  1. OK, back to the art for a moment. In case anyone is still reading this thread: I’m just surprised there hasn’t been a discussion comparing the relative merits of this poster with the early-2011 Zouravliov-Horkey poster. I’m a huge Ansin fan. I own many of his posters. And seeing Bela two ways certainly is awesome. But in my opinion Vania and Aaron’s effort was the best film poster of 2011. Your thoughts?

  2. IMO – The Zouravliov-Horkey poster is hands down the nicer Dracula.

  3. The site is not the problem – your competition is the problem. Compared to many sites I’ve seen, Mondo’s handles pretty freaking well given the amount of traffic going to it. And even if there were things they could do to speed it up (speaking strictly hypothetically now), those speed-ups would benefit your competition as well and the only change would be that the sell-out happens faster.

    The problem is always going to come down to the disparity between the number of posters and the level of demand. If you have a fast internet connection, and you are willing to potentially waste hours waiting for the exact moment of the drop, then you have a pretty good chance. And by “exact moment of the drop,” I don’t mean the Twitter announcement. The game is already lost by that point.

    As for flippers – I agree, they’re a plague to the fan that can afford retail but cannot afford aftermarket prices. I have no respect for people who insert themselves as middle men to make an unearned profit. But at the same time, they are also the only reliable way to get drops you missed (assuming you have the $). Without flippers, every poster would go to someone who really wanted it and you’d never have a chance to buy one again. While that’s good for the artist / original seller, and good in a universal “I’m glad the maximum number of true fans got one,” it’s bad for the individual. It’s kind of comforting in a slightly unsettling way that there will always be a copy of nearly anything I want out there if I just raise the required amount of money for it.

  4. God that’s beautiful typography. Illustration ain’t too shabby either 😉

  5. I love the Horkey poster, and I’d prefer that one on my wall ignoring all other factors. That being said I have all the Ansin monster posters other than Bride, and I think they would look great side by side.

  6. Another great issue from Mondo. But mainly I just wanted to wish you a very happy New Year. Thanks for all the hard work in keeping this fresh.

  7. @Ryan. I hear you. As the proud owner of his Bride and Mummy, grouping posters by Signor Ansin is very very cool. One could make a very compelling argument that his Dracula more accurately reflects the Tod Browning film, especially the theatricality of Lugosi’s performance. That said, there is something so utterly haunting about the Zouravliov/Horkey poster, something so terrifying about it, and on such a primal level. It almost seems better suited for Murnau’s Nosferatu (1922). Now THAT film still scares the living crap out of me! In my opinion the greatest of all the Dracula films.

  8. Stoney, my life does not matter if I get a print or not. It seems like you care a lot. Glad you got one of each…so now we know who the real hoarders are. Stop being a hypocrite. And this day in age, it does not matter who the bread winner is.

  9. All I have to say is, the posters go to those who F5 F5 F5 F5 F5 F5. If you do anything else and get a poster, it’s just luck – nice job.

  10. I always F5 and am always there right when they drop, but don’t always score because the website craps out.

    But, I don’t go rage about it here, EB, or Mondo’s facebook page. Those people are crazy!

  11. So let me get this straight:
    It’s like the secret code in Contra!!!!
    I’m just kidding: nobody make fun of my mom or anything! The kids RIGHT.
    Lastly- Beatles. All day. Theyre just not a good concert ticket example;)
    Lastly 2- I like the Horkey more-

  12. The illustration skills of both Vania and Aaron are insane. It’s still my favourite Dracula poster, even if the two artist’s styles don’t flow together 100% (imo) and I hate the white border. The image is haunting and detailed.

    Ansin is a talented artist and designer, and having all of his work side-by-side is the best way to display some of Mondo’s greatest posters.

    So you don’t lose either way.

  13. @Cory this is maybe true if you are living in states or if you dont get stuck when it is counting international shipping like happened to me with this.

  14. All you crybabies need to step your game up or find a new hobby. It’s not the system. It’s YOU!

  15. The Whalen has a weird cut off at the bottom right???
