Mondo at Comic-Con

Having chased them a number of times, I’ve gotten over the allure of Comic-Con exclusives. Most of it is toy fodder that takes up closet and shelf space, never to be opened, touched, sold or used in any productive way. But there is one thing — a more recent development for Comic-Con thanks to the rise of high quality movie-related art — the prints that Mondo releases during the convention. Of those who stopped by the Mondo booth this past weekend and picked up something awesome, I am a bit jealous. With that in mind, I’m convinced that I need for all of you to share in my pain. To see the absolutely stunning selection of Mondo art from Comic-Con and realize that most, if not all of it is completely sold out and well out of reach. With a few notable exceptions, this is all about enjoying the art.

Of course, there are a few things still to go on sale. Including these Tyler Stout cover-designed vinyl albums for the STUDIO GHIBLI KOKYO KYOKUSHU collection, including selections from the Howl’s Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away soundtracks. These come in three cover varieties, all from artist Tyler Stout. Check them out below and stay tuned to @MondoNews on Twitter for the exact sale time on July 26.

The other one still to sell is the regular version of Martin Ansin’s drool-worthy Elysium print. The variant was sold at Comic-Con and the regular will be released at a random time on a yet-to-be-announced date. Stay tuned, but enjoy for now:

The rest of these pieces were sold at the Mondo booth during Comic-Con. They can surely be found on eBay or through other reseller channels, but that would most likely cost you upwards of 10x the original price. If you’re really hurting for one, it’s your money. Patience is often the best weapon in these kinds of situations, though. Just some free advice from someone who has done this dance a few times before. Because you’re going to want some of these — they are spectacular.
