Mondo Announces “The Bounty” Timed Edition Giclee Print By Rory Kurtz

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. 

From Rory:

“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.”

Beautifully illustrated and composed, he has done an incredible job capturing the kinetic energy of the scene as Rey and Kylo Ren team up against Snoke’s Elite Praetorian Guard.

Mondo Announces Dark Knight Timed Edition Print By Rory Kurtz

Right now you can head over to Mondo and pick up Rory Kurtz’s stunning poster for Christopher Nolan’s take on the world’s greatest detective, The Dark Knight! Featuring Batman as watchful guardian overlooking the vastness of Gotham City, Rory put it all into this gorgeous illustration!

This poster is a timed edition available right now until Friday, 7/21 at 9PM (CT). Mondo will also have a very limited run of copies available exclusively at their booth, #835, on Friday, 7/21 for attendees at San Diego Comic-Con.

“Without a doubt my favorite hero film of all time, The Dark Knight just hits every Batman note perfectly. I wanted to create something that captured the epic IMAX scope of Christopher Nolan’s Gotham City; all towering glass, metal, and nightfall lighting. It needed to be classic Batman, but current and grounded, to follow Nolan’s vision. If there was one poster I could release that everyone could get their hands on, it would have to be for this absolute modern film classic.” – Rory Kurtz
