Roberson, Allred, Coover, Samnee And Francavilla ‘Monkey Around’ for Threadless [link]

As the fourth and latest installment of ThreadlessComics-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).

My favorite thing about Ellie [the ghost of a girl who died in the 60’s] is that unlike the standard depiction of ghosts floating around in the clothes they presumably died in, she actually changes outfits every issue. In I Zombie #1, she’s wearing the quintessential mod ensemble: a black & white colorblock shift dress, paired up with black boots.
… in which, I realized another reason why I loved her outfit so much - I totally own that dress!

[thrifted at Savers for $2.99]
Side note: My friend Lulu Bonanza even did a mini-feature/video of me wearing the Ellie dress, discussing Mike Allred’s art and the fashion in I Zombie, if you feel so inclined… :D
Now all I need is for my best friend to dress more like Gwen the zombie…
P.S. I Zombie #4 came out yesterday! GET!
