Assassination USA, now for some great 60s political propaganda artwork by famed illustrator Jack Kirby who's better known works included DC and Marvel comics, this was taken from a little known underground hip magazine from the 60s and 70's called 'It', much in the same vain as the perhaps more famous Oz Magazine. This was from a piece by Claudia Dreifus of the New York Times on the corruption and conspiracy of a dark time in American history, as political assassinations became as American as Apple Pie, in a time when John and Robert Kennedy were murdered, followed by Malcolm X, Martin Luther King amongst major national figures. There's an interesting story to where this came from, we'll talk about that later, it's a real striking image with an over sized print featuring smoking handguns, tweed jackets and cigs, looks great on a white tee for summer, the cotton tee makes up the assassins clobber, set off by a vivid red print with contrasting yellowed faces. Some more forthcoming releases at the sample stage. Next up a new version of our two C's signature tee, available on both Navy and Orange with unique quotes from film and philosophy on the hem. Billy Casper will star on a nice Natural tee for summer, we've tried to disguise the fact this one was sampled on a t-shirt that would be snug on Kenny Baker, but the print - based on the original theatrical poster, looks cracking with a nice old school look and feel to it. Kes is one of our favourite films, so why not let young Casper run free on a tee? All will be available over the next month or so. YHN
