Buffy Summers may have flunked the written, but the first Buffy the Vampire Slayer Mondo poster passes with flying colors. Two colors, in fact, as the gorgeous poster by artist Sara Deck, which depicts the iconic confrontation scene between Buffy and the Master from the season 1 finale, “Prophecy Girl,” comes in a dark purplish regular version and a bright red variant version. The Buffy the Vampire Slayer poster, alongside a new pin and a new Rich Kelly print of John Carpenter’s Big Trouble in Little China, go on sale at Mondo today.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer is one of the most beloved teen horror-comedy shows of the past 20 years, and yet it’s never had an art print commissioned for Mondo. That changes today, with Sara Deck’s “Prophecy Girl” print, depicting Buffy’s iconic prom dress and leather jacket combo that she wore in the season 1 finale to fight the Big Bad, the Master.
“The finale of Season 1, ‘Prophecy Girl,’ remains a pivotal moment for Buffy,” Sara Deck told Mondo. She is finally ready to face The Master, and despite knowing that her death has been prophesied, she is willing to sacrifice herself for the greater good. In this episode she discovers a well of strength and resilience within her far greater than she knew she had. Here she has truly embraced her destiny as THE SLAYER, and that was really important for me to capture with this poster.”
The regular and variant versions of the poster go on sale today on MondoShop.com at 11:00 A.M. CT. The regular version is a 24″x36″ screenprinted poster limited edition of 175 prints that can be purchased for $50. It’s expected to ship to the US and and other countries in July 2020.
