Before there was Afro Samurai (1love to Sam L.)... Before there was Boondocks (Aaron McGruder is our peoples)... There were two loveable(?) characters that shuffled their way through the many eras of Hip Hop - from when Pac first got shot to when T.I. last got popped, WON & PHIL. WON & PHIL are the premiere mascots to represent Hip Hop since the early nineties. Created and made famous by the self proclaimed "Raptoonist" Age Scott, Won & Phil's humble beginnings as a chemically induced mutated joint and blunt to socially concious(??) Hip Hop ambassadors - Age embarks on a tale with them as they travel "the yellow brick road" to see the Wizard of Hip Hop. This is their 56th book appearance, a claim that not many independent comic book artists can make.
Age Scott's newest project will be out Wonder Con Weekend at the Moscone Center in San Francisco - February 27th thru March 1st. So make sure you make it down there and support the Hip Hop industry's longest running comic book characters...and of course, AgeZilla himself(!!!)
