Mondo rolls out ‘Ant-Man,’ ‘Hellboy,’ TMNT exclusives for San Diego Comic-Con
Lucky SDCC-goers who make it to the Mondo booth early can pick up vinyl, collectibles, and poster art.
That’s the booth the beloved art gallery turned poster, fashion, and collectible icon will be at once again for this year’s convention. Fans lucky enough to battle the hordes and make it to Mondo mecca will get to take their pick of memorabilia and artwork of classic comics titles like Superman, Hellboy, Ant-Man, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and more.
To whet your appetite, Mondo released a preview selection of some of the highlights it’ll have on display exclusively at San Diego—starting with its tie-in poster for Marvel‘s upcoming Ant-Man. As you can see, artist Kevin Tong took his inspiration from the film’s tagline:
Wow. “In designing the poster, I wanted to show Ant-Man’s scale, the intensity of his transformation, and really just trying to make a poster as fun and dynamic as the movie,” Tong stated in a press release. The SDCC-only edition of the poster will be printed on holofoil to give it that unique mind-bending look, and it will sell for $85. But there are only 175 of them, so best of luck getting your hands on one.
The booth will also showcase Mondo’s foray into figurine-making, including a collectible based on the famous 1991 sketch by Mike Mignola that birthed everyone’s favorite demon, Hellboy:
And here’s how Hellboy looks stepping off the page and into collectible format:
In addition to the level of detail, the figurine features color input from Hellboy comic colorist Dave Stewart. You can pre-order it at the Mondo Tee website for $200, or take your chance on the SDCC exhibit hall.
If demon superheroes aren’t your thing, how about turtles? Mondo will unveil sculptures of Leonardo, Rafael, Michelangelo, and Donatello, based on the original TMNT comic series. Here’s a look at Leo:
Speaking of superheroes with a penchant for red, Mondo will partner with Phantom City Creative to produce a special vinyl single of the main theme from Superman: The Animated Series. The die-cut single features the series score by Shirley Walker. It follows last year’s Batman series release, and comes in bold red or kryptonite green:
Finally, fans of the Alien franchise and the recently departed legendary composer James Horner will want to snag a copy of this vinyl version of the Aliens soundtrack, featuring Horner’s film score and gorgeous, ominous cover art by artist Kilian Eng.
The Mondo booth will be open throughout the con starting July 9.
