Tapping into our nostalgic sensibilities is something Mondo has done very well over the years, and that certainly applies to their latest series of posters. If the phrase "Life is like a hurricane…" is something that triggers a familiar, catchy TV theme song, you might be a DuckTales fan, and if that's the case, then you'll love Mondo's latest posters, which go on sale this week.
Mondo gave us a preview of the posters that are going on sale tomorrow (August 28) at MondoTees.com. The one above is one of two posters that focuses on Scrooge McDuck, a character so rich, he's actually swimming in money. Or in the case of his poster, caught in a shower of coins. While his umbrella keeps his head from being pelted by change, his top hat serves as a bucket to catch his winnings. The Scrooge posters come courtesy of Mondo artist DKNG.
And here's one from artist Anne Benjamin that showcases the nephews, ducklings Huey, Dewey and Louie…
Or if you're going for something a bit more classic, there's JJ Harrison's Ducktales poster.
That one works in a few more characters as well as Uncle Scrooge's money pit, and seems to be the biggest throwback to the Disney animated series.
Finally, Phantom City Creative came up with this excellent one for villainous sorceress Magica De Spell, who appears to be moments away from getting her
