Tomorrow Mondo will release an amazing new poster for a Spider-Man story that never was, by the spectacular Ciro Nieli.
Way back in 2006, before his work on two of the best animated series of all time, The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (2010) and TMNT (2012), Ciro was developing a pitch for an animated Spider-Man series. Last year, he shared some of his early sketchbook explorations for the design of Spidey and the Green Goblin, and Mondo was blown away. It took all of 3 seconds after seeing his post for Mondo to write him and ask if he ever had interest in doing a full screenprinted poster for ‘ol webhead.
From the start, Ciro had an awesome idea. People are obsessed with Marvel’s classic black light posters from the 70s, so Mondo used fluorescent inks to really make the colors sing.
“As a kid, I didn’t realize his impact on me, how that abstract Spidey mask would become the face I associated with so many ideas: pain, fear, responsibility, and triumph. I wanted this poster to capture how tortured the world of teen Peter Parker was and how this little spider could overcome any obstacle, no matter how big or terrifying.”
