MONDO Starts Horror Video Game Poster Series With Castlevania and Silent Hill

Note from the Doc:

The only thing I dislike about this whole series is that the releases begin at Emerald City Comicon and San Diego Comicon because I might as well be following a yellow brick road to ECC and SDCC is like riding Artax through a swap to find the Southern Oracle. 

The first three Castlevania soundtracks are incredible, memorable and favorites of mine since childhood. I love listening to bands cover them. I cannot wait to own them. I enjoyed Symphony of the Night but will have to become more familiar with it the music before I consider investing. Interested what we'll get to see for cover art and if they'll be gatefold. They'll be post SDCC releases so we have some time on those.

To whet your palate while waiting for the vinyl release:

CASTLEVANIA 

CASTLEVANIA II: SIMON'S QUEST
Note: The Doc's Favorite!

CASTLEVANIA III: DRACULA'S CURSE


CASTLEVANIA: SYMPHONY OF THE NIGHT
The artwork will be hitting after ECC on Mondo's site. See full release and samples below.
