Stussy x Real Deal CollectionJuxtapoz // Friday, 28 Sep 2012
For Fall 2012, Stussy enlisted Real Deal Comix co-creator Lawrence Hubbard to take his iconic characters and bring them to life for an artist series of t-shirts. As underground as underground gets, Real Deal is a comic book unlike any you’ve ever seen. Crudely drawn, extremely violent and hysterically funny, this is not your traditional superhero story, Real Deal deals in the genre of “Urban Terror.” Featured in the first issue of the Beastie Boys’ seminal Grand Royal magazine, Real Deal has maintained its cult status over the years, with only 6 issues in existence since its beginnings in 1989. We caught up with Real Deal’s Lawrence Hubbard in South Los Angeles to discuss childhood inspirations, the seventies, and the story of Real Deal. The video features original music by Los Angeles Funkmaster, Dam Funk.
