As we all know...

In 2006, DC Comics launched a comic title that was simply called, 52. This title was released weekly for 52 straight weeks. For any regular comic fan, this was clearly an ambitious goal, even for publishing giant like DC Comics.

Who says that only a comic publisher can launch a 52 week release?

Today marks the first Mutant Cactus 52 release. Every Wednesday, for the next 52 weeks, there will be several new magnet/button sets available in our Etsy Shop. Each week will focus on a different theme while spotlighting the work of several artists that Mutant Cactus has been fortunate enough to team up with.

Mutant Cactus 52 - Week 1

Week 1 is inspired by the monumental manga/anime work of Arika Toriyama. Below are several magnet/button sets inspired by the EPIC Dragon Ball Z (DBZ) manga/anime. The spotlight artist of the week is Victor Dandridge, of Vantage:InHouseProductions.








MC Vintage buttons/magnets are ALWAYS made from recycled comic book pages and never from digital prints.

We'll see you next Wednesday, for WEEK 2

With unique designs and a flair for fun, Mutant Cactus comes to you with awesome hand made buttons, magnets, key chains, ear rings and hair clips. It is MC's plan to make the word "radical," once again, part of your daily vernacular.

MC52 - WEEK 2

Week 2 has been inspired by 2 things.

The first was SUPER popular in the mid 90's. I'm talking about the manga/anime series of Sailor Moon. For many of us, Sailor Moon and the Sailor Scouts was our first introduction to Anime. Below is a magnet/button set inspired by the Sailor Moon manga/anime series. The spotlight artist of the week is Victor Dandridge, of Vantage:InHouseProductions, with his 8 Bit Sailor Moon and ADORABLE 8 Bit Hello Kitty.

All of these items can be found in our ETSY shop here: <a href="http://www.etsy.com/shop/mutantcactus?ref=top_trail" target="_blank">http://www.etsy.com/shop/mutantcactus?ref=top_trail</a>



The exceptionally adorable Hair Clips are curtosy of Lil' Rockstar Creations!



We've also got a few MC Vintage sets. The 2nd inspiration is Star Wars: Episode 1's RE-RELEASE this Friday in 3D. There are also a few randomly selected Vintage favorites. Remember, ALL MC Vintage Pin Back Button and Magnets are recycled from OLD comic books.





Tune in next week for MC52 - Week 3... GHOST RIDER will be our guest of honor!
