Mondo Gallery has announced its final show for 2015 with “Snikt. Bamf. Thwip: A Celebration of Marvel Comics,” a mega poster event featuring some of Mondo’s biggest and most sought after artists paying homage to the rich history of house of ideas. Featuring original screen prints of The Avengers, X-Men, Spider-Man and many more, the event is set to open Friday, December 11 at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas and run until December 19.
“It’s probably no surprise that the Marvel Comics universe holds a special place in every Mondoer’s heart. These characters inspired us, helped to shape who we are, and taught us life lessons that stuck with us forever (our own Eric Garza still pretty much thinks he’s Wolverine). We excitedly asked a handful of artists to create posters for some of our favorite comic storylines and characters. We can’t wait for you to see everything,” said Mondo Creative Director/Co-Founder Mitch Putnam.
In addition, we’ve got an exclusive look at artist Becky Cloonan’s Dark Phoenix print, which you can check out below.
“X-Men was the very first comic I followed religiously, issue to issue,” Cloonan said about the gifted youngsters. “So you can imagine getting to draw the Dark Phoenix, one of the most beloved and iconic characters and storylines in the history of the X-Men, well, damn, it means a lot to me!”
Other artists set to premiere pieces at the show include: Florian Bertmer; Boneface; Glen Brogan; Sam Wolfe Connelly; Craig Drake; Francesco Francavilla; Gianmarco Magnani; Mike Mitchell; Phantom City Creative; Chris Skinner; Matt Taylor; Emily Tetri; We Buy Your Kids; Tom Whalen; and Matthew Woodson.
