    I'd like to get a clean, high res print of Don Figueroa's artwork for the movie comic adaptation, especially issue #4 to display.

    The Animated Movie #4 - Transformers Comics - TFW2005

    Is it best to contact Don, Josh Burcham (colourist) or IDW directly?

    Thank you.

    IDW themselves don't really sell prints that is more of an artist thing at conventions, but they usually don't just make prints of interior artwork. (Primarily covers or other original prints that they did for fun.)

    I can pretty much guarantee IDW won't just make you a random set of prints or send you the artwork for you to make your own. The artists MAY have access to the stuff you want, but honestly your best bet is probably to buy the issue on Comixology and using the DRM free files to make your own prints somewhere. I'm not sure on the resolution though so I'm not sure how it would look at a larger size.

    (Assuming you're referring to that cover specifically?)

    Burcham would be the most likely to have the clean, high-res file needed to make a print, but it's also been several years, and he's a prolific artist, so that's definitely a maybe.

    If he hasn't made a print of it in the past, one of you would need to obtain Don's permission, and if they're both willing, you'll be looking at a custom print whenever Burcham makes his next trip to the print shop.

    You're looking at a decent amount of effort and likely a higher price than normal if it's a one-off print, but if you really want the artwork for display, it's worth a shot! Good luck!

    Unless your at a convention where the artist is selling that particular print, your chances of getting it legally are next to zero :( 

    But it still can't hurt to ask IDW/Burchum. You never know what might happen. Good luck.

    Thank you very much for your replies fellas.

    I also like IDW Fort Max "on the receiving end" in MTMTE vol 4. I have the high-res comic from Comixology. I wonder could anyone recommend good high street printers in the UK?

    I found to pages on Ebay. Most of the art I got is from conventions but some I drew myself.

    I got both prints now and have to get them framed. Was thinking clip frames. I prefer glass instead of plastic but don't know where I can get these custom made.

    You can get them frame at an art store, framing shops, Micheals and Hobby Lobby. Just google it to see where the nearest location. Go with archival glass that protects the prints from UV and uh there are ready made frames that look same as a custom.

    I messaged Alex Milne in the hope he would be able to sell me an A3 print of this epic cover...
