Roberson, Allred, Coover, Samnee And Francavilla ‘Monkey Around’ for Threadless [link]
As the fourth and latest installment of Threadless’ Comics-On Tees series, writer Chris Roberson (iZombie, Memorial) collaborates with artists Mike Allred, Colleen Coover, Chris Samnee, and Francesco Francavilla to create a collection of t-shirts entitled Monkey Around. The Comics-On Tees series (which debuted at San Diego Comic Con 2011) features a fusion of fashion, art, and comic narratives; each story is created by a team of writers and artists to convey a sequential story within the limits of four t-shirts.
Written by Roberson, Monkey Around starts off with a lab monkey who acquires a device that allows him to travel to “the other layers of reality — comic books!” (as seen in issue/shirt #1, illustrated by Allred). The primate protagonist then hops across the comic realms of romance comics (issue/shirt #2, illustrated by Coover), superhero comics (issue/shirt #3, illustrated by Samnee), and ends his adventure in a monster comic (issue/shirt #4, illustrated by Francavilla).
