer me a print to review, and I took them up on their generous offer. They dispatched to me a Limited Edition Lithograph Print called “Enforcers.” Although I could not find an artist credit on the print, I recognized the work of David Finch, and a quick Google search revealed that it was originally a cover variant for Avengers/Invaders #1 back in 2008.

Print 1

As a graphic artist and someone who has worked in printing in one shape or another for the past 16 years or so, I can say that the printing looks impeccable. The colors are sharp and clear (my photos do not do it justice). This matted print is going to look great hanging on the wall!

Print 2

Choice Collectibles did a great job of shipping the print to me. My only peeve was that the print (covered in a plastic sleeve) was actually taped to the cardboard insert that protected it. I ended up ripping the protective plastic sleeve a little bit getting the tape off.

Print 3

Choice Collectibles has been in business for over 18 years and have developed a close partnership with Marvel. They have prints from a lot of other fantastic brands, too, including DC, Disney, Hanna-Barbera, Warner Bros., etc. They also have some very cool Star Wars prints including some for The Force Awakens! Be sure to check them out.

About This Convention
PartyCon is half convention, half social meetup, and 100% rockin’ New Years celebration! In addition to the New Years party essentials like live music, tasty food, drinks, and dancing, we’ve added tabletop gaming, video game tournaments, anime screenings, and of course, lots of cosplay. You’ll also be able to meet comic artists, sci-fi authors, and buy awesome merchandise from dozens of vendors.

More than most geek gatherings, PartyCon emphasizes the social aspect of fandom. Maybe there’s a new board game you’re interested in, but you don’t have anyone to play it with. Play a demo match in our game room! Maybe your RPG group has broken up and moved away. Make some new friends and plot a new campaign as the balloons drop! Maybe you’re new to the area or it’s been tough to find that special someone that gets you. Kindle a new romance at one of our speed dating sessions and dance the night away!

And PartyCon is family friendly, too. Mom and dad can’t find a babysitter for the holiday? Bring the kids along and let their imaginations run wild! Whether it’s Breakfast with the Superheroes or our Giant Nerf Battle, there will be plenty for them to do!

So if you’re looking for a new and exciting way to kick off 2016…
If the bar scene just isn’t for you…
If you’re tired of getting weird looks when you hit the dance floor in your hoop dress and steam-powered parasol…

…then join us at PartyCon!
