The folks at Mondo have been producing jaw dropping prints for some time now. Not satisfied with just that, they have also been doing brilliant LP soundtracks with original art from some of today’s best artists. Now Mondo is going where they have never gone before, they are about to release a comic book.With the success of their recent ADVENTURE TIME/ REGULAR SHOW exhibit at their Gallery in Austin, Texas, Mondo is going to put out a special edition of Adventure Time #17. This one will NOT be sold in stores and it features a variant cover by JJ Harrison that is reminiscent of a very popular 1982 film. Here is what Harrison had to say about the project.
“I designed the “Adventure Time” cover to honor the single most important thing in my son’s life–Adventure Time–and one of the movies that had a tremendous impact on my childhood–E.T. Both center around a boy and his magical companion and the adventures they share together. It was a nice fit. For me, the original E.T. poster evokes a feeling of soaring adventure coupled with a sense of growing up and loss, and I wanted some of that in this piece, as well. I found a subtle way to include a very melancholy Ice King in the image. I feel like no other character from Adventure Time embodies those emotions more than he does.”
Follow Mondo on TWITTER for the on sale announcement. This comic book will be available online at a random time on Wednesday, June 26th. At only $10, this is a must have for fans of E.T., Adventure Time, JJ Harrison, Mondo, or just plain awesomeness in general.
