Limited Paper: On the Eve of the Universal Monsters Show, Mondo Releases a Ton of NYCC Posters (And Jay Shaw’s PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4)

     October 17, 2012


We’ve just about made it to Mondo’s Universal Monsters gallery show—their biggest show ever, opening this Friday and playing home to nearly 20 posters and 50-plus originals (according to Mondo’s creative director, Justin Ishmael, at tonight’s 3D screening of Creature From The Black Lagoon)—but that doesn’t mean all of Mondo’s other business has been put on hold.  In fact, they’re going to be dropping the remaining prints from their recent New York Comic-Con appearance tomorrow morning.  Wanna know what’s going on sale, what it’ll cost you, and what it looks like?  Meet me after the jump, folks.

Before we get into what Mondo’s dropping tomorrow—and there’s quite a few things dropping—lemme remind everyone that our giveaway of Drew Struzan’s Creature From The Black Lagoon is still going strong.  We’ve received hundreds of entries thus far (and more than a few really kick-ass Limited Paper logos designed by readers), but you’ve still got until Sunday to get yours turned in.  Head on over to this page and get all caught up on what you need to do for a chance to score!  Someone’s gonna get lucky, and right now everyone’s got better chances of winning this than, say, winning the lottery.  So get involved, Slappy!  Hit that link if you’re not already onboard, and stay tuned for the results, early next week.

Now that we’ve got that outta the way, let’s burn through what Mondo’s going to be dropping tomorrow morning/afternoon.  If you’ve been following along with us here at Limited Paper recently, you’ll recognize the majority of these from Mondo’s recent appearance at the 2012 NYCC, but they’re also releasing a new Jay Shaw print that no one’s had a crack at yet.  Let’s get started:

  • Paranormal Activity 4 by Jay Shaw
  • 18×24”
  • $35 regular edition of 120
  • $50 variant edition of 70



Pretty snazzy, no?  Let’s see the rest:

  • Foghorn Leghorn:  Honorary Hawk by Tom Whalen
  • 18×24”
  • $40 regular edition of 270
  • $65 variant edition of 95



  • The Iron Giant by Mike Mitchell
  • 18×24”
  • $45 regular edition of 400
  • $75 variant edition of 175



  • Treebeard by Todd Slater
  • 18×24”
  • $45 regular edition of 330
  • $70 variant edition (with metallics!) of 130



  • Lord of The Rings by Shan Jiang
  • 24×36”
  • $45 regular edition of 360


Pretty solid lineup, no?  You’re probably wondering about a few notable absences here—this isn’t everything that Mondo had for sale at NYCC—and we’ll provide you with an update on the online sale of those posters as soon as we’ve got something confirmed about ‘em (translation:  I’ll ask the Mondo guys at the Universal Monsters show, tell ya later).  For now, everyone oughtta figure out which of the above they’re going to go after tomorrow…gonna be a tough call, knowing that so many other potentially awesome prints are going to be available just a day or so later.  Decisions, decisions.

Tomorrow afternoon we’ll be holding our big “Universal Monsters Tattooapalooza” event here in Austin, and over the weekend we’ll be bringing you all our coverage from that event (prepare yourself for a veritable cornucopia of arm photos, all taken by our buddy and your pal The Notorious BillyG), as well as all of our coverage from the Universal Monsters gallery show on Friday:  we’ll have an exclusive video walking tour of the entire show for you, a few artists’ interviews, and maybe one or two other surprises (fingers crossed!).

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!  Email Limited Paper directly at, and be sure that you’re following us on Twitter via @LimitedPaper for ongoing commentary, news updates, giveaways, and more!
