Cool Comics Swag – Marijuanaman Match Books

Quite appropriately, Ziggy Marley’s “Marijuanaman” graphic novel from Image Comics sees release on April 20th, 2011, or 420 as it’s known to the more “bud” inclined. There’s a fun event going on at Golden Apple Comics in Los Angeles with Ziggy, Joe Casey & Jim Mahfood that day and part of the promotion includes these very appropriate and very cool Marijuanaman match books! There’s only one other product I can think of that would be more appropriate, but you’d need a special medical license to buy it — who knows, maybe they’ve already set that up! Anyway you look at it, these match books are a great promotional item. Nicely done!

Marijuanaman, seriously? I have nothing for admiration for the musical work of Ziggy Marley, but this just seems to perpetuate a stereotype.
