mondo universal monsters show

The last time Mondo put together a gallery show celebrating the Universal Studios monsters, it was 2012 and it set a high bar for all of their future events. And now, their second monsters-centric show is here and it resets the bar again.

Mondo’s latest gallery, dedicated to Frankenstein, Dracula, the Wolf Man, the Mummy, and the rest of that creepy and unnervingly sympathetic family of things that go bump in the night, opened tonight and it’s spectacular. You can check out all of the posters that debuted below.

MondoCon is one of the best places on the planet to check out and purchase pop culture art. However, it is also a destination for those interested in pop culture art that never actually made it to the printer.

At the annual Mondo Talk panel, the Mondo brain trust revealed posters and art for movies like Doctor Strange and TV shows like Stranger Things that never came to fruition. Some of the posters stalled because they couldn’t come together creatively. Others became tangled in licensing red tape. A few of them never came together because people simply stopped answering emails. But you can check them out, in all of their sometimes unfinished glory, below.

mondocon 2017

Over the past four years, MondoCon has become one of my favorite places to spend money.

There. It’s out in the open. To go to MondoCon with an empty wallet is to have a bad time at MondoCon, the Austin-based celebration of pop culture art and collectibles organized by Mondo, the Austin-based celebrators of pop culture art and collectibles. It’s a convention made for movie fans with a little bit of disposable income and a fair amount of wall space. To attend and not spend money would be like going to the beach and not wading into the water.

But here’s the thing: I don’t feel bad about spending money at MondoCon. It’s hard to be in a room surrounded by some of the most talented artists in the world and not want to bring some of it home with you. And with the 2017 edition of the convention being the best one yet, I imagine I’ll be making my credit card wince here for the foreseeable future.
