I ordered two boxes. Keeping my fingers crossed for some good sketches. I got an awesome Ted Dastick "Panic in Paris" in my other box!!

Two box break.
Jorge Baeza, Lee Bradley, Repka auto

Love the Baeza, has to be the most colorful card I've pulled from the set.
Really appreciate the moody Bradley as well. I think if the blacks were totally black and a little more care given to staying in the lines with the black coloring it'd be an outstanding card. Large fields of black must be very hard to do since I see similar streaky areas in a lot of cards across many sets. Also got a gold and two sketch variations so pretty solid for two loose boxes.

OK, who else got some?

Still waiting for my Comp box.
No comp box on the SW illustrated but I think i didn't qualify for that since I didn't get all my cards done.

Yep.

Now I have to go tell little Billy there will be no Mars Attacks box to open under the tree.
No marines. No martians. No lasers and no brain splatter.
