Although things were quiet on the Limited Paper front this week, one shouldn’t assume that it’s been quiet all over in Poster World: in truth, things are just as busy as they were throughout October…it’s just that many things have been going down behind the scenes. Indeed, there’s reason to believe—whether you’re a casual collector, a frothing-at-the-mouth true believer who feel s compelled to buy everything, or if you’re just now making the decision to get into the absurdly entertaining hobby of print-collecting—that the rest of 2012 is gonna be (to quote former first lady Nancy Reagan) “absotively redonkulous up in hurr, bitches”.
But let’s not dwell on what may or may not be happening in the weeks ahead: instead, let’s focus on what’s happening in the immediate future. Wanna know when you can get a crack at the remaining prints that didn’t sell out at Mondo’s Universal Monsters Gallery show? Are you a Mass Effect fan looking to prove your love for that franchise via the purchase and display of fancy-colored paper? Wanna another head’s up regarding Limited Paper’s next giveaway? It’s all after the jump, folks.
With new artwork from Limited Paper favorites like Godmachine, Francesco Francavilla (last seen wrecking shop with an incredible Creature From The Black Lagoon print during Comic-Con 2012), and Mark Lone, Bottleneck Gallery’s latest gallery show—a zombie-themed affair they’ve christened If You Can’t Beat ‘Em, Join ‘Em—is shaping up to be yet another impressive collection of artwork from the NYC-based gallery. Want to see some of the stuff from the show, and find out when you need to be there this Friday? Meet me after the jump, folks.
While the infamously awesome San Diego Comic-Con may be over for another year, Limited Paper’s coverage from last week’s “gathering of the geeks” is far from over: for the next week or so, we’re going to be bringing you a ton of post-Con coverage, including interviews with Olly Moss, Jason Edmiston, and rising screenprint superstar Mark Englert, video footage from the frontlines of Mondo’s biggest Comic-Con poster-drop (that’d be Moss’ The Dark Knight Rises) and much, much more. But before we get into all that, we wanted to share something a little different: a ton of photos, taken in and around “Club 437” (the wink-wink name a few of us gave to booth #437—the booth Mondo called home during the Con) by the latest addition to the Limited Paper team, Billy Garrett.
Want to see what you missed if you weren’t at SDCC last week? Meet me after the jump.
Anticipation’s running high for the 15-some-odd poster drops that Mondo’s promised during this year’s Comic-Con, and so far the reveals have been pretty damn stunning: we’ve learned that Mondo and HBO have teamed up for a Game of Thrones series, and—just a few days ago– the fine folks at Entertainment Weekly revealed three of the prints from that series to a frenzied response from fans. All’s been quiet on the poster-reveal front ever since, but today Limited Paper is proud to play host to the next big reveal from Mondo’s Comic-Con lineup: the long-awaited screenprint for Universal’s Creature From The Black Lagoon.
Ready to get a peek? Meet me after the jump, my fellow limited paper-enthusiasts.
