It’s week two of the annual South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, and ROBOT 6 favorite Warwick Johnson Cadwell is being featured in Mondo’s Game of Thrones gallery show (Arrested Motion has some great images from the show on its blog). This is the latest prestigious gig in WJC’s long march to stardom, following his appointment last year as the new Tank Girl artist. We caught up with Warwick, who provided us with a series of drawings taking us through his process as he worked up his commission from the design house.
Warwick began by drawing both his favorite characters from the multi-award winning HBO fantasy drama: “I did Samwell first: it was sketched out, then lightboxed with a variety of brush pens (fancy, knackered, cheap and drying out).”
We’re all fans of the Texan design maestros Mondo here at Robot 6 (as you can tell by clicking here), and they’re fans of comic art — discerning ones, as their choice in collaborators clearly shows. The latest comic artist to produce a print for them is Francesco Francavilla (Captain America and Bucky, The Black Beetle), whose Friday the 13th print will be released today at a random time and available from their shop. Best of luck getting one.
Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley and artist Kevin Tong have created a movie poster for the cult film Battle Royale in conjunction with Mondo and Tugg Inc.
Mondo is the T-shirt/limited edition print arm of the Alamo Drafthouse, which creates really awesome but also really hard-to-get prints for various films. (check some of their past ones out right here). Tugg Inc., meanwhile, is “a web-platform that enables individuals to choose the films that play in their local theaters and create their own events.” Which sounds pretty cool, if you’ve got the time and energy to pursue it. They’ve recently added Battle Royale to their library, meaning you can create an event in your town and get your hands on some of these posters to give away at it. Or if you’re in Houston, there’s one scheduled for Feb. 16.
Check out the poster and the variant edition below, along with the complete press release.
Paolo Rivera has become the latest comic artist to produce a poster for design house supreme Mondo: It’s a great composition, centering on a key scene from The Lord of the Rings, in a 10-color (!) screen print. Like all of Mondo’s designs, it will be strictly limited on a first come, first served basis, so follow them on Twitter to find out when it becomes available.
Tomer Hanuka designed a Mondo poster for RZA’s directorial debut The Man With the Iron Fists, and the limited-run (just 175 printed) sold out in double-quick time. It’s awesome, but we’ve missed it. Perhaps it will pop up soon on eBay. Reading between the lines of some of the recent posts at Hanuka’s Facebook page, there might be other releases in different colorways if we’re lucky.
Entertainment Weekly has debuted Mondo’s Dredd 3D poster created by Jock for Fantastic Fest, which begins Thursday in Austin, Texas. Founded in 2005, the annual event is the largest genre film festival in the United States, and this year plays host to a screen of director Pete Travis’ Judge Dredd adaptation, attended by stars Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby, and screenwriter Alex Garland.
Initially at least, poster be available only at the festival; however, any left over will be sold online. Jock has been working a lot lately with Mondo, the collectible art boutique arm of Alamo Drafthouse, producing limited-edition posters for The Dark Knight Rises and The Raid: Redemption.
Dredd 3D opens Friday nationwide.
Mondo, Alamo Drafthouse’s collectible art boutique, is no stranger to superheroes, having only recently released limited-edition prints for The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises (the latter by comic artist Jock). And now the company is turning its attention once again to Batman — and specifically the Batcave — in a new poster by J.C. Richard. It’s not the movie version, either, but rather a take on the classic comic-book location, complete with the animatronic Tyrannosaurus Rex, giant penny, oversized Joker playing card and the Jason Todd glass-case memorial. You can also glimpse four Batmobiles and an enormous chess set — along with a very lonely Caped Crusader.
The 20-inch by 29-inch print, limited to just 500 copies, goes on sale Thursday for $50. As usual, you have to follow the Mondo Twitter feed to learn the precise time.
To celebrate Tuesday’s home-video release of director Gareth Evans’ acclaimed Indonesian action film The Raid: Redemption, Mondo is releasing a limited-edition print by none other than Jock. The prints will go on sale sometime Thursday for $45 each at MondoTees, but you’ll have to follow Mondo’s Twitter account to learn the precise time.
Here’s one of the spoils of being lucky enough to land a ticket to Comic-Con this year–Mondo will sell this exclusive The Dark Knight Rises poster at their booth Thursday.

The posters are limited in number to 375 and cost $50. No doubt they’ll be up on eBay sometime tomorrow for a lot more than that.
On the eve of the U.S. premiere of Marvel’s The Avengers, Mondo has released the seventh and final limited-edition print in honor of the superhero blockbuster. Created by Tyler Stout, the poster showcases Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (in multiple forms), Nick Fury and the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and, yes, even Loki.

Mondo, Alamo Drafthouse’s collectible art boutique, has revealed the first two of the seven posters commissioned in honor of Marvel’s The Avengers. For his limited-edition Black Widow print, Olly Moss took a minimalist approach to the super-spy turned superhero, with a red gun in place of her lips and “From Russia With Gun,” a nod to James Bond, beneath. Meanwhile, Tom Whalen, who’s no stranger to comic books or costumed heroes, tackled Hawkeye with his trademark sense of graphic design.
The Black Widow and Hawkeye prints will gone on sale Thursday and Friday, respectively, for $45 each. Sale times will be announced via Mondo’s Twitter account.
