Dark Hall Mansion is so very excited to share one of their absolute favorite releases ever, Max Dalton’s “The Jimi Hendrix Experience.”
Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Authentic Hendrix, will release 3 very special, limited, and select edition prints of Max’s interpretation of Jimi Hendrix within a particularly intimate and quite unusual setting. Max’s vision is informed and shaped not only as artist but as a longtime guitar player himself, his admiration and respect for Jimi’s music and influence, both as guitarist and artist, is also equally undeniable. Max’s vision of Jimi before a wall of guitars, all specifically known to have been owned and played by Jimi, is simply fantastic. From the faded wallpaper and still burning classic axe to Jimi’s gear and stylish hat, it’s soulful, the very essence of Jimi.
“The Jimi Hendrix Experience” limited edition prints go on sale next Wednesday, October 29th on Dark Hall Mansion’s dedicated store page here: http://www.darkhallmansionstore.com/ at a random time between 9:30 AM PST and 12 PM PST.

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.
Comic Con Experience reveals the artwork for the official event poster created by internationally renowned Brazilian comic book artists, Ivan Reis and Rafael Grampá, both confirmed guests at CCXP, with colors by Marcelo Costa. The poster was created in an exclusive agreement between CCXP and DC Comics, the publisher owned by Time Warner which owns the rights to classic characters, such as Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, and Batman.
The poster will be seen in promotional items for CCXP, including t-shirts sold exclusively at the event, on the cover of the CCXP program guide, and on promotional posters to be handed out to visitors who have acquired Fan or Full Experience packages.
“Batman is a pop icon and by celebrating its 75th anniversary CCXP is also celebrating pop culture as a whole”, explains Ivan Costa, business partner in CCXP.
The character that first appeared in Detective Comics# 27, in 1939, turns 75 in top form and in every medium: the film Batman v. Superman is one of the most eagerly anticipated in the years to come, the Fox TV series Gotham premiered successfully in the USA last week, and the games Batman: Arkham are a commercial and critical success, while he is a constant presence in comics, and in a multitude of products.
The poster features several innovations: it presents, in a single image, the artwork by two top artists with very different styles. Additionally, the poster refers back to the classic DC covers from the beginning of the Silver Age, in the 1960s, when the editor Julius Schwartz would often have the covers produced before the issue itself, challenging his writers to come up with stories based on the covers. This technique was responsible for a lot of classic covers and for one of the most creative periods – and a certain nonsense that was typical of the time – in the history of DC Comics.
