Mondo, the Alamo Drafthouse’s art boutique, has become a behemoth, and they’re showing no signs of slowing down. This fall will mark the inaugural MondoCon event, “which will coincide with the first weekend of Fantastic Fest on September 20 & 21 at The Marchesa Hall & Theater in Austin, TX.” The convention “will bring together unique guests from a variety of areas to celebrate film, music, art, and toys with the world’s finest artists, designers, illustrators, painters, toy creators as well as directors, composers and more. The convention will offer new artwork and products as well as panels and special screenings.” In other words, not only will you see a bunch of cool stuff, you’ll probably go broke trying to buy as much of it as you can. Tickets for MondoCon go on sale on June 4th at Mondo-Con.com. Single day tickets will are $35 and full weekend tickets are $70. Additionally, Fantastic Fest VIP badges will get a full weekend ticket to MondoCon.
Mondo has announced the first round of guests for the convention, and in addition to including some of the usual suspects like Jock, Phantom City Creative, and Jay Shaw, the lineup will also include Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. Mignola also created a The Bride of Frankenstein poster, which will go on sale at a random time on June 5th (follow @MondoNews for the announcement).
