Next year marks the 70th anniversary of Charles M. Schulz‘s beloved comic strip Peanuts, featuring that lovable, inexplicably eccentric and stressed out boy named Charlie Brown. To celebrate this milestone anniversary a little early, Mondo is hosting “It’s an Art Show, Charlie Brown,” which is an art gallery show that will be full of iconic panels from the original comic strip that have been turned into screenprinted posters for fans to purchase.

In its fifth year, MondoCon is bigger than ever. In the convention’s program, co-founder and creative director Mitch Putnam mentioned this year’s con is “the first time it actually feels like we’ve hit our full potential.” Honestly, I couldn’t agree more. Movie, music, and comic book fans love Mondo for all of the rad collector items they make. Hell, I’m one of them. People line up for hours (and even camp out overnight) to get their hands on the latest releases, and this year was no different. I had the pleasure of attending this year’s two-day convention, which by far was their biggest and best event yet.

In case you hadn’t heard, Mondo will slowly be releasing all of the soundtracks to the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. They started with a bit of a softball by releasing Ant-Man and the Wasp back in April, but now they’re giving one of Marvel’s best soundtracks the vinyl treatment.
Ludwig Göransson‘s score for Black Panther pulses and thumps into your ears throughout blockbuster superhero movie, and now you can finally bring it home to your stereo system on a new collectible Mondo vinyl soundtrack featuring the complete score on a 3xLP. Check out the new Mondo Black Panther vinyl soundtrack below. Read More »

One lucky winner could score both of these items – it could even be you. Details below. Read More »
A couple of years ago, Mondo – the company best known for selling stylish pop culture art – expanded out into creating board games, including one based on the John Carpenter film The Thing. The company has released a few other games since then, but perhaps none as interesting as Unmatched, which is a collaboration with Restoration Games. The tabletop/card game is a game system in which players move miniatures around on a board while using cards to attack and defend, and the game’s title comes from its ridiculous match-ups of characters: Robin Hood vs. Bigfoot, for example.
Soon, some of the characters from Steven Spielberg’s 1993 classic Jurassic Park will become playable characters in Unmatched – yes, including the film’s raptors. Get the details about this new Jurassic Park Mondo collaboration below. Read More »
When it comes to collectible art and vinyl soundtracks commemorating our favorite films and television shows, there’s almost no one better than Mondo. But every now and then, the company also likes to dip their toe into the collectible toy arena, and sometimes they do it in a truly weird way that only Mondo can deliver. And that’s what brings us to their latest endeavor: Mondoids.
The new Mondoids are said to come from the planet Mondoida, and they’ve come to our planet to make friends and eat snacks. That might be hard though since they appear as gnarly, slimy, gross versions of characters from Gremlins, Friday the 13th, Jurassic Park, Marvel Comics, and more. Get a look at the first wave of Mondoids figures available now. Read More »
