Mondo Announces ‘The Art of Jock’ Retrospective


Not content with a comic book career that includes DC Entertainment’s Batman and The Losers, 2000AD’s Judge Dredd and his creator-owned Wytches, Jock has also created concept artwork for a number of movies including Ex Machine, X-Men: Days of Future Past and the Dark Knight trilogy. Now, a new career retrospective from Mondo will reveal even more of the British artist’s work.

The collection, tentatively titled The Art of Jock, will feature material from throughout the artist’s entire career from 2000AD through a long collaboration with DC Entertainment (including work on Green Arrow: Year One and Hellblazer) to his movie work. It marks a continuation of his relationship with Mondo, for which he’s previously created limited edition artwork for a number of movies, including The Thing, Zero Dark Thirty and Iron Man 3.

While this exhibition marks the first full career retrospective for Jock, it’s not the first time his movie work has seen print; 2000AD has previous published a collection of his Dredd concept art to accompany Alex Garland’s script for the 2012 movie, as well as a limited-edition portfolio of his Ex Machina work for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

The book — Mondo’s first, created in partnership with Insight Editions — continues the expansion of the company known primarily for its screen print artwork for classic and contemporary movie, TV show and comic book properties. In recent months, the Austin, Texas house has experimented with action figures, clothing (including some amazing holiday sweaters) and vinyl soundtrack releases.

“I’m so proud to be working with my friends at Mondo and Insight to put together the first extensive collection of my work,” Jock said in a statement. “It’s been a labor of love for months already, and we can’t wait to share more details. We’re working hard to make this as special an edition as it can be.”

The Art of Jock is scheduled for release September 2016.(reprinted from The Hollywood Reporter)

Pepsi Goes ‘Back To The Future’ With Pepsi Perfect Collectible Bottle


Pepsi is going ‘Back to the Future’ with a new promotion.

Fans of the iconic film trilogy will no doubt remember Marty McFly walking into a diner to purchase a Pepsi in ‘Back to the Future II’ and walking out with a Pepsi Perfect. While Pepsi isn’t launching a new brand, it is releasing a new limited edition bottle October 21, 2015 to let fans have their own Pepsi Perfect bottle.

“Fans have always been a little crazy about it,” says Lou Arbetter, PepsiCo’s senior director of marketing, about the scene in the film where a Pepsi Perfect is delivered to Michael J. Fox’s character through a futuristic pneumatic tube, “and so we wanted to take advantage of the fact that Marty travelled to the future, to this month, and wanted to actually come out with the product.”

The bottle is a limited edition collectible — Pepsi is planning on only making a run of 6,500 bottles — and will be sold only while supplies last. Those looking to purchase the bottle can do so for $20.15, not quite as pricey as the $50 that Christopher Lloyd’s Doc Brown gave Marty in the film. The bottle will be sold online, though Pepsi recommends fans check out the company’s social media pages closer to the Oct. 21 launch date to know exactly where they can purchase it.

While it won’t be coming with a new Pepsi Perfect flavor there will be more traditional Pepsi Made with Real Sugar inside for fans to drink out of the 16.9-ounce bottle.

“We’re fans of this popular trilogy, and just generally, if you work at Pepsi you’re fans of pop culture. The brand has made its mark in pop culture frankly since Michael Jackson moonwalked. We’ve been dancing in and around pop culture for a while,” Arbetter says. “So we look at this as another opportunity to have a little bit of fun.”

Pepsi will also be distributing 1,500 Pepsi Perfect bottles ahead of its general release during New York Comic Con this week to fans dressed as Marty looking to “complete their outfit,” Arbetter says.

Pepsi is part of a growing list of companies joining in on the fun of the original film’s 30th anniversary. In January, Nike announced that they would be releasing a version of its self-lacing Nike Mag shoes that were featured in Back to the Future II later this year, while Reston, Va., will be renaming itself “Hill Valley” in honor of the film from Oct. 21 to Oct. 25. Movie theater chain AMC will be hosting all-day screenings of the trilogy Oct. 21 and Amazon will be streaming all three films to users of its Prime Video subscription service throughout October.

Dark Hall Mansion Announces 2 Special Iron Giant Prints

Dark Hall Mansion is pleased to release the officially licensed Brad Bird “Iron Giant: Signature Edition” print and metal series along with DHM’s Jeff Granito “Iron Giant” limited editions, all on sale this Friday, October 2, 2015!

Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Warner Bros Entertainment, will release these special Brad Bird editions in conjunction with “Iron Giant’s” limited in-theater screenings with Fathom Events around the country as well as Warner Bros high definition re-release of the “Iron Giant: Signature Edition” movie. The artwork for these select editions was developed by the Warner Bros artist team and director Brad Bird (“Tomorrowland,” “The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille”) was instantly taken, personally requesting it be released as a fine art edition. Dark Hall Mansion is honored to have gotten the call from Warner Bros and proud to release two select editions: the Brad Bird Standard 18″ x 24″ edition, hand numbered and beautifully printed on rich paper, and an 18″ x 24″ hand numbered edition printed on metal.

DHM is also pleased to reveal their officially licensed “Iron Giant” limited edition print release by contemporary artist, Jeff Granito. A striking piece that addresses the “Iron Giant’s” duality, one powerfully voiced in Hogarth’s informing his otherworldly friend, “You are who you choose to be,” the piece also addresses humankind’s relationship not only to the “Iron Giant” but to those choices we make for ourself and our world. Artist Jeff Granito beautifully and evocatively encapsulates high science, the pastoral, and those very choices within each of his editions while never forgetting the charm and love that informs the “Iron Giant’s” relationship with Hogarth. Jeff’s Standard edition deftly splits the “Iron Giant’s” dual nature with gorgeous use of color and composition, while his Variant edition deliberately echoes a retro B&W Sci-Fi vibe, and his most select, Jeff’s “Iron Giant” metal edition, has a beautiful and unique color scheme all its own. All Granito “Iron Giant” editions measure 18″ x 24.”

All officially licensed Brad Bird “Iron Giant: Signature Edition” prints and metal editions, as well as Jeff Granito’s “Iron Giant” limited editions go on sale this Friday, Oct 2 at 9:30 AM PST on our dedicated store page here:
