If you’re even vaguely familiar with Mondo sales, you know the the prints go quickly. And considering all the buzz surrounding Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, with premieres today nationwide, you can expect these to be snapped up in record time. Check out the prints below, and keep an eye on Mondo’s Twitter account.
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. It joins previously released prints spotlighting Black Widow, Hawkeye, Captain America, the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man and Thor.
The limited-edition Avengers print goes on sale Friday for $60; the variant is $110. Follow Mondo’s Twitter account for specific times.
I’ve got to hand it to Comics Alliance/Moviefone blogger (and CBR alumnus) Andy Khouri: Late last week, he assembled two absolutely stunning image galleries for his readers’ delectation. First up, over on CA, he put together
the first of what he promises will be a his latest weekly look at the “Best Art Ever (This Week)”, an extensive selection of cool artwork — some old, some new, some fan, some pro — from around the Internet. Highlights in this week’s batch include the above Scott Pilgrim pin-up by Bryan Lee O’Malley, Wonder Woman and her invisible jet by Mike Allred, a steampunk version of The Lord of the Rings‘ Witch-King by Max Arkes, and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe by Gilbert Hernandez (!!!!!!).
