Austin, TX -- Mondo has announced that it will return to San Diego Comic-Con 2013 with incredible new prints, including three colossal pieces of giant monster crushing artwork to celebrate the release Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ Pacific Rim from director Guillermo del Toro on July 12. The Mondo booth will be set up on the main conference floor in booth #936 throughout SDCC, Wednesday July 17 through Sunday July 21. Additionally, new prints from celebrated artists Martin Ansin, Olly Moss and Drew Struzan will be available for presale on Friday, July 12.
“Mondo has always been instrumental in cementing world creation in pop culture- these posters by Ash Thorp and Kevin Tong and Vania Zouravliov capture perfectly the wild, gleeful spirit of Pacific Rim - here’s to a mad world of Mecha and Kaiju!!” said director Guillermo del Toro.
“I love monsters. I love robots. I love Guillermo del Toro. When he asked us to do posters for a movie he was directing with both, how could we say no? GDT wasn’t a bystander in the process, though. As he did in our previous director’s series, he helped hand pick the artist and gave notes on the designs. We’re all very proud to have workedon this project with him,” said Justin Ishmael CEO of Mondo.
