Mondo has announced that they will be hosting an event at their gallery in Austin, Texas from May 17-May 25. The show, called “80 Years of Batman”, will run during regular gallery hours.
The event will showcase eighteen famous comic covers that will be produced as screen printed posters. A selection of the covers has already been made known as seen above. Mondo has also made it known that after the event, these posters will be available worldwide for those who are unable to make it to Austin for the event.
“For most of my life I’ve been enamored with Batman. His rogues. His world. His look. It’s just about as perfect as you can get,” says Eric Garza, Mondo Creative Director. “It wasn’t until I was a bit older that I became enthralled with the artists who have lent their talents to drawing old Bats. From campy pulp detective to hardened Dark Knight, so many brilliant artists have added to the allure and majesty of the Caped Crusader. To celebrate 80 monumental years and the incredible comics legacy of the Batman, we’ve mined the Batcave for our favorite and most iconic Batman comic book covers. We are proud to share them with the world as beautifully produced screen printed posters. Long live the Bat.”
