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:
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.
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.)
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.
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.”
Grey Matter Art under license from Marvel, is proud to present two new officially licensed, limited edition screen printed posters for the iconic superheroes, “Ghost Rider & Dr. Strange. This is the third project Grey Matter Art has released under Marvel, and this time has chosen to work with the artist, Dave Perillo to bring you an amazing representation for these two great characters.
This poster will be released on Wednesday, July 01st. on our website shop page at a random time between 1:00-2:00 PM est. at www.greymatterart.com.

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.
Dark Hall Mansion in conjunction with its ongoing officially licensed “The Twilight Zone” subscription series, is very pleased to reveal our next guest-artist TZ release: “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up,” by leading contemporary artist, Dave Perillo. A charming and wacky piece that riffs in 12″ x 12″ vintage LP record cover format on a terrific and classic “Twilight Zone” episode, we think you’ll agree Dave’s artwork perfectly suits the somewhat manic quality of this humorous yet pensive episode.
Dark Hall Mansion, under license by CBS Consumer Products, will release Dave Perillo’s new “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up” limited edition prints next Tuesday, June 30th, 2015.
Artist Dave Perillo brings to bear the influence of one of his, and DHM’s, favorite artists, the enormously influential, Jim Flora. Flora’s unique and highly stylized jazz and pop record cover artwork of the ’40s and ’50s exploded with color and hyper-stylization influencing generations of illustrators in all fields, and Dave Perillo has done him justice! Formatted to appear as the vintage record cover you might always have wanted but not known existed, his 12″ x 12″ “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up” has all the earmarks of a classic jazz inflected cover from the ’50s while creatively rendering this classic TZ episode’s entire story arc and twist ending in one dynamic piece.
Dave’s standard edition hits all the right notes with its vintage LP color palette, one that not only tells the tale but brings forth some very special record cover artwork, from a unique locale indeed-one of sight, sound and mind, and one from where you might just see future Twilight Zone record cover offerings emanate from. To compliment, Dave’s Variant edition pops right off the cover with a color explosion that feels at once slightly frenetic and all cool jazz. There’s also two select wood editions based on the Standard and Variant colorways.
Dave Perillo’s Standard and Variant editions will first be made available for advance separate purchase to subscribers of DHM’s ongoing 10-print “Twilight Zone” subscription series (details of which are available here: http://www.darkhallmansion.com/?p=2269) And YES! Anyone purchasing a DHM “Twilight Zone” subscription series (while subscriptions last here: http://darkhallmansionstore.com) will be assured a reserve spot with the right, though not obligation, to separately purchase Dave Perillo’s “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up” print. Purchase of DHM’s Standard edition “Twilight Zone” subscription series entitles the buyer to all 10 prints in our TZ series (further details in DHM’s blog here: http://www.darkhallmansion.com/?p=2269) plus the right to separately purchase Dave’s standard edition “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up” print. Similarly, a purchase of the Variant “Twilight Zone” subscription series entitles the buyer to all 10 Variant prints in our TZ series, plus the right to separately purchase Dave’s Variant “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up” print.
