For diehard pop culture fans, Mondo was the pinnacle of collectibles. What started as a t-shirt business in 2004 by Alamo Drafthouse co-founder Tim League, Mondo took the film and fandom industries by storm with their line of alternative movie posters. Over the years, Mondo established partnerships with Disney and Warner Bros. to create limited-edition posters for major Marvel and DC releases. With their team of talented artists, Mondo carved a distinct niche for themselves within pop culture circles, as each new release felt like a highly anticipated event on its own for movie fans and avid collectors.

But despite the cult following that has grown for almost 20 years, it was announced that Funko, the company known for the “Pop!” line of vinyl collectibles and recent owner of Mondo, will discontinue Mondo’s posters division.

We want to commemorate some of the amazing work Mondo has created over the years, especially within the comic book work. Join us as we celebrate some of Mondo’s best posters for both Marvel and DC by a collection of incredible artists.
