Whenever there's a new Marvel film, there's also a cool Mondo poster to go along with it, but now the collectible arthouse is doing a whole show dedicated to comic book superheroes from the Marvel universe, and not just the ones who have made it to the big screen. Mondo just announced a show called Mike Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo, a comics-themed show featuring artist Mike Mitchell's iconic portraits of Marvel's huge stable of heroes and villains, running from April 25th through May 17th. There's members from teams like The Avengers and X-Men, along with Spider-Man and all the villains they fight. Look!
Here's some of the Marvel portraits from Mike Mitchell's special Mondo art show:
And here's the Mondo Gallery, with Modok firmly situated above the entrance:
Mitchell says, "My love for Marvel Comics was an integral part of growing up. Not just the comics, but the action figures, video games and cartoons. My intention with this show was to take those characters out of their action-oriented world and give them a moment of silence to catch their breath. There's a humanizing quality to that which I find extremely interesting. This has easily been the most ambitious project I've ever taken on, and it's due in part to my love for their universe; which is fictional by definition, but real in my mind and in the minds of others." Opening night event is April 25th at 7pm at the Mondo Gallery in Austin.
