Mondo Gets it Together for its New Ramona Flowers Figure [Exclusive]

Mondo
Mondo

Last July, Mondo hit San Diego Comic-Con hard with the first looks at a number of all-new toys and statues from its collectibles division. Though the Austin-based art gallery built its reputation on curating original screen prints for films, recent years have seen Mondo expand its horizons to clothing, music and figures. Many of the collectibles on display last year were in their earliest stages, and merely shown to give a glimpse into the future of Mondo's plans.

While figures like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Baby Hellboy have since been announced, many of us have been waiting for the Scott Pilgrim vs The World Ramona Flowers collectible figure to arrive. Today, we can exclusively announce the details and offer the first official images of Mondo's Ramona Flowers collectible figure.

The Art of Color: Nathan Fairbairn and Lighting for Location

artofcolor-fairbairn

While there are many different qualities that a colorist brings to a comic book, one of the most beneficial and subtle effects is the effect a good colorist can have on the line art, shaping a good artist into a great artist and a great artist's work into something transcendent. Unless you're consistently comparing the black & white original pages to the finished color versions, it can occasionally be difficult to accurately assess what a colorist is really doing to change the work.

Thankfully, Nathan Fairbairn is not only one of the best collaborators in the comics industry, he also dedicates time to showing the color theory and thinking that goes into his process on his Tumblr; an indispensible resource for anyone interested in learning more about colorists and comics coloring.

Jason Fischer Shares The Life Of A Drawing Assistant In ‘Seconds Helping’

secondshelpings-feat

If you read Bryan Lee O'Malley's 2014 graphic novel Seconds --- and given that it was one of the most anticipated comics of that year, chances are you did --- then one of the first things you may have noticed that differentiated it from Scott Pilgrim was that O'Malley wasn't the one-man band he was on his name-making graphic novel series.

While O'Malley still wrote and penciled all of Seconds, the title page credits three other contributors: colorist Nathan Fairbairn, letterer Dustin Harbin, and drawing assistant Jason Fischer. Those first two job titles will be familiar to anyone who has followed mainstream American comics, as they're among the handful of credits that appear in most of the books created in the chopped-up, parceled-out system established in the Golden Age. But "drawing assistant"...? What exactly is a drawing assistant? Jason Fischer himself answers that with Seconds Helping: A Drawing Assistant's Memoir Comic.
