Easily one of the most anticipated movies of the summer, Zach Snyder’s The Man Of Steel should begin DC’s quest to catch up with Marvel in the movie category and eventually lead to what fans are clamoring for, a Justice League movie. (The studio has already announced plans to begin production on the follow up to Man of Steel!)
To celebrate the opening of the movie this weekend, Mondo has gone and collaborated with two of the biggest and best names in art these days, Ken Taylor and Martin Ansin, and the results are….out of this world.
Both posters are unique and feature each artists styles perfectly. Ken’s poster shows us a young Clark running carefree through a field on his adopted parents farm. It captures the youthful exuberance of a young boy living as all young boys should, even if they are aliens with extraordinary abilities.
Ken’s regular and variant prints will be limited and released at a random time on Thursday, June 13, 2013. (I’m not even going to comment on how fast these will sell out…AWWWWW CRAP, I JUST DID!)

Martin Ansin’s prints are a whole different story. First up, Martin’s Regular Edition will be Mondo’s second timed release. That means EVERYONE who wants one can get one! His metal variant will be limited to 130 and available this Friday, June 14th at a random time.
As far as the regular edition, here is how the timed release will work. Mondo will put the poster on sale for 3 days. They will start the sale at 12:01AM CST on Friday, June 14th and the sale will be open until 12:01AM on Monday, June 17th. No purchasing limits. No “sold out” tweets. You will have a full 72 hours (3 days) to buy this. The edition will be determined by how many are sold in that amount of time. After that, the edition will be closed, printed and never reprinted again.
