Mondo ‘Man Of Steel’ Posters Are Predictably Super [Art]
With its limited supply of gorgeous Francesco Francavilla Black Beetle screen-printed posters completely sold out, Mondo has now turned its attention to this week’s release of Man of Steel. The preeminent curators and producers of original, high quality illustrated posters based on film and television properties, Mondo’s risen to the occasion of the Superman movie reboot with two new and extremely limited pieces by Ken Taylor and Martin Ansin, each depicting the titular Man of Steel in suitably iconic moments. Naturally both posters come with ultra-rare variants, including a “metal variant.”

Ken Taylor’s illustration of Clark Kent as a child is being offered by Mondo in the traditional fashion:
Edition: 300 (Regular) ; 150 (Variant)
Price: $50 (Regular) ; $75 (Variant)
The pieces will go on sale at a random time on Thursday, June 14. You’ll have to keep up with the Mondo Twitter feed to know exactly when that is.
Paying homage to Joe Shuster’s famous 1939 cover of Superman #1, Martin Ansin illustration of Superman is a completely different story. The metal variant will go on sale Friday, June 14, at a random time to be announced via the Mondo Twitter. But the regular, non-metal edition will be on sale for three whole days without any quantity limits, starting 12:01AM (CST) on Friday, June 14 and ending at 12:01AM Saturday, June 17. This means Mondo will produce as many posters as are ordered in that window. The posters’ specs and sale details are as follows:
Edition: Regular edition TBD ; 130 (Metal Variant)
Price: $50 (Regular) ; $300 (Metal Variant)
