Lo Pan Express: Ed “Big Daddy” Roth Meets Big Trouble In Little China

A reader who commented on the Lo Pan Ate Your Posse sticker pointed me to this amazing print by Jason Chalker of Manly Art. Holy six demon bag!

David Lo Pan is back with two wives and a monkey monster to chauffeur his heavenly hotrod through the hell of the too-cool-to-stay-dead sinners. Lo Pan‘s not such a bad guy… he wants what every red-blooded man wants… to go off and rule the universe from beyond the grave.”

Indeed. Buy “Lo Pan Express” here . (Thanks, Tracey at KOOP!)
