Mondo’s Inaugural ‘MondoCon’ To Celebrate Film, Art, Toys And More In Austin This September
Mondo, the boutique merchandise arm of the celebrated Austin movie theater the Alamo Drafthouse, has developed a reputation over the years for super-cool movie posters and art prints. Now, it's got a convention to showcase even more cool art.
MondoCon will take place at Austin’s Marchesa Hall & Theater September 20 and 21, and the guest list is pretty amazing: It includes Hellboy creator Mike Mignola (who just created a new, amazing Bride of Frankenstein poster for Mondo), Afterlife With Archie's Francesco Francavilla, revered horror artist Bernie Wrightson, Shaolin Cowboy creator Geof Darrow, ComicsAlliance favorite Jock, Mondo's animated Batman poster designers Phantom City Creative, and a bunch more.
Tickets for the convention go on sale Wednesday at Mondo-Con.com. They're $35 for a single day and $70 for the full weekend.
