Keen readers will remember that one of my very first posts on Ruby Hornet was on a Mondo Gallery show that artist Mike Mitchell had last spring. The show featured Mitchell’s color-filled portraits of various film characters, including Pulp Fiction‘s Mr. Pink, Oldboy‘s Oh Dae-Su, Drive’s Driver, and more. The artist and Mondo have teamed up once again for a new show that will focus on the marvelous side of comic books: Marvel.
The new show, entitled “Mike Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo,” will run from April 25th until May 17th, with a special opening night event on April 25th from 7pm – 10pm with Mitchell himself in attendance. The pieces, some of which can be seen below, will highlight some of Marvel’s iconic characters, like Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus, alongside lesser known figures, including Bullseye and Power Man-era Luke Cage. Considering Marvel’s growing stable of film properties (let alone the rising portfolio of Sony and Fox owned Marvel film properties), it’s only a matter of time before lesser-known characters like MODOK, Iron Fist, and Nova are plastered onto underwear, shirts, and billboards everywhere with The Avengers and X-Men.
Some of the pieces will also be available for sale at the show in limited quantities for $60 each. You can find the list for the available pieces below. If you do attend the “Mike Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo” show, let us know how it is!
