13 Great Mondo Prints You Can Buy For Less Than $100
Collecting Mondo prints is tough and it can be a heartbreaking experience for most people - but also very rewarding, and not only when you get lucky in that one drop. One of the things I learned in the last seven years I've been following Mondo's output is if you happen to have a peculiar taste in films and art (and chances are that you do, being a ScreenAnarchy reader), you may be able to pick up some incredible stuff in the secondary market without having to spend thousands of bucks.
Here's a selection of 13 awesome Mondo prints that you can get for under $100 on eBay or on online collector's communities. It is a list heavily based on my personal taste, but I tried to include something for everyone - I trust that it may work as a gift guide or a good starting point for a potential collector. It lacks a good deal of great pieces by wonderful artists (Laurent Durieux, Mike Mitchell, Jason Edmiston, Francesco Francavilla and others), but I strongly encourage you to check out Mondo Archive for more. Enjoy!
Assault on Precinct 13 - Tyler Stout
Average Price: $70
If you ever heard of Mondo, chances are you've already heard of Tyler Stout too. It's like they grew up together: his collaboration with the company go way back to the early stages of the business - a time when, believe it or not, you would have hours or even an entire day to pick up a Stout print on Mondo's site. Things have changed quite a bit, but if you are a fan of John Carpenter's exploitation masterpiece Assault on Precinct 13, I have some good news. If you put a little effort to it, there's a good chance you may be able to score this great piece, one of my personal favorites by Stout, for close to the original price tag.
