Mondo took it upon themselves to put together their very own pop culture convention down in Austin, Texas and they called it….“MONDOCON.”  The hype and anticipation BEFORE the show was at a fever pitch and DURING the show, the Facebook forums were blowing up with stories, images and PB requests of an unprecedented magnitude.

The show was packed with panels, screenings, signings and more.  They brought in food trucks they had poster rolling tables and I’d be willing to bet that folks all walked away with empty wallets, great stories and tons of art that is destined to adorn their walls.

Here is a a look back at what is sure to be the first of many “MondoCons.”  The photos are courtesy of Austin photographer Trent Lesikar.  (Since we could not make it HUGE thanks to Trent or this visual journey.)

You’ll see mega stars like Bernie Wrightson and Mike Mignola along with rising stars like Ghoulish Gary Pullin, Kevin Tong, Phantom City Creative, Daniel Danger and Sony and Biddy of WE BUY YOUR KIDS fame.

If you were fortunate enough to go to MondoCon, soak it all in and take a journey down memory lane.  If you couldn’t make it, gaze upon what you missed out on and start prepping for next year.

We’d love to hear what you liked about the con and what you think could have been done better or added.  This is by no means a chance to “bash” the event so don’t even go there.  It’s simply an opportunity for the Mondo crew to improve upon something truly great for the fans.
