Exclusive: Check out a few of the goodies being offered at MondoCon

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Though we may disagree on many matters in the film world – like Marvel movies vs. DC, reboots vs. originals, and whether Adam Sandler and Netflix need to knock it off now or later. But one thing we can all agree to is that movie swag is the most awesomest thing ever, amiright? When it comes to movie-related goodies no one does it better than Mondo, and this year you can get a look at some of their hottest upcoming items and experience a slew of wonderful panels at this year’s MondoCon being held on November 4th and 5th in Austin, Texas. To give you a taste of what to expect, we here at JoBlo have some exclusive glimpses at a few of what’s being offered this weekend at the convention.

We have three – count ‘em, three – items to show off, and I know you think three may not be a lot, but I’m here to tell you to shut up and remember quality beats quantity, and these are top-notch items.

First off, we have a beautiful, wondrous E.T.: THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL poster with specs as follows:

Finally, we have another pin for you of the mechanized owl from CLASH OF THE TITANS, Bubo, (done by Tom Whalen) which will make an adorable addition to whatever you wish to stick it to.

As for the convention itself there are plenty of amazing things to check out, including a ton of different panels like The Art of Games, which will discuss the highly-anticipated “The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31” game and much more; Comics: Behind the Panels, which will features artists like Lee Bermejo, Becky Cloonan, Francesco Francavilla and more as they discuss their process in creating amazing comic book art and; Mondo Talk, wherein Mondo poster team of Mitch Putnam, Rob Jones, Jay Shaw, & Eric Garza will talk about how they make those wonderful posters.

There’s more too, including two movie screenings – EX MACHINA and LABYRINTH – at the Lamarr Alamo Drafthouse in Austin. David Rancatore, Gallery and Events Manager at Mondo, spoke about the convention and how awesome it is to have such dedicated fans and institutions like the Alamo Drafthouse having their back all these years:

MondoCon is a celebration of everything Mondo loves, including movies, art, comics, music, toys, and food, and we're excited to share our love for the city of Austin by holding the convention right downtown at the Austin American-Statesman. The venue used to house the newspaper's printing presses and is a great space for all of the amazing artists, exhibitors, attendees, and panels this weekend. We're thrilled to host our evening screenings at the Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar, the home of Mondo for many years, and for our fans to enjoy the awesome Drafthouse movie-going experience.
