New print for Mondo - "The Bat Cave"

Hello friends-

Many of you have seen this one already, but I can finally post it here. Worked with my friends at Mondo to create their latest DC-licensed print titled "The Batcave." The print will go on sale at the Mondotees site on Thursday, August 30 at a random time.


Since it's never a good idea to try to explain away artistic choices, of course I wrote a long-winded blurb doing just that for the Mondo blog.

Here's the intro:
Any time you are assigned the task of reinterpreting an iconic setting with a long established history, it can be intimidating. You begin knowing how passionate fans are about the universe, and that many of them have their own definitive idea of what the Batcave looks like.
Do you hew closely to the established comic/tv/movie canon, or take some chances to create something new? Do you keep it a clinical, cross-section rendering, or attempt to go deeper and tell some kind of narrative within the scene? For our take on the Batcave, we decided on another option: trying all of the above...
 It goes on like that for a while, so if you can stand to read the entire thing head over to the Mondo blog.

Any hints as to when and where the variant may pop up?

That's a good question Andrew, wish I had some to share. Any variants for the DC stuff will be released through Sideshow Collectibles, and they determine the drop dates independent of Mondo... I'll most likely find out at the same time as everyone else!

Thanks for the reply. Picked up the Mondo one yesterday so will keep an eye out on Sideshow as well. Awesome work!!
