I’ve been collecting Mondo Posters for five years, but recently I’ve been exploring companies outside of Mondo. This is my list of top poster companies that are not Mondo. I admit that I’m new to collecting posters outside of Mondo. Let’s call this list my first impressions of poster companies that are not Mondo.
8. Mad Duck Posters: They are an online art gallery with some pretty cool officially licensed posters. One of my favorites from them is their Re-Animator print by Stan & Vince and is an edition of 75.
7. Cyclops Print Works: I thought that Cyclops was worth noting, since a lot of their prints are popping with color. Their Big Hero 6 print by Eric Tan perticularly sticks out to me. It’s an edition of 166.
6. Dark Matter Art: They are a Gallery founded in 2013 in New York City that focuses on pop culture. Their latest Marvel prints really stuck out to me, but I’m also a big Marvel Fan. The print below is by Dave Peril and is a edition of 64.
5. Dark Hall Mansion: There are two top notch artists (Alex Ross & Tom Whalen) that have done work for Mondo with this printing company. My favorite poster from Dark Hall Mansion is their “Yellow Submarine” by Alex Ross. It measures 19″ x 71″ & is a Paper edition of 295.
4. Bottleneck Gallery: This is another quality poster company that produces a lot of excellent prints from popular culture. One of my favorites from them is their “Jurassic Bark” poster by Florey, which was an edition of 250. Truely one of the saddest and best episodes of Futurama.
3. Spoke Art Galleries: They have two galleries, one in San Francisco’s Lower Nob Hill neighborhood and one in New York City’s Lower East Side. Also, worth noting that they’ve been around since 2010. The cool thing about this gallery is that they offer custom framing, which is a big plus. Personally, I really like their Spirted Away show. The featured print is by Joshua Budich and is a edition of 150.
2. Vice-Press: This is a poster company that focuses on U.K. films, so if you’re a fan of Judge Dredd and other U.K. Films then you will like these guys. My personal favorite from these guys is their Dracula print by Francesco Francavilla, which was an edition of 120. There was also a variant edition of this print too.
Gallery1988: They have two galleries in Los Angeles and in my opinion, Mondo’s closest competitor. Most recently, Gallery1988 had two awesome gallery shows; “Rick & Morty” (Various Artists) and “Fictional Food 2” by Joshua Budich. My favorite from them so far is Joshua Budich’s “Hey, boss! It’s me! I’m hungry! Why don’t you wake everyone up?”.
