Last month, Mondo and Cyclops Print Works revealed a new gallery show and it’s a doozy.

Mondo 2001 A Space Odyssey T-Shirt

There are plenty of clothing lines celebrating the biggest franchises in cinema today, from Star Wars to the Marvel Cinematic Universe to anything and everything related to LEGO. But the works of Stanley Kubrick don’t often get much in the vein of cool merchandise for cinephiles to show their love for the legendary filmmaker. Mondo is doing their best to combat that with a new line of clothing honoring one of Kubrick’s greatest contributions to film.

2001: A Space Odyssey is one of the most influential sci-fi films of all time, and now you can let everyone know that you’re all about putting your clothing to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

Check out the Mondo 2001 A Space Odyssey t-shirt collection below. Read More »

the thing board game

Welcome to Cardboard Cinema, a feature that explores the intersection between movies and tabletop gaming. This column is sponsored by Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy in Austin, Texas.

Mondo has built its reputation on creating objects of tangible, physical beauty: posters, t-shirts, pins, and toys, all of it geared toward pop culture-savvy individuals hungry for something unique. In many ways, their entry into the world of tabletop gaming was inevitable. The company has announced that they’re planning to release their first board game and it is based on one of the most beloved genre films of all time, John Carpenter’s 1982 classic, The Thing.

But speaking as someone with walls covered with Mondo prints and two massive shelves of board games, this is also the kind of announcement that makes me stroke my chin and go “Hmmm.”
