Mondo Gallery Presents: 80 Years of Batman Show

The Dark Knight returns to the Mondo Gallery this May with a brand new show eight decades in the making! The “80 Years of Batman” gallery show will celebrate the history of the caped crusader, along with his allies and infamous rogue gallery of villains, with 18 classic, iconic and fan-favorite Batman comic book cover images produced as screenprinted posters.

Opening night for “80 Years of Batman” will be held Friday, May 17 from 7 – 10PM, and the show will run through May 25 during regular gallery hours (12PM – 6PM, Tuesday to Saturday). Mondo Gallery is located at 4115 Guadalupe St., Austin, TX.

“For most of my life I’ve been enamored with Batman. His rogues. His world. His look. It’s just about as perfect as you can get,” says Eric Garza, Mondo Creative Director. “It wasn’t until I was a bit older that I became enthralled with the artists who have lent their talents to drawing old Bats. From campy pulp detective to hardened Dark Knight, so many brilliant artists have added to the allure and majesty of the Caped Crusader. To celebrate 80 monumental years and the incredible comics legacy of the Batman, we’ve mined the Batcave for our favorite and most iconic Batman comic book covers. We are proud to share them with the world as beautifully produced screenprinted posters. Long live the Bat.”

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Print By John Alvin

We are thrilled to announce the partnership of ISH x Bottleneck Gallery x Vice Press with Andrea Alvin and the John Alvin Estate.  John Alvin’s legendary career is unmatched in cinema illustration / design as he created art and theatrical posters for legendary films like Gremlins, Blade Runner and E.T.. 

Each poster released in the John Alvin series will be sourced from original art and files from John’s archive and will be approved, not only by the studio, but by Andrea Alvin with a signed and embossed certificate.

Up first is E.T…. one of the most successful films of all time and beloved by the world over. The classic original theatrical poster was created by John Alvin and nobody had any idea of the impact it would cause! Seemingly everywhere today, this image was painted by John using very little reference from the actual film as the studio wanted to keep E.T. hidden prior to the film’s release.

The print will be available as a timed-edition release, alongside a limited variant, from Thursday (April 18) at 12PM EST through Monday (April 22) at 12PM ET at bottleneckgallery.com as well as on Vice-Press.com at 5PM GMT.

Suntup Editions Announces Covers Collection Skeleton Crew Print By J.K. Potter

Suntup Editions announces their latest addition to The Covers Collection, J.K. Potter’s incredible art from the limited edition of Skeleton Crew by Stephen King. Although the artwork did not appear on the cover of the limited edition, it has become so iconic, and indelibly associated with it, that Suntup Editions felt it deserved a place in the series.

Only 52 lettered and 1,000 numbered copies were produced, making it a sought after treasure among Stephen King collectors. Potter’s depiction of the grim skeleton in a hard hat featured in glorious color became an instant fan favorite.

These prints are hand-signed by Potter, who has also created a Remarque on the first 20 large prints — five of which are available for purchase at the time of the release, so act fast on those.

Exclusively available through Suntup Editions for your private collection, and limited to just 50 copies per size, worldwide.

Batman: The Animated Series – Season One Print Showcase By George Caltsoudas

This Friday, April 12, 2019 Bottleneck Gallery will be striking terror into the hearts of Gotham’s criminals with George Caltsoudas Batman: The Animated Series showcase!

Batman: The Animated Series is arguably the definitive interpretation of the Caped Crusader outside of comics. Paul Dini and Bruce Timm created the ultimate love letter to the entire Batman universe, and the show has since become a cartoon classic. 

Last year, George Caltsoudas took on a personal illustrative project to create art for his favorite episodes from the show, and we’ve been skulking in the shadows, eagerly waiting to work with him on creating officially licensed prints from his project! George’s gorgeous prints parallel the “dark deco” design that the show pioneered, while also showcasing George’s unique interpretation of each episode.

Batman: The Animated Series – Season 1 by George Caltsoudas
Giclee prints
Hand-numbered (editions vary)
16 x 20 inches
$40 each

George’s entire showcase of prints will be available for purchase on Friday April 12, 2019 at 12PM ET HERE.
