VICIOUSKILL is a relatively young company, but they have been growing rapidly amongst the nerd community. They specialize in clothing geared towards fans of comics, video games, and other pop culture characters. Their shirts have a design that they're predominantly know for, the "Running Man", but their artist, Victor Magana is an amazing artist and comes up with tons of other cool designs also.
Buying their merch is more than just buying clothes, pins, etc., it's a hobby. You want to collect every design they come out with because they're so sick.
They always hit the con circuit hard and do live printings of their designs, which is really cool also. They just released 4 designs that they're gonna be debuting at Los Angeles Comic Con at the end of this month, one of which you can see at the bottom of this page. I'm really looking forward to see what these guys do in the future, I'm sure what ever it is, they're gonna kill it.
