The Blot can’t wait to see this one!

As Mondo explained, “We're huge fans of Fábio Moon and are crazy excited to partner up with him for duties on this poster. He and his brother Gabriel Bá were the artists on the original short story and we knew instantly we had to ask if he'd be interested in creating art for the film adaptation.” This is a can’t miss release for fans of Moon’s amazing artwork (or Gaiman’s writing). Artist Fábio Moon went on to say “There's something about the connection of the main characters (who are a couple) that's very intimate, very quiet, and at the same time transmits the explosive effect of falling in love. I wanted to put that sense of intimacy in the poster as well as capture the energetic punk aesthetics of the film.”

How to Talk to Girls at Parties by Fábio Moon is an 18”x24” hand numbered screen print. Limited to 150 pieces, this fantastic movie poster is available now at the Mondo online store for just $45.

Comicpalooza – Texas’ Largest Pop Culture Festival – Begins Its 10th Anniversary Celebration Today!

Celebrate Comicpalooza’s 10th Anniversary with Spider-Man’s Tom Holland!

It’s official, Comicpalooza has taken over Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Center for its annual celebration of all things pop culture! This year is especially exciting as the Texas pop culture festival is celebrating its tenth anniversary. Attendees will be able to explore more than 1,000 hours of action-packed programming and entertainment across the 1.2 million square-feet of convention space.

For those of you not familiar with Comicpalooza, it’s a three-day, multi-format show comprised of interactive panel sessions, an expansive exhibition hall and special events. Notable highlights for Comicpalooza 2018 include:
  • A premier guest lineup, featuring leading actors Tom Holland, John Cusack, Krysten Ritter, Charlie Cox, Michael Chiklis, Jeri Ryan, Brent Spiner, Ruth E. Carter, Edward James Olmos, Walton Goggins, Orlando Jones, Tricia Helfer, Ray Park and Ross Marquand. The roster also includes famed comic book creators Scottie Young, Mark Waid, Michael Golden, Paul Pope and more.

  • The Comicpalooza Cosplay Contest presented by BBVA Compass invites attendees to display their unique, hand-crafted costumes and props of popular characters found in movies, TV shows, comic books, cartoons, as well as video and card games. The Crossplay Contest, drag cosplay, is an adult-only show on Friday, May 25 while kids can showcase their alter egos in the Kid’s Cosplay Contest on Sunday, May 27.

  • A distinguished literature lineup that includes authors Joe R. Lansdale, Seanan McGuire, Mat Johnson, Martha Wells, among others. Attendees will have the chance to participate in panels, fan roundtables, read and critique sessions, as well as writing workshops.

  • The Comicpalooza Film Festival showcases original works submitted by filmmakers from around the world and reviewed by a panel of judges. Attendees will have a chance to view the selected finalists throughout the three-day event as part of their admission. This year, the festival will also feature the drive-in classic, Night of the Living Dead, on Saturday night.

  • The Maker’s Space presented by BBVA Compass is driven by STEM, presenting new technology like robotics and 3D printing for the creative and curious to explore.

  • New programming additions include from the Overwatch League, the Official Houston Outlaws Watch Party on Friday night, as well as live entertainment that spans ice sculpting, magicians, dancers and music throughout the weekend.
“This year’s tenth anniversary event is the best in Comicpalooza’s history. The extraordinary lineup, diverse programming, and support from community partners makes it fun for anyone who enjoys pop culture. I knew when I sold my remaining shares of Comicpalooza that it would be in good hands, with a long and bright future,” said John Simons, founder of Comicpalooza.

This year, Comicpalooza will partner with Adult Swim, the number one-rated network among young adults on basic cable for the past decade, as part of its ongoing efforts to bring fresh, pop culture content to viewers. During Comicpalooza, Adult Swim will be screening trailers for the new season of its hit anime series, “FLCL,” which tells the story of a guitar-swinging heroine battling against a massively powerful industrial corporation and the 12-year-old boy caught in the middle. Now, more than 15 years since its original launch in Japan, Adult Swim and Production IG will premiere two seasons on Toonami, Adult Swim’s popular anime block, beginning Saturday, June 2 at 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT). The new seasons will bring together members of the original anime team, as well as a new generation of creators.

In the spirit of Comicpalooza, downtown Houston will also host free, public events that include a Friday night screening of The Dark Knight at Discovery Green and Saturday night’s Comicpalooza’s After Party on the Avenida presented by Saint Arnold that will feature a live performance by Austin’s Ghostland Observatory.

Solo: A Star Wars Story Teaser Movie Posters

Solo A Star Wars Story Teaser Theatrical One Sheet Movie Posters

Last night The Blot saw Solo: A Star Wars Story in IMAX, and I absolutely loved it! No spoilers, but it was the perfect mix of action, humor, fan service and classic Star Wars campiness! It was the closest thing to the Original Trilogy since…well…the Original Trilogy. Some fans may deride all the fan service, but honestly that’s exactly what I’m looking for an Star Wars film. It may not be what everyone wanted these A Star Wars Story films to be, but I think after The Last Jedi it’s exactly the kind of film the Star Wars fandom needed. If you haven’t seen it or don’t have plans to, go buy your tickets now! In the meantime, check out these two fantastic Solo: A Star Wars Story teaser one sheet movie posters. I love these because they’re actually unique and not just more of the same photoshopped posters that we typically see from a big budget sequel.

Solo: A Star Wars Story was directed by Ron Howard and is set to open at theaters across the United States on Friday, May 25, 2018. The film stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Woody Harrelson as Beckett, Emilia Clarke as Qi'ra, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Thandie Newton as Val, Phoebe Waller-Bridge as L3-37, and Paul Bettany as Dryden Vos.

Solo: A Star Wars Story International Theatrical Character One Sheet Movie Poster Set

It’s Solo Friday, and what better way to celebrate than with another set of Solo: A Star Wars Story international character one sheet movie posters. This set includes what most would say is the film’s primary cast with a very Star Wars-y action filled backdrop. I love how each poster features the Millennium Falcon in the background being chased by TIE Fighters in various positions in the sky. It’s almost like if you line up the posters just right you can make the Falcon zoom through the sky.
