Dark Hall Mansion’s yearly holiday tradition continues with the timeless classic that’s informed Christmas and the holiday season for almost 50 years, Charles M. Schulz’s 1965 masterpiece, “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” this year beautifully and evocatively rendered by artist, Nicolas Delort. Flawlessly written by Charles Schulz, beautifully directed and animated by Bill Melendez and team, and of course, brilliantly scored by Vince Guaraldi, this film, perhaps more than any other, quietly, humorously, and evocatively reminds us in poetic and lyrical fashion just what the true meaning of Christmas really is.
Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Peanuts Worldwide, takes us back to our collective memory of gathering about the TV while awaiting Christmas and the holidays and having Guaraldi’s first gentle jazz passages signal the season truly was upon us. Charles M. Schulz’s 1965 masterpiece is timeless, precisely because its profound emotional resonance is as relevant today as it will be in another fifty years and beyond. Artist Nicolas Delort, who brought such pathos to Dark Hall Mansion’s “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” again brings his distinctive and highly detailed style to bear rendering Charlie’s contemplation of the true meaning of Christmas a quiet and personal one.

Odd City, in partnership with the Paramount Pictures Licensing, is proud to announce a limited edition screen print for Francis Ford Coppola’s classic, The Godfather, by Laurent Durieux. This 1972 film, adapted for the screen by Coppola, is widely considered the most influential film in the gangster genre. Artist Laurent Durieux, in his distinctive style, has captured a turning point moment from the film.
The Laurent Durieux Godfather prints will be in a regular edition, variant edition and wood edition. The wood edition will have the regular edition color way.
These prints represent the first set of three, one for each of the three films.
Here is what the artist had to say about this special project:
“The Godfather films are amongst my favorite movies of all time, period. I grew up with these movies. So many movies are referring to GF nowadays, and fantastic TV shows like The Sopranos (which I love) hint constantly to the masterpieces from Francis Ford Coppola. The Godfather inhabits us all. It’s part of our general culture. It should be taught at school! It is such a milestone in cinema history too! It’s really impossible to say anything negative about The Godfather. It doesn’t get any better than this!”
All editions are printed by SP Productions in Brussels and will be personally signed and numbered by Laurent Durieux. These prints are expected to begin shipping the first week of December
The Laurent Durieux Godfather prints will go on sale Monday, November 17, 2014 on the Odd City Store around 11am CST, and will begin shipping the first week of December 2014.

Here’s what Matt had to say about the poster:
“BTTF is basically my dream project and as such is utterly terrifying, because it is embedded in the public consciousness and has it’s own library of iconography that even people who haven’t seen the film will know. On top of that, the previous BTTF series at Mondo are amongst the highlights of their output – so a little bit of extra pressure to live up to there.
For my design, I went back to Struzan’s original concept posters – there is a great one with Marty vanishing from the feet up, and as soon as I saw it I knew that I wanted to use it as my starting point. I think PCC and Laurent have closed the book on using the Delorean so I deliberately stayed away from that and focused instead on Marty and his instantly recognisable features. I used the title block from the original poster and stripped out the rest of the type so that the image stood alone on the page. I’m really happy with how it turned out and I hope that the Mondo faithful dig it as well.”
Be sure to stay tuned to Twitter to find out when Back to the Future will become available at the convention.
