Mondo Gallery’s “Snikt. Bamf. Thwip: A Celebration of Marvel Comics” Show Opens December 11, 2015


This December, Mondo plans on going out in style… Marvel House Style that is. On December 11, 2015 the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas will kick of a nine-day exhibit focused exclusively on Marvel called “Snikt. Bamf. Thwip: A Celebration of Marvel Comics.” It’s the final gallery show of the 2015 calendar year for Mondo, and it will feature more than a dozen different artists from the Mondo family contributing works celebrating more than 75 years of Marvel’s comic and cinematic history.

In addition to making limited edition prints and posters, action figures and vinyl records, Mondo’s Austin home is quite often used to exhibit art shows that fit in tune with the company’s personality. Previously this year, the Gallery hosted a show themed around Jurassic Park, and in 2014, ran a showing of Mike Mitchell’s Marvel portraits. Mondo’s events truly run the gamut of pop culture, and this upcoming Marvel show should be no exception.

Becky Cloonan
Sam Wolfe Connelly
Craig Drake
Francesco Francavilla

Gallery 1988 Announces Crazy For Cult 9 Opening On November 20, 2015


Gallery 1988 announces their most explosive, and technically biggest, show of the year: the annual art exhibit that spawned a million galleries – Crazy4Cult. Entering it’s 9th year, this installment may just be the best ever. With a line-up that consists of 219 artists, the pieces for this show are outstanding. Even with almost 10 years in the books, artists are finding new and creative ways to put a creative spin on their favorite cult movie classics.

The exhibit, originally the first of it’s kind, will feature paintings, prints, sculptures and plush depicting characters, scenes and iconic imagery from your favorite flicks. This year the show standards are still represented, like Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, Edward Scissorhands and The Goonies – but new additions like Spaceballs, Clueless and Weird Science found their way into the hodgepodge of influence.

The tradition will open this Friday, November 20th, from 7-10 PM at G1988 (West), 7308 Melrose Ave. This show will be on display until Dec 5th. Artwork will be available first at the gallery Friday night, but then online to purchase, at, Saturday, November 21st.

MONDO Gallery Presents Originals: A Fine Art Show Opening On November 13, 2015


MONDO is doing something unprecedented for their next event, “Originals: A Fine Art Show.” Their gallery has celebrated Disney characters, Marvel superheroes, Universal Monsters, Game of Thrones, Cinematic Villains, Batman, and now they turn to the artists themselves for inspiration, unleashed to produce original works of art and screen prints with complete artistic freedom. “Originals: A Fine Art Show” will open on Friday, November 13, 2015 and run until Saturday, December 5, 2015 at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX.

MONDO loves movies, comics, TV and have equal passion for the artists that produce beautiful representations of the pop culture things they love. For this show they’ve set the artists loose to create anything they want with only one rule – no pop culture allowed. The result is one of the strongest lineups of artist the gallery has ever produced.

“We’ve become known for showcasing artistic interpretations of licensed properties, but we also want people to know that these same artists are sometimes even more exciting when they are presenting their own narrative. Our gallery will always be focused on films, TV, comics, etc, but that is all off limits this month,” said Creative Director Mitch Putnam.

The show will feature dozens of original artwork and screen prints.

As revealed this morning by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, Kane will be receiving a posthumous star in the category of Motion Pictures for his creation of Batman—a character who has successfully made the leap from comics to film more times than any other Super Hero.

The ceremony will take place on October 21, 2015 at 11:30 a.m. PST and will feature both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice filmmaker Zack Snyder and DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee as guest speakers, as well as the Batman v Superman Batmobile.

While a star on one of Hollywood’s most famous landmarks is already an amazing achievement, it’s actually not the only one that the Dark Knight will be earning that day. The character will also be awarded the Guinness World Records Title for “Most Film Adaptations of a Comic Book Character.”

Unique giveaways are planned for fans in attendance and costumes are encouraged, especially Batman costumes. If you’re a Batman cosplayer or just happen to have an old Batman Halloween costume in your closet, feel free to wear it.

The ceremony will be located at 6764 Hollywood Blvd. in front of the Guinness World Record Museum.
