My only guess would be to watch eBay. I have been keeping an eye out for this one also but no luck yet.

Franchi will be a guest at this year's Motor City Comic Con in May, along with Adam West and Burt Ward. Franchi put a bunch of pics on Facebook of the prints he'd be selling at the show, and the one below will be on sale. It's similar to what's posted above, but not exact.

Don't buy from eBay when it comes to art prints-- 99% of the time it's folks ripping off an artists design and making cheap copies. Buy from the artist or his rep.

I couldn't agree more with Mr Fish on this one, please don't buy prints from eBay. There is a huge and equally sad irony in the idea of liking something so much you want to have it on your wall but somehow cutting out an independent artist who worked really hard to create that piece of work out of the equation.

You could perhaps try reaching Chris via the Facebook page for his artwork. He has made reference there to selling prints at his convention appearances, so perhaps this is a good starting point.

I picked one up a bit over a year ago at Awesome Con in Indiana for $10 knowing it was not an original artist print. But I got it so I could have Adam and Burt sign it since it was probably the only time I could get it done. If you are into cons, you might be able to find one.

I was at a con in Chicago last year and as I walked by the booth of a dealer selling HUNDREDS of prints I noticed a design I'd seen before.

ME: Wow, very cool. Are these authorized by the artist?
HIM: Of course! We have an agreement.
ME: Really? That's interesting because I'm the artist.

Not cool. This is what leads to artists NOT offering prints of their work. It's thievery and in many cases it violates any agreement the artist has with a publisher in offering works of existing characters, and can cost that artist the ability to do any more work on that character.

Don't support thieves.
