When you visit Tom Whalen's upcoming show at Mondo Gallery in Austin Texas, one of the first things you should notice is how the artist's work celebrates a wide range of subject matter. From Marvel and DC Comics' heroes, to Toho's Godzilla, to the work of Rankin-Bass and more, Whalen's silkscreened prints are a celebration of pop culture icons of the past, present and future.
In advance of the show's opening, Mondo has provided CBR News with the exclusive first look at two of Whalen's pieces -- a matching set of Red and Yellow-themed Daredevil prints depicting the blind Marvel Comics hero and some of the most important moments and villains of his career.

"Pulp Menagerie" will feature original screen prints by the incredibly talented artist Tom Whalen. The term "Pulp Menagerie" speaks to the varied subject matter on exhibit. The pieces are akin to the diverse, exotic creatures and curiosities that were captured, groomed and showcased in the royal menageries of the middle ages. Also featured will be some truly unique in-gallery visuals that ascend the theme to a new dimension!
The exhibit will feature titles including Godzilla, Mad Monster Party, Batman and many more! More info and artwork preview here.
