Jonathan Burton Frankenstein & Mark Chiarello Mad Monster Party Posters Release From Mondo

Mondo is continuing this monster-filled month with two awesome new posters: FRANKENSTEIN & MAD MONSTER PARTY! Those of you who attended the Mondo Talk panel at MondoCon got a first glimpse at Jonathan Burton's FRANKENSTEIN and they're stoked to release the poster in two versions tomorrow.

Jonathan said about his print: "For this poster I wanted to show the emotional attachment of Dr. Frankenstein to his ‘creature' and how he treats it so sensitively long before he brings it to life. The laboratory is a manifestation of this madness; so beautifully inventive in its imagination. Its painterly lighting is an absolute gift to an illustrator. I LOVE the film, and its moments of poetry and spectacle is - for me - pure cinema! I hope fans of the film feel the poster is an appealing tribute."

Mondo are huge fans of Mark Chiarello who works for DC Comics and their pumped to work with him for the first time. As soon as he told Mondo how much he loved Mad Monster Party, they knew it’d be a perfect fit. Mondo really love his tribute to the stop motion animated classic.

Here's what Mark had to say about the release: "Mad Monster Party had a very limited theatrical release when I was a seven year old kid, in 1967. Me and my equally young pals sat there in that darkened movie theater on the last day it was showing (a late afternoon Saturday matinee) just glued to our seats. Most people talk about the first time they saw Star Wars or Raiders or Jaws, but for me, that afternoon, MMP carved a trench in my brain that has never healed. Every hardcore movie fan has two or three movies they can watch again and again and again. It's a comfort food, it's nostalgia, it's memories of a simpler time, it's crack cocaine. Damn, I feel like watching Mad Monster Party again right"
