New York Comic-Con has come and gone, bringing with it big movie news, TV news and lots and lots of collectibles. And while some booths chose to reveal their collectibles in advance, one that didn’t was the crew at Mondo. They preferred to keep their first trip to New York a well-kept secret until the convention opened on Thursday. Once that happened though, fans realized it was worth the wait as the famous poster boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse had brought posters from the Lord of the Rings, The Iron Giant, Shaun of the Dead, Kill Bill, Friday the 13th and more. That’s the good news. The better news is that not everything sold out so they’ll likely be online soon.

Artists Dave Perillo and Tom Whalen are big fans of ’80s pop culture. We know this not only because it’s the theme of their current Los Angeles art show, but also because they’ve each tackled one of the most popular properties of the decade exclusively for New York Comic-Con. Whalen has done two posters for Transformers (Autobots and Decepticons) and Perillo has done two for G.I. Joe (Joe and Cobra), all officially licensed by Hasbro. The Acid Free Gallery will be selling them at the convention, taking place October 11-14. See the full images below. Read More »

The bell is also the subject of the second poster in the Breaking Bad Art Project. Created by Tom Whalen, the slightly abstract poster takes a second to sink in but, once it does, all you’ll hear is that terrifyingly simple sound.
