    According to The Digital Bits, this will be a SE of the film, released by Blue Underground. No details are mentioned yet.

    I'm looking forward to this. In the documentary Frazetta: Painting With Fire, there's a whole chapter where Ralph Bakshi and Frank Frazetta discuss their collaboration on this film.

    That's not an especially limited number. As much as I love this movie I doubt they'd move 20,000 copies of any version of it.

    I had been contemplating picking up the Frazetta doc; I seem to catch it in pieces on IFC, but never the whole thing. This is good news, indeed.

    Seriously. With the Frazetta doc included, I may make this a blind buy.

    I haven't seen this one, but I was very happy with the Wizards dvd, so I think I will check this out when it comes out. The interview with Bakshi on the Wizards dvd was great, both funny and very informative. I hope there's something similar on this.

    John, I think you'll be pleased. In Painting With Fire Frazettta and Bakshi are interviewed together; there's a lot of friendly banter and it's easy to see these two geniuses, as well as being friends, greatly admire each other.

    I'll be all over this one.
    interesting the 2 disc limited edition is only 2 discs.
    I just bought the documentary Painting with Fire and it's a 2 disc set by itself.

    the bonus disc doesnt have much extra to talk about though.. just extended interviews and some notes narrated by the actor that played the rotoscoped necron.
