Electric Zombie – Wrestling Sneak Peek
Wrestlemania is upon us once again. Back when I was a kid, and well through high school, I was a huge fan of professional wrestling. Be it WWF (now WWE) or WCW, I did my best to catch it each week, and Wrestlemania would fall somewhere around my birthday, so my friends and I would get together and watch it. Once I got into college, I sort of lost touch with wrestling, until recently, a few weeks ago when I started watching it again (per the suggestion of Kyle Crawford). Electric Zombie will be releasing a bunch of wrestling related product in the next few days in celebration.
Of course, with any new EZ release, there is a bunch of fantastic shirts. I worked on one that is a mash-up with one of my favorite wrestlers, Mankind, and Leatherface from Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I only worked on one shirt this time around, but the other two shirts pictured are by the incredibly talented Brandon Hart, and there are a couple other shirts by another talented guy, Horsebites. If you grab some shirts, they come in a box (similar to last year), that includes art from my Legion of Doom shirt that I designed for EZ last year. This is, in my opinion, the best box that EZ has put out.
Now, possibly the most exciting thing to come from this release, is the inclusion of the Wrestling Buddies, or Wrestling Deadies as EZ is calling them. I loved these things as a kid, and I helped EZ update the buddies to fit in with the general them of Electric Zombie, emphasis on the Zombie. This first go around for these includes Hulk Hogan and the “Macho Man” Randy Savage (“Macho Man” is, of course, my all time favorite wrestler. These things will be fairly limited, but I can say without a doubt that you don’t want to miss out on these.
I believe everything drops friday, but I believe Kyle was thinking about releasing them a day earlier so you might want to check the Electric Zombie site tomorrow. I’ll update with the appropriate links when the items have been release. And don’t forget to watch Wrestlemania on Sunday!
Update: You can grab all the new stuff right now, unfortunately the Wrestling Deadies sold out before I could edit the post.
