Perhaps next year we can just skip the bullshit and do Ansincon by mondo!
Seriously? Have you not seen the Edmiston Halloween, Durieux PF variant, and the Stout Goonies?
Or some guy named Horkey making birds and dinosaurs...
Tong's Mulholland was best in show. Those posters just shimmer with metallics.
The Tong was an amazing and original print!

Ansin might have had the best Mondo print, but Danger, Slater, and Vacuum all had better prints available at their booths purely from an art standpoint IMO. Not really into the Rocketeer art print myself though, despite the artwork being on point.

My personal favorite is Tong's Mulholland Drive variant. By a long shot.

That was the only thing I was gonna pick up from Mondo's booth but it was sold out by the time I got around to going over there.

Am I the only one that's surprised that Black Swan hasn't sold out yet?

:lol: I actually left pretty early on Sunday to make the drive back home. I didn't get around to meeting/chatting with nearly as many people as I would have liked, pretty much the same story as last year sadly.

I left on Sunday, mid-day. They still had a decent amount of the regular MDs, but the Variants sold out on Saturday.

plenty of regular last day of the con. so assume they will go up.

It was one of those posters I saw at the con and went "like it, but I can probably get it in a online drop". So yeah guess I'm not surprised considering the relatively simple art and that the art is also on the vinyl.

What's fantastic is that so many artists really stepped up their game for MC2. An embarrassment of riches.

It's bugging me that the best pics of Inclusion variant are on eBay and they're not even good pics.

The Mondo line was long as hell for most of the morning. It was taking about 2.5 hours to get through according to some of the folks that went through it. All I wanted was the Shaw Bros tees, which I knew would hang around, and the MD variant. All morning, between other booths, I would check and the stack of variants kept getting smaller and smaller but the line kept getting longer. I went through the Vacvvm line and the Mitchell line and before heading to Marchessa, decided to check the Mondo line one last time. Luckily it was the shortest it had been. Then it was a race against time as The Vacvvm panel started in an hour. Made it through in time to grab a beer and make the panel. The stack of posters was less than a cm thick when I picked it up. Barely made it 8)
