Link worked for me, via the news site.

£100 for an art print.

Couldn't get the site to load, but was hoping for a lower price to be honest! We're buying a new flat soon so it would be nice to christen it with some lovely wall art though. Hmmm.

And, having bought these prints, if you're still in the market for a bargain, I've got these fine magic beans...
Dan Dare will return for a new adventure soon, Earthlets!

The colouring on Prog 403 is a bit strange

I really like this one- but the price...

Yeah- it's beautiful- but about £100 more than it's worth, IMO.  That said, it is a limited print, so you can justify the price that way, I guess.  

Again, though- the framing is ludicrously expensive.
Pffft...

One of my favourite "historic" Dredd covers. Tempting.

Attack of the Merchandisers from Planet Unrealistik!

Anyone who forks out that much for a fucking print is a *fool*. Doubly so if they pay double to have four bits of chipboard and some glass added to it as well.

Mr Benn didn't try on all those suits, did he?

Eyes Wide Shut always reminds me of a Mr. Benn story, with added porn.

Wasn't there only 14 episodes, or something?  I always wanted to see the one about him being an astronaut- but it was always that episode where he was a fucking chef.  Or a caveman.
