What with everything else that’s been going on over the past few months, you’d be forgiven if you completely forgot that Mondo and artist Tom Whalen’s Looney Tunes series (which, you’ll recall, began all the way back in March of 2012 with Whalen’s fantastic Duck Dodgers print) was still not wrapped. Yes, it’s been awhile, but earlier today the Mondo crew revealed that the next installment is only hours away from dropping…and then it’s being accompanied by another Whalen print that’ll be of great interest to L. Frank Baum fans. Read all about it after the jump, folks.
It’s been a while since there was a new installment of Mondo and Tom Whalen’s awesome Looney Tunes series, but it looks like we’re getting the latest update via an excellent new print dropping tomorrow via the Mondo website. And, hey, this one comes with a bonus: Mondo’s also dropping a brand-new Wizard of Oz print, also by Whalen. It feels like it’s been too long since we heard from Tom, doesn’t it?
Here are the prints, as well as what Tom’s saying about them over on his blog:
First up is the 1939 classic, Wizard of Oz. Despite the flying monkey phobia that this film induced in me, I still love it. And it still looks fantastic.
- The Wizard of Oz by Tom Whalen
- 11-color screenprint
- Limited edition of 350
“…Next up is the latest entry in my Looney Tunes series, Knighty Knight Bugs, in which Yosemite Sam plays a knight who rides a fire-sneezing dragon and is hell bent on keeping his magical (stolen) singing sword from the prying paws of Bugs Bunny. Y’know, the usual…”

- 7-color screenprint
