Mondo is celebrating the 35th anniversary of one of the greatest science fiction films of all time – director Robert Zemeckis and screenwriter Bob Gale’s iconic, endlessly quotable, sci-fi comedy masterpiece Back To The Future.
This week Mondo will release a brand-new poster exploring Hill Valley from artist Adam Simpson. Simpson’s latest work follows Marty McFly, the DeLorean, and Hill Valley itself back in time from 1985 to 1955. With elegantly rendered, lovingly detailed vignettes, he condenses one of the greatest movies ever made into a Hill Valley travelogue, and a poster we can’t take our eyes off of.
The screenprint will go on sale HERE at 11AM CST this Wednesday, July 1st.
Back To The Future Screenprinted Poster Art by Adam Simpson 36″ x 24″ Edition of 225 $50.
Back To The Future Variant Screenprinted Poster Art by Adam Simpson 36″ x 24″ Edition of 125 $75
The history of Marvel Comics technically begins with the introduction of Namor the Sub-Mariner in 1939 and Captain America the following year. But the rise of the company from a scrappy publisher of romance, war, and sci-fi comics to one of the biggest entertainment brands ever really began in 1961 with Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four, and the revitalization of the entire comics industry that followed.
This week Mondo will release a new poster featuring the Fantastic Four – a beautiful, screenprinted reproduction of Fantastic Four #1 by legendary artist, Jack “King” Kirby.
It’s 1961. Marvel Comics editor Stan Lee and Jack Kirby collaborate to create the company’s first new superheroes in years, a team book to compete with the distinguished competition’s Justice League of America. Rather than a group of heroes uniting to fight against evil, it would begin with a family – the world’s smartest man, his scrappy best friend, the love of his life, and her hotshot brother.Each transformed by a terrible accident, they’d stay united in their adventures (and angst) for the decades to come, and transform an entire medium along the way.
It wouldn’t be hyperbole to say that Fantastic Four #1 is one of the most important publications ever, and we’re honored to bring you a reproduction of artist Jack Kirby’s original cover art.
It’ll be clobberin’ time on June 25th at 11AM, when the poster will be available HERE.
Fantastic Four #1 Screenprinted Poster Art by Jack Kirby, reproduction by Jon Smith 24″ x 36” Edition of 225. $50.

Mondo is excited to announce their official license for Marvel’s First Family: The Fantastic Four. For the first time ever, and available at MondoShop.com beginning March 5, the pop culture shop unveils products across categories for the popular comic characters.
Created by the legendary Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, these “heroes with hang-ups” and their iconic cast of supporting characters represent a beloved corner of the Marvel Universe and are truly near and dear to Mondo’s comic-loving hearts. More than any other of Marvel’s Silver Age heroes, the Fantastic Four transcends traditional costumed heroics, instead focusing on stories about a tight knit family of adventurers.
The new collection begins with a pair of limited edition posters, each of which will also have an even more limited variant. “Fantastic Four: Galactus,” from artist Killian Eng, features the planet-eating cosmic entity that’s not exactly a villain but also in no way a hero. The $50 full-color print will be available in an edition of 225.
The $60 black-and-white variant will feature an edition of only 100. Both posters measure 24×36.
The other pair of posters, titled “Fantastic Four: Silver Surfer,” comes from artist Dániel Taylor. As the title suggests, these posters focus on the Silver Surfer, a frequent player in Fantastic Four stories who was first introduced in the comics as a herald of Galactus. The blue-tinted $50 version of Taylor’s print will be available in an edition of 175.
The $75 variant, which splashes in some purple alongside the blue, will be available in an edition of 100.
These posters should ship sometime in May.
In addition to posters, there are a handful of other offerings for the First Family. Mondo is happy to finally be able to meet the amazing demand for Tom Whalen’s longstanding Marvel enamel pin series with all-new pins featuring brilliant scientist: Mr. Fantastic, the world’s most powerful woman: The Invisible Woman, her hot-headed brother: The Human Torch, and everyone’s favorite cantankerous pilot: The Thing! To stand alongside them is a gorgeous, polished metal Silver Surger pin, against the Lifebringer, Galactus, in a tastefully oversized pin. Finally, every good hero needs a great villain, and there truly is none greater than Doctor Doom!
And last but not least, Mondo is excited to announce an additional Marvel inspired vinyl slipmats with a new Fantastic Four slipmat! Designed by Bruce Yan, this slipmat features the team’s iconic ‘4’ logo on Side A, and the infamous Doctor Doom on Side B.
Thank the Ancients for Jon Favreau. Not only is he one of the key figures responsible for launching the MCU and the filmmaker that gifted us with one of the best modern Christmas classics, but he is a bonafide Star Wars master and one of the primary forces behind the excellent series: The Mandalorian.
Set sometime between the fall of the Empire and the rise of the First Order, the show follows a lone warrior and bounty hunter as he navigates the outer reaches of an all too familiar galaxy. The show proudly wears its influences on its armor – from Leone’s Westerns to Samurai epics – and we fell in love with every gritty detail from week to week. From Ludwig Göransson’s incredible score to Pedro Pascal’s stoic performance as the titular Mandalorian, everything just sort of clicked in the best way. But there was one character who simply transcended it all: The Child.
Together with Acme Archives, Mondo has teamed up with Rory Kurtz on a new poster for this instantly iconic new character to Star Wars lore. Titled “The Bounty,” Rory has beautifully brought life to one of The Mandalorian’s most captivating new characters, and will be available as a Timed Edition starting Friday, February 21 at 11AM CT and running through Monday, February 24 until 11:59PM CT. In addition to the timed edition release, Mondo will also offer a limited edition 5″x7″ graphite variant of Rory’s artwork.
“I can’t say exactly when my feelings toward The Child turned from hesitant curiosity, to full on fan obsession. I had started this small original drawing for the sheer fun of it, just two or three episodes into The Mandalorian, and before even finishing it, I was just as ecstatic for The Child as everyone else seemed to be. Something about the child’s original trilogy design, and live real world puppeteering just brings so much more to the character than another forgettable CGI creation. That, and the certain mysterious understanding in it’s giant glassy eyes. The entire series is such a great addition to Star Wars canon, and season two can’t come soon enough.”
“The Bounty” by Rory Kurtz 8″ x 10″ Giclee Print Timed Edition – Available until 11:59pm on 2/24 Printed by Static Medium Expected to Ship May 2020 Ships Worldwide $35

Tomorrow will release a Frozen II print by Tom Whalen=.
Frozen took the world by storm when it was unleashed on the world in 2013, and six years later, Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Kristoff, and Sven are back in one of the most visually stunning films of the year in Frozen II.
“The Frozen poster that I designed back in 2014 has consistently been one of my most-requested prints, so I was jazzed when Mondo asked me for my take on Frozen II. My goal for this design was to maintain the open, airy feel of the first poster, while giving the characters them a bit more depth and volume that the evolution of my style has allowed. I chose to design this as a floating composition and steer away from the color-to-the-edge approach of the original poster. It was a treat to revisit this crew of characters, and I can only hope to spend some time with them again in a few years.”
