Ratatouille and Batman Returns Vinyl Soundtrack

Justice League hits theaters this weekend, and Pixar’s Coco arrives just before Thanksgiving next week. So the folks at Mondo are celebrating by honoring the movies that came before them with a couple new vinyl soundtrack releases.

Danny Elfman‘s theme for Batman makes a small resurgence on the Justice League soundtrack from the composer, and now his outstanding score for Batman Returns is getting a vinyl release at Mondo. On top of that, Pixar’s delicious Ratatouille soundtrack is also getting a limited edition vinyl soundtrack. Check out both of the outstanding Mondo releases below. Read More »

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.

It poster 4

Pennywise the clown is an iconic image of horror. Starting next week, if director Andy Muschietti‘s adaptation of Stephen King‘s It is as scary as the early buzz indicates, the shape-shifting clown will continue to live on in nightmares (and hopefully in a sequel). The movie is on track to be a big hit at the box office, so the character could become more popular than ever. Before Pennywise terrorizes the children of Derry, Maine, you can find the clown all over the place in Gallery1988 this weekend in Los Angeles, where a can’t-miss It themed exhibit is taking place.

Below, check out some terrific It posters from Gallery1988, Mondo, and more.

Ken Taylor Guardians of the Galaxy 2

San Diego Comic-Con is officially over and all the attendees are back home with plenty more things than they came to the convention with. Some lucky attendees with enough time to wait in line for an extended period of time went home with the latest artwork from Mondo. Sadly, that means there’s a lot of great artwork that fans stuck at home won’t be able to get their hands on, but there is at least one offering you can take advantage of outside of the massive convention.

Mondo debuted a new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 print at SDCC by artist Ken Taylor, and while one of the editions of that print was only available at their booth, there is a timed edition that you can get your hands on as long as you purchase it in the next few days. Check out the Ken Taylor Guardians of the Galaxy 2 print below and find out how to get one. Read More »

You can bet the line will be long over at the Mondo booth, where the pop culture collectible house always unleashes a slew of items that you can only get at the convention (some of which we’ve already exclusively revealed), and a handful of new ones were just revealed today.

If you head over to the Mondo booth during San Diego Comic-Con, there will be new prints commemorating Hot Fuzz, Guardians of the Galaxy, Legion, and more. There’s also a very special limited edition vinyl release for one of those movies that will sell out insanely fast, I’m sure. Check out the new Mondo SDCC 2017 exclusives below. Read More »
