Though two recent remakes have tarnished the original’s reputation a tad, the 1981 Clash of the Titans remains a cult classic. Featuring Ray Harryhausen’s final visual effects, the film follows a hero named Perseus on an epic quest pitting him against Gods and monsters. It’s total Eighties cheese, but that lends itself perfectly to artist interpretation. Which is where Mondo comes in, as the outfit has chosen the film for two posters to kick off its 2014 offerings. They also just announced a mysterious event called Mondo Con that’ll take place in Austin, TX September 20-21, smack dab in the middle of Fantastic Fest.

If we’re lucky, every few months a poster is released that makes you step back from your computer and stare. A poster so gorgeous, fans and non-fans a like will bask in its beauty. Some previous examples are Olly Moss’s Star Wars posters, Ken Taylor’s Halloween poster, Tyler Stout’s Akira, Aaron Horkey’s There Will be Blood and now, you can add Tom Whalen‘s The Wizard of Oz to the list.
Whalen has long been a favorite, both here on /Film and in galleries across the country. Working consistently for Mondo and Gallery 1988 has helped the Pennsylvania-based artist develop quite a following and, as fantastic as his work always is, this poster – made for Mondo – takes the cake. It’s epic, evocative and sure to be incredibly difficult to obtain.
Check out the full image after the jump along with another new Whalen poster from, for the Looney Tunes short Knighty Knight Bugs, as well as two comic-themed posters for The Black Beetle by Francesco Francavilla. Read More »
UPDATE: We’ve added three new images.
It’s the gallery show they were was born to do. In the past, Mondo has released posters for all the Universal Monsters: Dracula, Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Phantom of the Opera, The Invisible Man and The Mummy. Obviously, they’re monster fans, and after Mondo opened their own gallery, it was only a matter of time before the monsters took over that space. That time is now.
The Universal Monsters show at the Mondo Gallery opens on Friday October 19 and it’ll feature new work not only by top Mondo artists such as Martin Ansin, Kevin Tong, Ken Taylor, Jason Edminson, Rich Kelly, Phantom City Creative and JC Richard, living legends Rick Baker and Drew Struzan will also have work in the show. Yes, the Oscar winning makeup artist and greatest poster artist ever, returning just as we said he would.
After the jump, check out three of Struzan’s seven original pieces from the show, three of the additional posters that’ll be on display, and find out what the next show might be. (Hint: In England. Olly Moss.) Read More »

On Wednesday, you knew it was going to be big. Game of Thrones and two different posters for The Dark Knight Rises were just the tip of the iceberg. The Mondo Booth at San Diego Comic-Con 2012 was a must visit during the convention, featuring hundreds of eager fans rabidly anticipating the next of several random surprise releases. Lines caused major problems with security and with the schedules of Con attendees desperate to get one of these posters but, mostly, people left happy. Some of the highlights included a Lord of the Rings trilogy set by J.C. Richard, Princess Mononoke by Olly Moss, Lego Lord of the Rings by Kevin Tong, several Adventure Time pieces and even a surprise visit by Guillermo Del Toro to autograph Mimic by Jay Shaw.
