Mondo and Captain America: The First Avenger are taking over San Diego Comic-Con. The limited edition poster boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse, whose prints are now being archived by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, has six brand new Cap themed posters: two by Eric Tan, two by Olly Moss and two by Tyler Stout.
One of the premiere poster artists on the market today, Stout’s detailed, jam-packed prints can go for upwards of $2,000 a piece and his art was recently used for the cover of Marvel’s Captain America: First Vengeance #4. Now he’s expanded that image into a jaw-dropping representation of the upcoming Joe Johnston film. Check out both images after the jump.
Here is the regular and variant image.
The regular, with all the colors, is a 24″ x 36″ screenprint, edition of 650 and will cost $50, The variant, the silver one, is also a 24″ x 36″screenprint, edition of 220 and will $100. The sale date is still to be determined so follow @MondoNews for updates.
As a huge Stout fan, what more can you say? These are classic and iconic, perfectly Stout and perfectly paired with his Iron Man 2 poster he did a few years ago. I love these prints.
Here’s the info on the other Cap prints that Mondo is releasing. Will they first appear at Comic Con? Probably, but we don’t know for sure yet.
- Olly Moss — two WWII propaganda posters (one for US, one for Hydra), Two 18″ x 24″ Screenprints, Editions of 375 (each), $85 per set. Sale date — TBD. Follow @MondoNews for updates. See the images on Badass Digest.
- Eric Tan — two WWII propaganda posters (one for US, one for Hydra), Two 18″ x 24″ Screenprints, Editions of 220 (each), $80 per set. Sale date — TBD. Follow @MondoNews for updates. See the images on Wired.com.
This is the first year that Mondo is having a booth at Comic Con (#433) and in addition to all these new prints, they’re really going above and beyond to create a fervor in the poster community. They’ve promised to bring a bunch of previously sold out archived posters, artists will be stopping by to do signings and, they’ll release these posters (and possibly more) at various times on various days. You can read the Mondo Blog for some more information but, really, the best thing to do is to follow @MondoNews on Twitter.
What do you think of these Stout images?
