MONDO To Release Batman: The Animated Series 12″ Die-Cut Single Designed By Phantom City Creative On November 14, 2014

MONDO will release the Batman: The Animated Series 12″ Die-Cut single on Friday November 14, 2014. The $25 single will be available as an open edition throughout the holiday season. The record is housed in an incredible gatefold jacket designed by Phantom City Creative and will be pressed on Black and Black with Gray Splatter vinyl.

Unlike MONDO’s record releases with randomly-inserted Variant pressings, you will have the option to purchase either (or both!) versions on the site.

In an effort to fulfill as many orders as possible before the holidays, MONDO has already pressed 1,000 copies of each version that are ready to ship out in the next few weeks. Once those copies are accounted for, the Die-Cut will become a Pre-Order that will be re-pressed as needed and shipped out after the New Year. MONDO will update the product page to say “Pre-Order” and make an announcement via Twitter as soon as the switchover occurs.

Please follow MONDO on Twitter for the on sale announcement. This record will be available online at a random time on Friday, November 14th.

Comic Book Artist Rafael Grampá Offers 10 Commissioned Art Pieces For Facebook Followers

On March 6, 2013 Rafael Grampá reached out to his Facebook followers with a very unique offer.

The Brazilian comic book artist decided to open his first commission list, allowing 10 lucky people to choose their favorite super hero/heroes for Grampá to render in his unique detailed style.

The result would be ten one of a kind drawings inked over pencils on 11×17 strathmore paper finished with Grampá’s distinctive “character head” signature.

The cost of the art piece was dependent on how many figures Rafael drew. A full body, single figure cost $1,000, two characters $1,800 and three characters $2,400.

Smart fans, savvy art collectors and shrewd investors immediately seized the rare opportunity to own an original piece by Grampá considering that the illustrator doesn’t sell any of his original work.

Within hours the ten spots on the list were full. Below are the commissioned drawings plus a couple of bonus pieces. Congratulations to the fortunate owners and hopefully time permitting Rafael will continue with more commissions!

Here is Rafael’s second commission – Batman emerges from the smoke, cape billowing, grappling gun in hand ready to take on an unseen assailant!  Apparently Rafael liked the rendering so much, he had a hard time parting with it. I love the details of the gloves, boots, gun and cape. The smoke provides an element of mystery and danger. Thank you Rafael, for doing such an amazing job. I will cherish this forever!

Yes, I am the lucky owner of commission # 2 and I feel like Charlie must have felt after he found the golden ticket in Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory.

The Official Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer & Poster

aoushh

Although it was supposed to premiere during next week’s new episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” Marvel Studios has gone ahead and officially released the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer following an online leak.

“Dammit, Hydra,” Marvel tweeted in response to the rapid spread of the leaked trailer.

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.

Avengers: Age of Ultron hits the big screen on May 1, 2015.
