Aliens by Ken Taylor

The return of classic sci-fi as we enter the new era of sci-fi. Yet another Comic-Con kicks off this week down in San Diego and Mondo Tees is back with a small booth on the showfloor, selling their highly coveted poster artwork and cinematic prints. Two new pieces they're unveiling and selling this year are for two iconic, seminal sci-fi classics: James Cameron's Aliens from 1986, and John McTiernan's Predator from 1987. Yes, you want these already. The artwork is pretty damn good, I just wish I didn't have to wait in endlessly long lines to get my hands on these. The Aliens print from Ken Taylor rules. See them both below.

Here are the latest Mondo sci-fi posters, debuted on Hero Complex. Alternate versions also included here.

Here's the print for McTiernan's Predator, designed by Ash Thorp, which is being released in 3D this year:

Aliens is by Ken Taylor, who explains to Hero Complex: "Design-wise, the queen is such an awesome-looking creature, I knew that’s what the poster had to center around." The variant print is a monochrome version washed in a sober gray-green. Predator is by Ash Thorp, who explains: "I remember being scared senseless while watching Predator for the first time, and once it pulled off its mask, I lost it… Such a great movie moment and iconic monster design. I knew I had to capitalize on and pay homage to that iconic form that really freaked me out as a kid." Indeed. The variant is tinged a cool greenish-blue. Both of these prints will be on sale at Comic-Con this week. As a sci-fi nerd, it's always cool to see more art like this. Favorite?
