Limited Paper: Mondo Reveals Jaw-Dropping New GAME OF THRONES Posters by Aaron Horkey and Richey Beckett

     March 27, 2013

At last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, it’d only been weeks since the Mondo crew (who you really oughtta be following by now on Twitter via @MondoNews) announced their acquisition of the Lord of the Rings license.  Fantasy fans were pretty thrilled about that headed into the Con (several people told me Tyler Stout was “definitely” going to show up to the Con and drop a new poster set for Peter Jackson’s franchise), but they had a different, equally exciting surprise waiting for them that week:  the start of a Game of Thrones series.  We’ve seen a ton of Game of Thrones-themed prints since then, but the two dropping tomorrow—from artists Aaron Horkey and Richey Beckett—are two of the best in the whole run.  See ‘em after the jump, folks.

We’ve already set this one up about as much as we needed to in the intro (you skipped the intro again, didn’t you?), so let’s just get straight to the money shot(s).  Here’s what Mondo has to say about the Game of Thrones prints it’s releasing tomorrow:

Tomorrow, we will release the final set of posters in our GAME OF THRONES series leading up the premiere of Season 3 this Sunday, March 31st! We will have an amazing new poster, “Canus Dirus,” by Aaron Horkey that features 11 colors in total as well as metallic inks. We will also release a screen print of one of the originals from our GAME OF THRONES gallery show, “Bran Stark,” by Richey Beckett. Both of these posters feature gorgeous illustrations from two insanely talented illustrators.

Rumors have been swirling about a Horkey Game of Thrones for weeks now (maybe it got confirmed somehow during SXSW or something?  Or just a lucky guess?), and when the image started circulating earlier today our first thought upon seeing it was, “Well, that’s even better than I expected”.  See for yourselves:

  • Game of Thrones  by Aaron Horkey
  • 39×22”
  • $85 regular (with metallic inks) edition of 490
  • Signed and Numbered by Artist

Mondo has seriously stepped up their game over the past month, no?  Ansin’s Taxi Driver, Stout’s Django Unchained (hell, virtually everything at the Stout & Taylor show), Horkey’s Game of Thrones…good lord, won’t someone think of all those innocent bank accounts?!  Everyone else can focus on Beckett’s contribution to the series:

  • Game of Thrones by Richey Beckett
  • 24×36”
  • $45 regular edition of 365
  • Numbered

Oh, and Mondo also wants you to know:

You can also visit our blog HERE to see a video recap of our GAME OF THRONES gallery opening from SXSW. We had a lot of fun with this series and hope you guys enjoy it as much as we do!…Please follow us on Twitter for the on sale announcement. These posters will be available online at a random time on Thursday, March 28th.

You heard ‘em, Slappy:  stay tuned for the Tweet, and make damn sure you’re on high alert when these suckers drop tomorrow.  It seems like it’s been quite some time since Mondo had a Horkey drop, so there’s a good chance some of you newcomers have never experienced the horror, the sorrow, the ecstasy, and the cosmic junk-punch that is your average Horkey drop.  Think:  Stout, Moss, Ansin, etc.  Better yet, focus on practicing your checkout maneuvers starting, like, now.

Stay tuned for more as it becomes available, folks.  In the meantime:  as is always the case around here: if you’re an artist or gallery with artwork you’d like to see featured on Limited Paper (or if you’re just some lucky bastard who happened to overhear a bit of poster-related gossip while standing in the bushes outside Martin Ansin’s house) we wanna hear from you!  Email Limited Paper directly at LimitedPaper@gmail.com, and be sure that you’re following us on Twitter via @LimitedPaper for ongoing commentary, news updates, giveaways, and more!

STITCHERS: Showrunner Jeffrey Alan Schechter on the Sci-Fi Procedural

"It’s a program that anybody could join, but if you become accepted as a “stitcher,” your consciousness is put into the memories of the dead and you get to solve crimes. It’s giving voice to the victims and the dead of the world, and helping correct injustices for people who died tragically or too young."
