Initially launching with the Series 1 range of T-shirts revolving around Stussy’s iconic branding as well as a launch event at Meltdown Comics, a special artist Series 2 capsule is set to drop. We speak with several of the personalities brought on board who were each given free rein on a super hero of their choice. Hear the likes of artists’ Mr. Cartoon, John K., Noah Butkus, Gary Panter, Bill Plympton and Will Sweeney as well as Marvel’s Axel Alonso and Stussy’s Adam Jay Weissman all speak about project and the influence that Marvel has brought upon them.
Rap royalty Pete Rock recently played the Stussy x Marvel launch party at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles. Pete Rock is not only an accomplished DJ/Producer/Rapper but is also a big comic book head. We caught up with Pete at Forbidden Planet comic book shop in New York City to discuss his deep love for comics and hip hop’s connection to superheroes.
