Last year at San Diego Comic-Con, Mondo released an amazing vinyl soundtrack album for Batman: The Animated Series that was actually shaped like a Batman symbol, these year Mondo will be releasing this epic San Diego Comic-Con 2015 Exclusive Superman: The Animated Series Die-Cut Single Record featuring the vinyl record cut in the shape of the Man of Steel’s iconic “S” emblem in classic red vinyl or Kryptonite green vinyl. The album itself will feature the opening and ending themes to Superman: TAS as well as the theme from the New Batman/Superman Adventures, by the great Shirley Walker, and if nothing else, it’s nice to see the Superman show finally getting some attention, the B-Side has been screen printed with Superman’s shield logo. The single’s cover artwork was designed by Phantom City Creative, who also designed the cover for Mondo’s Batman: The Animated Series Die-Cut Single. If you aren’t planning on making it out to San Diego, good news: While the album debuts at Comic-Con, it’ll be available online later in July. While the video announcement doesn’t include the price, last year’s Batman 12″ sold for $25, so one assumes that it’ll be along the same lines. You’ll need to be on a look up as these are anticipated to sell quickly.
Justin Erickson (of Phantom City Creative) explained, “I wanted to make this a companion piece to my packaging design for Batman: The Animated Series. While Batman is darker and more serious, Superman needed to be bright, colorful and energetic to reflect the tonal differences between the two.” This Comic-Con exclusive features the theme music of the inimitable Shirley Walker, whose leadership on this and Batman: The Animated Series set the standard for the music of the DC Comics Animated Universe for decades to come.
