A couple of years ago at Comic Con I was walking around with some time to kill. I came across the Mondo booth. Now this booth was nothing fancy and not even located in the central heart of the floor. I saw this incredible Planet of the Apes poster printed on wood (see it here). Yes, wood. I asked out of the curiosity and knew I was going to get my heart broken when the Mondo rep told me the price. The price was more than reasonable and better yet, here was a Mondo poster that was obtainable!
I shared that story with you because this year, at Comic Con, you will have the same opportunity. Entertainment Weekly has posted the Mondo Pacific Rim Comic Con posters. These posters will be available all convention long at the Mondo booth. Check out Mondo’s official page for more details here.
Mondo had this to say: “I love monsters. I love robots. I love Guillermo del Toro. When he asked us to do posters for a movie he was directing with both, how could we say no? GDT wasn’t a bystander in the process, though. As he did in our previous director’s series, he helped hand pick the artist and gave notes on the designs. We’re all very proud to have worked on this project with him,” said Justin Ishmael CEO of Mondo.
Now the Pacific Rim isn’t the only movie getting a Mondo exclusive this year. Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” will also be receiving a print by legendary artist Drew Struzan. Check out that one below as well.
