The Arena Of Destiny: Starring Liam Neeson!

There was a record number of entries for The Incredible Suit's competition to win a copy of the quite literally large and heavy book The Art Of Drew Struzan. Something tells me I should have got Titan Books to post it to the winner rather than fork out for the extortionate postage myself. You can be sure it's no "Large Letter" as well, this mother is a full-on "Packet".

The correct answer was, obviously, that this is my favourite Struzan poster:
...and, believe it or not, it doesn't actually feature in the book. What up with that?

Anyway, as it's a special occasion I thought I'd get a special guest to pick the winner, so I asked The A-Team star Liam Neeson to help. And guess what?

So thanks to Liam and congratulations (insert winner's name), I am literally on my way to the post office now. If I fall off my bike because the book is so heavy it's your fault.

  1. Congratulations to Gary.
    The film reviews by The Incredible Suit include titles starting with most letters of the alphabet except for OVXZ. I look forward to these gaps being filled. If undecided about which movie to see next why not plumb for a 'Orca', 'Vampyr', 'Xiu, Xiu' or 'Zigzag' rather than 'Adaptation', 'Backdraft', 'Candyman' or 'Darkroom'.

  2. I thought the freeze frame was the winner. Boo Hoo Gary. Congratulations Hitchcock.

  3. It's not me! I thought I'd won too, oh well better luck next time.

  4. Gary, have you thought of legal action, an Incredible Law Suit, for mental cruelty? You must be suffering traumatic loss having been led to believe you had won only to discover the freeze frame was a devious deception. In the Suit's shoes, well, in his place, I'd mail you the original other copy to avoid a fuss.

  5. Shush now Tony. Liam Neeson's decision is final.

  6. Congrats Antony...I am officially gutted! I'll just have to go out and buy a copy now, I hope you're happy Mr Suit.

  7. I've double checked and there was no entry from any Marge Gunderson, so you can't be gutted if you didn't enter.
