Wonder Woman, Spider-Man, Jaws, Batman Beyond, The Dark Knight & Cornetto – Bottleneck Gallery On Sale Info

The week is swinging on by, and Bottleneck Gallery is tremendously thankful for everybody enjoying their attempt at bringing the comic-con art experience right to the safety of your home!

First up, Matt Ferguson thwips into action with his officially licensed print for Spider-Man: Homecoming, and pub crawls his way to the conclusion of Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy, The World’s End. Matt’s Marvel work is always marvelous, and we’re always excited for more art with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost!

Tom Whalen helps us celebrate the Golden Age of comics with his newest print featuring Golden Age Wonder Woman! Tom’s print features a majestic Diana towering over Themyscira, in a protective and noble pose, rocking those Golden Age colors!

We’re shifting from DC Comics’ past to the future with Dave Perillo’s print for Batman Beyond! Terry McGinnis as future Batman was one of the first interesting and successful future superheroes from the late 90s, due in large part to Paul Dini and Bruce Timm using Beyond as a continuation of their Batman: The Animated Series. Rad villains, cool future slang, and of course, Old Man Bruce–Dave’s print is beyond awesome.

Doaly’s newest print really bites! His ode to Roger Kastel’s iconic Jaws movie poster lovingly embraces the classic imagery while also adding some of Doaly’s design flair. 

Lastly, Jack C. Gregory reinterprets one of the most intense scenes from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight: Joker’s hostage video with a fake Batman. The danger and intensity behind Heath Ledger’s Joker is fully realized during the hostage video, and Jack’s print is visceral and vicious, perfectly reflecting the scene!

All of these will be available for purchase Thursday, July 16 at 12PM ET at, bottleneckgallery.com!

Comic-Con 2020 Cancelled

For the first time in its 50-year history San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC), the organizers behind the annual pop culture celebration, announced today with deep regret that there will be no Comic-Con in 2020. The event will instead return to the San Diego Convention Center from July 22-25, 2021. 

Recognizing that countless attendees save and plan for its conventions each year, and how many exhibitors and stakeholders rely upon its events for a major portion of their livelihood, they had hoped to delay this decision in anticipation that COVID-19 concerns might lessen by summer. Continuous monitoring of health advisories and recent statements by the Governor of California have made it clear that it would not be safe to move forward with plans for this year.

Similarly, WonderCon Anaheim, which was to have been held April 10-12, 2020 will return to the Anaheim Convention Center from March 26-28, 2021.

In addition to their conventions, Comic-Con has been planning a major renovation of Balboa Park’s Federal Building to be completed for the grand opening of the Comic-Con Museum in the summer of 2021. However, the COVID-19 situation has had an effect on those efforts as well. As such, they will be rephasing the Museum’s initially planned major renovations, but will not scale back the experience to be offered to visitors upon the Museum’s grand opening. They anticipate releasing building plans illustrating the Museum’s transformation and sharing more information about those efforts in the coming months.

SDCC also announced that individuals who purchased badges for Comic-Con 2020 will have the option to request a refund or transfer their badges to Comic-Con 2021. All 2020 badge holders will receive an email within the next week with instructions on how to request a refund. Exhibitors for Comic-Con 2020 will also have the option to request a refund or transfer their payments to Comic-Con 2021 and will also receive an email within the next week with instructions on how to process their request.

In the next few days onPeak, Comic-Con’s official hotel affiliate, will be canceling all hotel reservations and refunding all deposits made through them. There is no need for anyone who booked through onPeak to take any action, including trying to cancel their reservations online or contacting the company via phone as the process will be handled automatically. Those who booked rooms through onPeak will be notified when refunds have been completed.
