  1. daaammmnnn…

  2. Wow these are badass

  3. Savage!

  4. It’s nice to see Martin Ansin again. His work is always amazing.

  5. The draping on the front of the cape is a little off. Beautiful poster otherwise. Nice font choice!

  6. Naked…F5

  7. Again this fucking sucks. Got dragula on my cart, checkout, pay, counting shipping, pay again, lag, soldout.

  8. Also


  9. As a frequent purchaser of Mondo posters, never having flipped a single print.. I have been screwed out SO MANY prints due to Mondo’s pathetic site crashing. Not receiving the Adventure Time print until after xmas (which was a Black Friday release) was a perfect example of the fact that Mondo is running a schlocky business. They’re doing killer work, and happen to have massive cache, but the business they run is amateurish and spiteful to their customers. Hopefully one day they’ll stop replying to this issue with such disdain (*see Mondo Blog rant from xmas last year), and realize that its only the customes who are losing out. I know its part of the game, but I feel like at this point, we’re all aware of the money they’re making, and having such a painfully unreliable purchase method is just lame. If you apply this idea to any other company, you’d never buy from them again. Sigh.

  10. Please update the shopping cart system Mondo!
    Really disappointing, missed again while it “calculated” everything :(

  11. shit’s stupid. how is it even possible for every poster to sell out in two seconds? figure it out.

  12. Im at work with the worlds fastest interwebz, carted the second it dropped and couldnt even get my mondo gift card numbers in. I would say f^^k mondo…but they could care less.

  13. Man what a gorgeous poster. Martin Ansin is easily one of my favorite illustrators working right now. Little touches like the shadow-bite and his amazing use of type are what make the design nerd in me squeal whenever he puts out something new.
    The Universal Monsters series has honestly been my favorite Mondo series so far. These great old films have been done justice to say the very least.

  14. Some of these posters are cool but Mondo is putting out a ton of posters. Who wants all this sh!t on their walls?

  15. Sucked that Mondo waited to add the variant.

    Ended up missing all of them.

    Crap way to end the year.

  16. Did the poor naked father get one?

  17. We, the collectors, must rebel against the rising tide of flippers. Placing bids on the ‘bay & such only fuels their fire. They are truely killing it for us.

  18. Pay in the secondary market or never see this print in your collection; period. You make up your own mind.


  19. Ansin is the king of typography AND illustration.

  20. True that 13. He blows Stout & company out of the flippin’ water.

  21. Mondo cares;they need a better way toget posters to the true fans of their stuff;any suggestions for them;I suggested a lottery system.

  22. If the name of british adventurer Bear Grylls means nothing to you folks in the US, then go google an image. It’s him!

  23. Amazing work by Martin and that typography is super sexy.

  24. @fish

    indeeeeeed, lol

  25. You have to be READY! I have no tricks- except that I wait…. And reload… And wait… And reload…
    I’ve gotten like 7 Mondos now- some have even been on 3G.
    Got my neighbor totoro on regular old Internet too-
    It IS doable…

  26. @PosterChris

    You seem to be on a bit of a roll w/ the random Mondo drops. There’s definitely a degree of luck involved as well as perhaps some other (un)known forces at play, & then there’s the devotion of time required. For me, the pursuit of embellished paper goods must take a back seat to food on the table & the needs of my family. That being said, I wish I had scored a regular.

  27. totally @Murphy- I have been lucky…. Don’t get me wrong… Its ALMOST impossible… i got shut out the regular dracula too, in the cart and all…. bummer….

    And yes, Embellished paper goods (well put), hold no clout over the Familia!!!!

    And let’s take it easy on Mondo Geeeeez…. I mean,
    I just HATE that Paul McCartney- Fucking sells out all his concerts in MINUTES! THEY MADE IT_ IT WORKED_ LET THEM ENJOY THE BENEFITS_ Cheers!

  28. Did the Mickey one already get dropped, sold out, and taken down? I was checking yesterday and never saw it up there.

  29. :::::yawn:::::

  30. Hey Stoney, F^^K you!!!! Dealing with two kids who had strep throat. So, seriously f^^k off. So, to answer your childish question, nope…did not get one.

  31. Wow! Calm down everyone.

  32. Dracula really stirring things up! Or maybe it’s violent Mickey!

  33. Someone sure is mad they didn’t get their poster to flip! Hope mom made enough money to afford the strep meds.

  34. Paul Macartny sucks!!!! Poster Chris has bad taste in music. The Beatle are cool. John, George, Ringo; cool. Paul sucks!!!

  35. i love the type on this.

  36. @Stoney, email me personally lupy666 at gmail and we will continue this like men…unless you are a pussy (and like hiding). And you screwed up you facts, dickhead. I do not live with my mom. I have a house, two cars, two kids, a great wife and get laid every night that I want it without paying for it like you do…jackass. My life does not depend on flipping, but it makes it fun to piss you off knowing that I got a poster that you did not get.

  37. By mom I meant your wife aka the bread winner. Nice meltdown though. Btw I +1’d on all these. Have fun with those sick kids!

  38. I’ll take on anyone, anytime. Call me to set up a bronx style rumble. If I’m not there, leave a message with my grandma. She kicks ass so don’t fuck with her either. We’ll both beat you to death with Stout Thing variants.

  39. Wow we are treated to a beautiful Ansin print for the new year and we have people challenging one another on a poster message board? This can’t be life i mean really?

  40. haha, what the hell?

  41. 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?

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

  43. 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.

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

  45. 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.

  46. 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.

  47. @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.

  48. 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.

  49. 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.

  50. 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!

  51. 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-

  52. 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.

  53. @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.

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

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