Mondo picks it's alternative movie posters of the year: 1, 2, 3.

These are just great. I can already think of at least three I'd want as prints for our house.

This one looks like it's straight out of L'Incal. Perfect.

I would still gladly trade my sister, or dog, for that Iron Giant print.

Mondo's print runs tend to sell out in minutes. It's super annoying.

I like that Jock has done Mondo posters for both Dredd and The Raid.

It's weird how much my heart instantly softened when I saw the Iron Giant poster. That movie always makes me cry, and the poster is really lovely.

I desperately, desperately need this one for my home.

Now I really want to watch Melancholia again.

So... how much would it cost to commission something like this?

I could totally go for several film print posters in different styles for Don Quixote.

The horror film posters are lovely, especially Psycho.

It strikes me that not only are the posters far and away better than anything the movie studios put out, I really really wish those alternate posters where the style in which the movies where made/filmed as well.

I would never leave the cinema if that where the case.

Wow. These are fantastic. Somehow the one for The Wolf Man gets me the most, and I don't even much like that movie!

I too love that Alamo Go Ape poster. It'll go nicely with my original Go Ape poster.

The Cabin in the Woods poster is excellent. Movie posters need more Escher.

I too love me some Iron Giant but am reluctant to drop $180 for that poster :(. I picked up this one last year though and am quite pleased. It looks to be out of print again, but I know he occasionally does reprints.

I was hoping for posters that were used at the time of a movie's release.

Fantastic, thanks ArtW.

I so want a Tyler Stout "Big Trouble in Little China" print. But it's now $3,000 on the secondary market.

Seeing my favorite artists priced out of my range is generally a great thing (but not always).
