Propaganda Time!!




Wired posted the 1st look at a series that was assembled under as much secrecy as a S.H.E.I.L.D. operation. Captain America: The First Avenger flies into theaters in the states this week, just in time for the annual San Diego Comic-con. Mondo, who has a booth for the very first time at said convention, will release these at some point, as well as a wicked vintage set by Olly Moss, and an insane one-sheet by Tyler Stout. I truly admire the work of both artists, so it really is amazing to be included in this series.

This is also a ridiculously awesome project for me. My brother, my cousin Jeff, and I started collecting comics when we were grade school kids and have been attending the con for almost 20 years. After flipping through all the Marvel books, I'd try my best to draw all the different characters - from the Avengers - to Spidey - to the X-Men. It was definitely a goal to work on these characters one day so when this project came about, I actually reverted into a total fanboy. I really never thought I'd get the opportunity and I really hope I made the most of it. It really is a childhood dream fulfilled.

Visit the Mondo booth #433 if you can make in to the Con. The Captain pieces are priced at $80 for the set of two 18-inch-by-24-inch screen prints that will be sold in a limited edition of 220.

Ah-may-zing. I've been a huge comic fan all my life and you've certainly captured that essence. This has made my day-thank you! :)

Do you have your schedule of days, times and locations for when you will be at the different booths?

I hope there will be some artist copies for sale, since I couldn't make it to SDCC this year.

Thanks to everyone who came by and picked up the Captain sets. The drop was a secret one so I couldn't really post when I'd be there but Mondo did a really good jobs at keeping up with the tweets and there was always a HUGE crowd every time something new was released.

The coolest thing I ever get to do is to meet the fans who collect and enjoy the work.You guys are awesome and it was a pleasure to meet so many of you. Sorry to everyone who picked it up after my time was over. I hope to meet you at future cons. Thanks again guys! The support really makes me look forward to working on the next one.

These are great and as always, big fan of your work. Will you have any for sale for those of us that weren't able to go to the con?

You keep making awesome prints I have to buy and I'm running out of wall space!!!

I'm a lucky guy and my brother managed to get me a set of these.

A welcome edition to my collection.
