Mondo Is Joining the Virtual [email protected] Celebration
Mondo is excited to unveil their plans as part of [email protected], the virtual San Diego Comic-Con convention. Featuring online panels with Mondo creative directors and artists, daily product drops, and sneak peeks at upcoming collectibles, apparel, and soundtracks, the five-day celebration of the year’s biggest geek event will take place at home from July 22-26.
A stellar schedule of panels and live chats will include deep dives into poster creation, music shows, and sneak peeks at what Mondo has up its sleeve for upcoming toys & collectibles, soundtracks, apparel, and games.
Senior Creative Director Eric Garza said, “2020 is hard, and although we can’t all be in San Diego this July getting lost in the pop culture maelstrom that is Comic-Con, that doesn’t mean we can’t come together to bring a little madness into your living room, right? This year we’re excited to celebrate one of our favorite weeks of the year from the comfort of your own couch. No lines. No achy feet. No con crud.”
In the coming days, Mondo will reveal first looks at new products scheduled to be available for sale at Mondo’s virtual Comic-Con booth #435 for Batman, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, X-Men, and much more.
All panels, live chats, and new items for sale will be available at mondoshop.com/comic-con.
