You never really thought of it, but John Carpenter’s The Thing lends itself really well to a board game. One person has been consumed and while they try to fool everyone, everyone else is trying to figure out who’s the monster.
Almost everyone grew up with Disney’s animated films. Heck, even our parents grew up with Disney animated films. Since the 1930s, Walt Disney and his not-so-little company have been churning out cartoon movie masterpieces for the whole family to enjoy, and this week, Mondo is celebrating all eight decades with one of…
HAL would approve too.
The genius of Captain America: Civil War is how it tells a seemingly small, personal story through such a huge, exciting framework. “Huge, exciting framework” is also a great way to describe Mondo’s poster for the film by artist Tyler Stout, which was just revealed and will be released Thursday.
In our minds, there was no better genre film last year than Arrival. There are lots of reasons for that, but the main one is the film’s dual nature. The first time you watch it is completely different than the second time, once you know its secret.
We all loved Carrie Fisher. And while Carrie Fisher may not have loved each and every one of us back, she definitely loved her dog. That’s why Mondo is taking 10 percent of sales for its new Princess Leia portrait and donating it to animal welfare causes.
It’s Christmas, a time of year people talk about Die Hard even more than every other time of the year. Which is fine by us, because it’s great, but one fan is celebrating this holiday season (and Die Hard) better than anyone else.
This is the most obviously amazing horror-object-to-holiday-ornament translation ever: the Phantasm sphere, rendered in festive, accurately gleaming silver. It’ll blend right into your Christmas tree—until you need a weapon on the fly to take down any BOYYYYY who tries to interfere with your nefarious plans.
Don’t feed it after midnight, though. That would be weird.
Olly Moss has created some truly amazing bits of pop culture art over the years, but not every idea makes it to a final product. Seeing those ideas never make it, from a creative standpoint, is always a little melancholy, but when you see something that’s truly gorgeous that never came to be, it’s heartbreaking.
Mondo is mainly known for their insanely gorgeous collection of pop culture posters and other collectible pieces, but in recent years, it’s also transformed itself into an event. The third MondoCon begins this weekend, and to celebrate, io9 has a look at three of the gorgeous prints that will be available to attendees.
Marvel’s Netflix series Luke Cage has barely been out a week, but already everyone is talking about it. Among those topics is the show’s incredible soundtrack, featuring spaghetti-western influenced hip-hop beats by Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad. Now, you can get that music in an amazing vinyl release.
We’ve written a great many words about the 50th anniversary of Star Trek this week, we thought maybe it was time for a change of pace. But how do you do that and also continue to celebrate Star Trek? Cool pictures.
The fact Jon Favreau’s remake of The Jungle Book was so damn good was a huge surprise to film fans. No one was looking forward to yet another live-action remake of another classic animated Disney film, but the director and his team vastly improved on the original.
If there’s a famous comic book property out there, artist Francesco Francavilla has probably been a part of it. His realistic, yet pulpy and vibrant style fits perfectly with so many characters and publisher. Well his fantastic work is finally getting the gallery show it deserves.
“Whoa. You’re Captain America.” Scott Lang’s hilarious awe of Steve Rogers in Captain America: Civil War goes both ways later this week at Comic-Con, as each superhero is getting an awesome, exclusive new Mondo poster that’ll first be available at the event and we’re the first to bring them to the world.
Everyone loves a good infographic. You see them constantly as you pop around the internet and yet, would you ever hang one on your wall? These you would. Three artists have combined to do a full gallery show of infographics based on your favorite pop culture properties and they are slick.
There are many problems associated with being a Galaxy Quest fan. People mishearing your “Grabthar” jokes. Lots of delays and misinformation about sequels or remakes. And a lack of cool, official merchandise. Well, cross that last one off the list thanks to the folks at Mondo.
It’s probably too late to book an affordable ticket to Dallas for this weekend’s Texas Frightmare convention, but it may be worth it. Mondo has revealed some crazy cool new posters for Scream, Jaws, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and more that’ll exclusively debut at the event.
Lots of people say they’re children of the ‘80, but I’m of the belief that isn’t true unless you know The Monster Squad. Fred Dekker’s under-appreciated 1987 monster mash-up remains a worthy cult classic and Mondo is about to pay tribute in an awesome way.
