Superhero comic fans love alternate universes and the doppelgangers that reside within, which is part of the reason that Dan Slott and Olivier Coipel's "Spider-Verse" was such a hit. To celebrate the many incarnations of the webhead, Mondo have just released two limited edition prints by DKNG, along with a set of Spider-Verse themed enamel pins by Tom Whalen featuring Peter, Miles and Gwen.
Ghost In The Shell is on a lot of people's minds right now, and while the upcoming Scarlett Johansson-starring Western cinematic adaptation is garnering its fair share of controversy it has made people re-evaluate and reappraise their love for Masamune Shirow's classic manga. To celebrate the series, Mondo has teamed up with Kodansha Comics and Gotham Academy and Southern Cross' Becky Cloonan for a pair of exclusive prints, timed to go on sale at some point today.
This week sees the release of Legendary Pictures' Kong: Skull Island which sees Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson lead an expedition to the forgotten land where they discover the legendary beast which resides there. To celebrate the film's release, Mondo have commissioned superstar artist Francesco Francavilla for a limited edition print.
Back in 2014, Mondo released a Harley Quinn print by Matt Taylor at San Diego Comic-Con that was both beautiful and managed to capture Harley in a way we'd never really seen her before. The print was so popular, Mondo decided to make a statue capturing Harley Quinn in her room listening to her favorite records. We've seen the piece a few times now in prototype form, but now the pre-orders have opened, and we can't throw our money at the screen fast enough.
The Nickelodeon of the '90s is alive and well in the hearts and minds of a generation of fans, but thanks to the recent revival on The Splat, icons like Ren, Stimpy, Tommy Pickles, Rocko and Doug Funnie are thriving once again. With that in mind, Mondo's turned its attention to the network where sliming someone used to mean something. Just because you couldn't do that on television doesn't mean you can't do it at an art show.
Mondo, following the success of its vinyl soundtrack for Netflix and Marvel's Luke Cage, is publishing similar vinyl releases for Daredevil and Jessica Jones. The Daredevil Season One record features music by John Paesano, while the soundtrack to Jessica Jones Season One, a double album, is by Sean Callery. Both feature really striking cover art by Matthew Woodson.
Over the past 10 years, Francesco Francavilla emerged as one of the most unique and prolific artists of this generation, with a slew of credits at almost every major publisher and fans clamoring to see his gorgeous style on their favorite characters. Earlier this year, Mondo hosted a special gallery show celebrating his milestone. A frequent collaborator with the Austin art house, Francavilla will also be appearing at this weekend's MondoCon. ComicsAlliance caught up with Francavilla ahead of the event for a retrospective of his first decade in comics.
It won't be available till the middle of 2017, but the announcement of Mondo's Batman Red Rain statue still feels pretty seasonal in October. After all, this isn't just a Batman statue, it's a statue of Batman as an undead vampire, and a pretty creepy one at that.
Mondo has announced a sale of limited edition prints from its recent Francesco Francavilla art show, to be held on their website today, September 13. The prints include pieces featuring Batman, Captain America, the X-Men, and Archie. No specific time for the start of the sale has been given, but Mondo will make an announcement via its Twitter account.
Mondo certainly has a great eye for art, and not only does it help produce some of the coolest looking prints, statues, records and pretty much anything else it can get its hands on, it knows to celebrate great artists with free gallery shows highlighting the work of artists from across genres and mediums.
Later this month, Mondo will be hosting one of these gallery shows in its home base of Austin, Texas celebrating the work of Francesco Francavilla who this year is celebrating his tenth year as a comics professional. Also available at the show will be four limited edition screen prints highlighting the artist's range.
