Mondo Announces 3 Wonderful “The Wizard of Oz” Prints by DKNG

When Victor Flemming’s film, “The Wizard of Oz” burst onto the silver screen back in 1939, it instantly transported fans to a magical, far away land and cemented itself in the pop culture lexicon for eternity.  L. Frank Baum’s novel has been passed on from generation to generation and is beloved world wide.

Today, Mondo has announced the upcoming release of three sensational new prints by the talented folks at DKNG.  All three pay homage to the film that has entertained countless hordes of fans for over 115 years.

Here is what DKNG had to say about this daunting project.  “When approaching a film as iconic as The Wizard of Oz, we wanted to find a unique focal point beyond the main iconography of the film. The Horse of a Different Color occupies just a brief scene, but proved to be a great subject for a print series that includes the three different colors – red, purple, and yellow – that the horse takes on in the film. Each print shares three ink colors with the fourth screen customized to provide the color change for each variant.”

Each of these emerald beauties will be hand numbered with each color having a run of 175 each and cost only $40 apiece.   These prints go on sale tomorrow, April, 21st at a random time.  Follow Mondo on TWITTER to get the announcement.  Follow DKNG on TWITTER to see what their next great offering will be and check out their OFFICIAL WEBSITE to see more of their impressive work.

All New Work By Stephen King In His Upcoming Collection Of Short Stories: “The Bazaar Of Bad Dreams”

This November, Scribner is set to unleash some chilling new tales from the Master Of Horror, Stephen King.  “The Bazaar of Bad Dreams” is a collection of 20 stories that should keep even the bravest of souls up late into the evening.  There are five stories that are all new or being offered for the first time in print so this one will be a MUST-HAVE for King fans.

o_king108

The Bazaar of Bad Dreams is a thrilling collection of twenty stories – some brand new, some published in magazines, all entirely brilliant and assembled in one book for the first time – with a wonderful bonus: in addition to his introduction to the whole collection, King gives readers a fascinating introduction to each story with autobiographical comments on their origins and motivation. This will delight all his readers including those who loved his insight into the craft of writing in his non-fiction title On Writing. 

Stephen King is the master of the short story form – the No. 1 bestselling writer has dazzled readers with his genius as a writer of novellas and short story fiction since his first collection Night Shift was published 35 years ago. He describes the nature of the form in his introduction to the book: ‘There’s something to be said for a shorter, more intense experience. It can be invigorating, sometimes even shocking, like a waltz with a stranger you will never see again, or a kiss in the dark, or a beautiful curio for sale laid out on a cheap blanket at a street bazaar.’   (Here is a video of King from January of 2015)

And indeed in this collection there is a curio for every reader – a man who keeps reliving the same life, repeating the same mistakes over and over again, a columnist who kills people by writing their obituaries, a poignant tale about the end of the human race and a firework competition between neighbours which reaches and explosive climax. This latter, excitingly, will be launched initially as an audio-only edition – find out more here.

‘I made them especially for you’, says King to his Constant Reader. ‘Feel free to examine them, but please be careful. The best of them have teeth.’

In 16th-century China, the recently appointed Jiajing Emperor instigated a sudden and ruthless purge of all he felt were a danger to his newly acquired throne, including the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins.

In Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, players pick up Shao Jun’s story as she returns to China hell-bent on revenge. Her story will take players to famous locales including the Maijishan Grottoes, Port of Macau, the Forbidden City and the Great Wall of China. Armed with stealth, agility and a combination of deadly weapons and equipment including a sharp and swift jian, a secret shoe blade, lethal rope darts and daggers, players will deliver payback to those who decimated the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins.
