Mondo 80 Years of Batman Show Online Release (Part 3) Information

Tomorrow Mondo will have the final drop of remaining prints from their 80 Years of Batman gallery show. This week they’ll shift their focus on the more modern era of the Bat as they highlight comics from the last 30 years of Batman history. In 1989, Mike Mignola and Brian Augustyn crafted what would retroactively become the first DC Elseworlds title with Gotham By Gaslight. Featuring a 19th century Batman taking on Jack the Ripper, the art is brilliantly handled by the legendary Mike Mignola. Mondo will also have posters for two key ’90s stories including Kelley Jones’ iconic cover of Bane breaking the Bat from Batman 497 and Tim Sale’s incredible art for The Long Halloween. Finally, they’ll have some awesome posters for the more recent additions to Batman’s comic legacy including Greg Capullo’s art for the New 52 reboot (and the start of a seminal run with Scott Snyder), as well as a truly gorgeous celebration of Batman and his completely unmatched Rogues Gallery by the late Darwyn Cooke. Lastly, there will be a poster for the current Rebirth era of books featuring David Finch’s absolutely beautiful cover art of the Bat and the Cat for Batman 24. 

Please follow Mondo on Twitter for the on sale announcement. These posters will be available online at a random time on Tuesday, June 11th.

Mondo’s 80 Years of Batman Show Online Release (Part 2) Info

Tomorrow Mondo will release part 2 of remaining posters from their 80 Years of Batman gallery show. This week they’re shining the Bat signal on several truly quintessential pieces of Batman covers from the ’70s and ’80s including revelatory artwork by titans of the industry including Neal Adams, Jim Aparo, Frank Miller, Todd McFarlane, and Dave McKean. Moving away from the lighter, more kid-friendly adventure comics of the ’50s and ’60s, Batman was returned to the more hardened “Dark Knight” vigilante we mostly associate his character with. This is largely due to the contributions from many of the artists mentioned above as well as writers Dennis O’Neil, Jim Starlin, Grant Morrison, and David Vern Reed.

These are some of the best covers in all of Batman history and Mondo is proud to celebrate the art as big as possible as beautifully printed silkscreen posters.

These posters will be available tomorrow June 4th at a random time via mondotees.com. Please follow Mondo on Twitter for the on sale announcement.

The schedule for this Caped Crusader cinematic celebration is:

“Batman” (1989) – Saturday, May 4, 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. (all times are local)

“Batman,” starring Jack Nicholson as The Joker, Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne/Batman, and Kim Basinger as Vicki Vale, also marks its 30th anniversary, making this Fathom Events presentation a dual celebration for fans. The top-grossing film of 1989 led to three sequels, all of which are part of the series.

“Batman Returns” (1992) – Monday, May 6, 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

In “Batman Returns,” both Keaton and Burton are back, along with Danny DeVito as The Penguin, Michelle Pfeiffer as Selina Kyle/Catwoman and Christopher Walken as Max Schreck in a film equally hailed as the first for its eye-popping visual flair and riveting performances.

“Batman Forever” (1995) – Sunday, May 12, 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.

Val Kilmer dons the Batsuit in 1995’s “Batman Forever,” along with an all-star cast that includes Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face, Jim Carrey as The Riddler, Nicole Kidman as Dr. Chase Meridian, Chris O’Donnell as Dick Grayson/Robin, and Drew Barrymore as Sugar.

“Batman & Robin” (1997) – Tuesday, May 14, 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

In 1997’s “Batman & Robin,” George Clooney is the Caped Crusader and O’Donnell is back as Robin, alongside such indelible performers as Arnold Schwarzenegger playing Mr. Freeze, Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy, and Alicia Silverstone as Barbara Wilson/Batgirl.

Tickets to each of the four “Batman” films are available HERE or at participating theater box offices.

Pennyworth Teaser Gives First Look At Batman Prequel Series

Epix has released the official Pennyworth teaser for their upcoming Batman prequel series centered on the origin story of Bruce Wayne’s butler, Alfred Pennyworth.

Pennyworth will star Jack Bannon (The Imitation Game, Medici) as Alfred Pennyworth, Ben Aldridge (Fleabag) as Thomas Wayne, Ryan Fletcher as Dave Boy, Hainsley Lloyd Bennett as Bazza, Paloma Faith as Bet Sykes, Jason Flemyng (The Curios Case of Benjamin Button) as Lord Harwood and Polly Walker as Peggy Sykes.

The series follows Alfred Pennyworth, a former British SAS soldier in his 20s, who forms a security company and goes to work with a young billionaire Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge), who’s not yet Bruce’s father.

Alfred Pennyworth is described as a boyishly handsome, cheerful, charming, clever young man from London. You would never take him for an SAS killer, thanks to his honest, open-faced, and witty demeanor. Alfred doesn’t know how to reconcile the kind-hearted boy he used to be with the cold, calculated killer he was forced to become, and he doesn’t know what to make of himself yet.

Pennyworth comes from executive producer and writer Bruno Heller (Gotham, The Mentalist, Rome) and Danny Cannon (Gotham, CSI), who will also direct.

The 10-episode, one-hour drama series is based on DC characters created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger. Production on the Warner Horizon Scripted Television series began last October at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in the UK. The series will arrive on Epix this summer.
