As San Diego Comic-Con heads into its final day and the weary con-goers tape up their blisters for six or seven last tromps around the crowded con floor, let's enjoy a moment of tranquil reverie and appreciate the majestic beauty of the limited edition Guardians Of The Galaxy posters from Mondo, the art boutique wing of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, Texas.
The Mondo posters by artists Francesco Francavilla, Kevin Tong, Randy Ortiz, Vance Kelly, Mike Mitchell, and Phantom City Creative, are available exclusively from Mondo at Booth 835 at prices ranging from $35 to $75 - or were. It is Sunday, after all. You'll have to stop by or follow @MondoNews on Twitter to see if there's anything left.
Purveyors of extremely fine illustrated film posters and other cinematic and pop cultural celebrations, Mondo has been increasing its exquisitely curated presence in the comic book world. The boutique merchandise arm of the celebrated Austin movie theater the Alamo Drafhouse, Mondo has in the last several months hosted a 20th anniversary screening of Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (with limited edition poster), presented a gallery show of Marvel Comics artwork by Mike MItchell, offered a gorgeous Elektra poster by Craig Drake, a Harley Quinn poster by Phantom City Creative, launched new convention, MondoCon, announced with new artwork by Mike Mignola, and announced a series of vinyl records celebrating music from Batman: The Animated Series.
It comes as only the best kind of surprise that Mondo will expand its operations into the realm of collectible toys, and the company has some auspicious products to announce its arrival in the new space. In addition to a vinyl figure based directly off of Kevin Eastman's very first drawing of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, Mondo will release what's perhaps the most handsome collectible ever for The Iron Giant; a 16" figure with numerous accessories that's a fitting tribute to Brad Bird's excellent film about a killer robot inspired to heroism by Superman comic books.
The boutique merchandise arm of the celebrated Austin movie theater the Alamo Drafhouse, Mondo's about to level up with its most ambitious music plan yet: a series of vinyl-only releases of Danny Elfman's music from Batman: The Animated Series.
We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.
Purveyors of extremely fine illustrated film posters and other cinematic and pop cultural celebrations (such as the Batman: Mask of the Phantasm 20th anniversary screening), Mondo has announced its next comic book-inspired event will be an exhibition of portraits of Marvel Comics characters illustrated by artist Mike MItchell. Running from April 25 through May 17 at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas, Mitchell's show, officially called “Mike Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo,” will include pieces inspired by the Avengers, X-Men, Spider-Man and more. Read on for an exclusive peek at some of the excellent pieces on offer.
Marvel's big-screen incarnations of Steve Rogers and The Red Skull in Captain America: The First Avenger look absolutely nothing like their counterparts in the art of visual warlock Mike Mitchell. If, how
