A Closer Look at Mondo’s Universal Monsters: Part II

We all remember the jaw dropping Universal Monster prints that Mondo came up with back in October. One of the down sides to seeing these posters online and not in person is that you cannot fully appreciate the amount of work and detail that goes into each and every one of these beautiful works of art. Because of that, I’ve decided to put together a gallery that takes a much closer look at these phenomenal posters and show off the intricate design work that went into all of these — hopefully giving you an all new appreciation for them.

If you missed the first part of a A Closer Look at Mondo’s Universal Monsters, you can head over there by clicking the link. The first part featured art from Martin Ansin’s Frankenstein, Kevin Tong’s The Bride of Frankenstein, and Phantom City Creative’s The Wolf Man. Part II highlights the work of Laurent Durieux’s Creature from the Black Lagoon and Dracula prints, as well as Francesco Francavilla’s The Invisible Man piece. Enjoy.

    1. The Invisible Man Poster is amazing, one of my favs! If you go to part I, I have The Wolf Man poster and on this post here I have The Creature from the Black Lagoon. The rest are all pictures from Mondo’s site where they have a few up close and personal shots of some of their prints so I thought it would be a cool idea to show those off. Glad you like them Nick!

    1. Nice, man! Glad you dig em’. As for the Universal Collection I also got the blu-ray set as well. Still trying to get through the Hitchcock one, but I’ll be onto the Monsters soon enough! Plan on doing a review of them? If so, looking forward to it!

      1. Haha, I saw that Hitch one. That thing is a beast. I have most of those on DVD, so haven’t hunted that one down too much.

        Will definitely be reviewing Dracula and the two Frankenstein films on the site. Those three are on the 1001. As is The Wolfman, which I reviewed ages ago, and absolutely loved.

        I may well review a couple of the others on thefilmbrief.com as well.

        Do you have any favourites out of those films?

      2. I always loved Creature from the Black Lagoon and The Invisible Man. As with all of the classic films like that I’m fascinated with seeing how the filmmakers tried to pull off certain special FX with the limited technology. It’s hard to pick a favorite though!

      3. Awesome. Those are actually two of the ones I have not seen before, so even more keen for them now. A massive fan of H.G. Welles’ Invisible Man, so that may well be the first one I take a look at.
