"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
We debuted Mondo’s First Hellboy statue, based Mike Mignola’s original drawing of the character, earlier this month, but this morning the collectible art boutique revealed more of its offerings for Comic-Con International.
They include a limited-edition Ant-Man poster by Kevin Tong, inspired by the upcoming Marvel Studios film, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Leonardo collectible figure, and a vinyl edition of the Aliens soundtrack and a die-cut single of the themes from Superman: The Animated Series. (You may recall that last year Mondo released Batman: The Animated Series on 7-inch and 12-inch die-cut vinyl).
Although the Superman-doesn’t-kill controversy surrounding Man of Steel has died down significantly since the film’s June premiere, it will probably flare up a little with the Blu-ray release next week. And so while Screen Junkies is definitely late for Round 1, it’s coming out swinging with its send-up “Man of Steel: The Animated Series.”
There’s no point in spoiling the brief video, so I’ll just say that, as the title suggests, it combines the morality and logic of the film with the tone and look of the beloved cartoon, with comical results.
Whether you remain unconvinced by the theatrical trailer for director Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel or you’re merely a fan of Superman: The Animated Series, you may enjoy this video that recreates the teaser using clips from the beloved animated series.
Man of Steel opens June 14.
