Power Computing Sluggo Kick-Ass Kozik Poster MacWorld '96
This rare and controversial poster was designed by Frank Kozik, and features his 'Puggo' version of Sluggo from the Nancy comic. The original owner has this to say about the poster he got at the '96 Boston MacWorld: "It was released at Macworld '96 by PowerComputing, the most successful of the Apple Mac clone companies. Few of the posters were handed out, when one of the "SUITS" decided that they would no longer distribute them. They were removed from the booth and the show-floor locations where they were being handed out."
The stories surrounding this poster include real and threatened lawsuits by the Nancy comic distributor over copyright violations and by Intel for being it's trademark being slagged. The word "ass" was also a sore point at Power Computing. This poster has been professionally mounted on a 1/4" wood backing panel that is not removable. There is a damaged corner in the wood at the bottom left of the frame where it fell from it's wall mount. The poster has no damage except the wrinkle outside the black border.

The original owner was given this shirt as a gift circa 1997. He never wore or washed the shirt, it had been in his closet for over ten years. Here is a close-up of the front.
The owner had this to say: "However, despite the lack of wear and washing, there is a slight discoloration at the neckline, a quarter-size light stain on the lower front of the shirt (the stain would be below the belt line if wearing the shirt and not visible), and finally another mark on the back side of the right shoulder.

There was a VIP room at the Mama Kin Music Hall in Boston in 1995, not sure about the details for '96. MVB might be Most Valuable Bruin but that is conjecture. The shirt has been worn and washed several times over the years and has some lightly discolored areas that are noticeable up close but none on the area of the graphics.
