MONDO Announces 2015 San Diego Comic Con Exclusives

Best known for its popular limited-edition posters, MONDO the boutique arm of the Alamo Drafthouse theater chain has exclusive artwork available for attendees at San Diego Comic Con (July 8-12). Yet its booth in the San Diego Convention Center will also have new action figures, vinyl records and other merch for the geek crowd.

The exclusives include:

1-9ac6e3cb39

Ant-Man poster ($85). Mondo has a variety of pieces for sale as well as some licensing announcements in store, but one of the items of note to superhero fans will be a holofoil screen print (limited to 175) inspired by the new Ant-Man film (in theaters July 17). Artist Kevin Tong said he wanted the design “to show Ant-Man’s scale, the intensity of his transformation, and really just trying to make a poster as fun and dynamic as the movie.”

Ninja Turtles figures (price TBD).

After Mondo dipped its toes in the toy business beginning last Comic-Con, this summer brings the first in a new series of toys based on the original TMNT comics of the 1980s. First up is Leonardo, who stands 11 inches tall and comes with a bunch of accessories including weapons, a blue mask to match the cartoons and a red mask from the comics. Also on display will be the upcoming figures of Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael.

IMG_9387a_608a55bb-b682-4776-b8e6-2881b966db89_1024x1024
First Hellboy statue ($200). Before he became a comic-book hero and a movie star played by Ron Perlman, Hellboy was a black and white sketch done in 1991 by creator and artist Mike Mignola. Mondo’s created a polystone statue of this first pass at the horned hero — with the name “Hellboy” emblazoned on his belt — plus a variant color version done by original Hellboy colorist Dave Stewart. You can see him in San Diego but can’t take him home yet — interested parties can preorder Hellboy now at Mondo’s website. (Monster fiends will also want to stop by the booth to check out an upcoming Godzilla sculpture as well.)

635712870614004325-STAS-cover-disc

Superman vinyl ($25). Those with record players and a place in their heart for Shirley Walker’s theme composed for Superman: The Animated Series will want to pick up a die-cut single. Artwork for the cover is by Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative, and the record is cut in the shape of Superman’s iconic “S” shield — folks can choose between red vinyl or Kryptonite green.

635712869666879757-Aliens-Front-Cover

Aliens soundtrack ($35). This one’s special for fans of the late Oscar-winning composer James Horner, who died last week in a plane crash: A vinyl soundtrack of his score for James Cameron’s 1986 sci-fi flick Aliens. The deluxe edition features more than a dozen musical cues new to vinyl plus five bonus tracks, and a cover design by artist Killian Eng. “I wanted the alien to play a big role,” he said, “but at the same time incorporate its shape into the materials of the space station, almost like it becomes the station itself, keeping the marines in a steady merciless grip.”

Wendy’s Announces Baconator Fries

Wendy’s introduced new Baconator Fries today. The new menu item contain a delicious blend of warm cheddar cheese sauce, freshly-cooked Applewood smoked bacon and shredded cheddar cheese drizzled over Wendy’s natural-cut fries. The suggested price for the bacon fries is $1.99.

Wendy’s will showcase the way bacon should be made on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter through a video series that will launch on July 6. These tongue-in-cheek “after-school” special videos tap into 90s nostalgia trends, entitled Bacon: Scared Straight. The videos will feature bacon puppets voiced over by decorated cartoon actor Billy West, one of the lead voice actors for the show Futurama and the talent behind other memorable characters like Woody the Woodpecker, Ren & Stempy and Doug Funny. Through these farcical videos, “at-risk” bacon teens will be warned of bacon-related dangers that might prevent them from becoming Baconator worthy.

Spoke Art Announces UnReal Estate IV: The Movie By Tim Doyle Opening On July 2, 2015

tim_doyle_unreal_4_flyer-600x600

Spoke Art is pleased to welcome back gallery artist Tim Doyle for his fourth solo exhibition of his on-going “UnReal Estate” series. For this year’s installment, Doyle has tackled all new locations from cinema’s most popular cult classics, re-imagining their locales in his signature style.

“UnReal Estate IV: The Movie” is a complete transformation from previous years, shifting the artist’s focus towards the big screen. Paying homage to some of cinema’s iconic locations, Doyle is able to reconstruct these landscapes in his personal surreal style. One could say that the environments of these movies are just as important as the characters that inhabit them. Doyle has not limited himself to one genre but rather explored a multitude of different films, covering everything from Miyazaki’s inspired “Sprited Away” to Tarantino’s edgy “Pulp Fiction”.

Since it’s debut in 2012, the “UnReal Estate” series has been a massive success, with all three previous shows selling out in full. For “UnReal Estate IV: The Movie” Doyle has interpreted a wide range of iconic movie locales, ranging from contemporary to classical. Through the artist’s perspective, we are given a glimpse into Doyle’s alternate cinematic view, completely recognizable yet entirely original.

Comprised of a total of ten designs, Doyle has created both original pen and ink drawings as well as hand-pulled screen prints (with accompanying variant editions) Starting with hand-drawn illustrations, Doyle then scans and digitally colors in his original illustrations. From there he screen-prints all his editions in-house at his Austin studio, Nakatomi. With immense precision and craftsmanship, Doyle utilizes clever printing techniques such as split fountains andglow in the dark inks to add a special element to each design. A veritable display, “UnReal Estate IV: The Movie” truly showcases the artist’s ranging talents as both anillustrator and screen-printer.

Limited edition prints will be available first to attendees of the July 2nd opening reception, with remaining copies available online the following week. As a special treat to all attendees, there will be an exclusive limited edition give-away print, only available to the first 50 people at the opening. The artist will be in attendance and complimentary beverages will be served.
