Not too long ago, Mondo Creative Director Justin Ishmael mentioned that a few Evil Dead-related items were headed our way, and it appears that tomorrow’s the day we’re going to have a chance to pick them up. Randy Ortiz’ Army of Darkness print (which first appeared at a Kansas City Drafthouse screening of that Sam Raimi film), a new Evil Dead 2 print from Jason Edmiston, and the latest Mondo poster book—with a special Mondonomicon cover—are all headed our way, and you can find out how many are available, what they’ll set ya back, and more after the jump.
When the Evil Dead remake hit theaters, many Mondo fans were primed for a poster based on that remake. At the time, we were reassured that “something” Evil Dead-related was headed our way, but—in typical Mondo fashion—the hint-dropping ended there. If you’ve been following along, you know that the Mondo crew recently issued a Randy Ortiz Army of Darkness print via a Kansas City Army of Darkness screening…but what else was on the way? Now we know. The following drop tomorrow via the Mondo website:
- Army of Darkness by Randy Ortiz
- $45 regular edition of 425
- Evil Dead 2 by Jason Edmiston
- Holy shit this poster
- $45 regular edition of 325
- Mondonomicon Poster Book
- 9×12” leather-bound/hardcover book with silver-embossed stamp
- Cover designed by Jay Shaw
- $250 regular edition of 100
If that Mondonomicon book is anything like the poster books Mondo’s released in the past, I really can’t recommend enough that you pick one up: Limited Paper purchased one at the first-ever Mondo Gallery show, and I’ve since filled it with sketches from Mondo artists (whenever I run into ‘em and they’re in a mood to sketch, of course; use common sense and tact when approaching an artist for a sketch, for God’s sake), and at this point it’s an invaluable piece of my collection. The price is steep, but for something so well-made and hard to come by and functional (if you’re planning on attending events where artists might be present, that is), it’s more than worth it.
As for the other prints: that Ortiz is still awesome, but that Edmiston blew us away upon first viewing. Here’s a big “good luck!” to anyone that’s trying out for one of these tomorrow. Your Paypal-Fu better be up to snuff: we’re expecting that these are gonna go fast. Follow Mondo’s Twitter feed (@MondoNews) for details, and—as always– 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!
