July 10, 2013
With Comic-Con just one week away, fans are undoubtedly getting excited about all the big news, footage, and events happening in San Diego for all things geek. But one of the other cool things is all the exclusive stuff you can find on the convention floor, some of it free, and some of it available for a price. Such is the case with the collectible arthouse Mondo as they have some exclusive prints they'll be selling at the convention again this year. They've just unveiled a whole slew of new work around the web for Pacific Rim, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, The Dark Tower and more. These are just spectacular!
The Dark Tower by Drew Struzan, Size: 20” x 36” Edition: 450 Price: $275
Howl's Moving Castle by Olly Moss: Size: 20” x 36” Edition: 225 Variant Only Price: $90

Click on any of the above images for more information on each individual print. My personal favorite is that work for The Dark Tower. Why? Well, first of all, it comes from legendary poster artist Drew Struzan (a documentary about him will premiere at Comic-Con). Second of all, fans should recognize the image as the same painting that Struzan created to be used in the beginning of The Mist, where Thomas Jane's character was seen as a movie poster artist working on this very print. The original is available on Struzan's site for $120,000, but Mondo's pricetag above is a little more reasonable (though still pretty pricey).
And don't worry if you're not attending Comic-Con, the prints for The Dark Tower, Conan, Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle will have a presale, this Friday, July 12th. As always, stay tuned to @MondoNews for exact sale times. Otherwise, these new posters will be available daily at the Mondo booth at Comic-Con, and artists Martin Ansin, Olly Moss and Drew Struzan will be on hand to autograph prints as well. Check out Mondo’s blog for more details on the pre-sale and signings happening at the convention.
