Speaking of which, are they going to be included? I don't see them listed anywhere so far and they sure deserve to be included.

Dunno, but I assume so. They haven't finalised the specs...well, I reckon they haven't anyway.

Arrow would usually state "FINAL ART + SPECS" if they were detailing the final specs, but they just said "FINAL ART" this time around. Probably still working on the extras, though I do still think they'll be about as modest as the Yoshida and Kobayashi sets.

Well those boxes were justified by the film's combined run-time. Is there anyone who can talk about the films themselves?
After seeing a few of Terayama shorts I'm rather hit and miss with Japanese surrealism

Shock Treatment's cover are appropriately 1980s looking gaudy, but I think they nailed the look.

Really love the cover for the Fulci film and great job bringing in Timothy Pittides on board. Great work!

The Slayer is above the usual art for Arrow where it becomes well drawn floating heads, but I can not say the same for the Mario Bava film.

The standard release seems to use the theatrical poster design, probably because many will already have I Wish and Like Father, Like Son with the simple designs too (and it'll match them). I assume they'll also be on the reverse of each title in the box set.

I like the box set artwork, but is it enough to convince me to double-dip? Not at the current price, but maybe in a future sale. Would double-dip eventually for the Tony Rayns features and the booklet.

Arrow's cover art for Ronin is revealed.

Arrow has stated the booklet has images illustrated by Chris Malbon, whose art has been proven by scientists to be the opposite of the above cover. Looking forward to that more!

This film is about big guns, car chases and Paris. I only know this from years of studying books on Semiotics.

I didn't realize Suture ever came with a booklet, since it was not announced with one, but the copy I received this morning does. Its 32 pages long, includes essays by Philippe Garnier and Jonathan Romney, and a selection of contemporary reviews.

Artwork is by Laz Marquez, who also did sleek poster designs for STRANGER THINGS.

Interesting that they seem to have used the same title font from an old paperback edition:

Is it possible that a recent title, The City of the Dead (released April 2017) is already on its Second Printing? Just received a copy with no booklet.

I have to say, as much as I love the way Arrow handle most things when it comes to releasing physical media, the whole "Booklet only on First Printing" thing is handled very poorly. Absolutely no way to know as a customer what the hell you will receive in the mail.

Why not have a different cover for the second printing and beyond, or a sticker for first print-run.

Very frustrating, and yes I know, it’s just a booklet, but the additional material makes a big difference, and for me as a customer is one of the elements that distinguishes Arrow from many other companies.

Rant over... 8-[

Really? I'm very surprised if it's already onto its second pressing since it only came out in April - I recently got copies of The Burning and Dark Water still with booklets, and those were no doubt more popular than The City of the Dead.

Was it definitely not a reseal? Could just be a manufacturing error. I'd actually contact Arrow and ask, I'm sure even they would be surprised.

I received a confirmation from Arrow on Twitter stating it is on its second printing with no booklet.

Hangmen Also Die! just arrived from the Arrow sale and it came with a booklet. Pretty happy about that.
