ABOUT US



Tony Trov and Johnny Zito, two friends from South Philly, first started collaborating while attending Temple University where they made tee shirts to fund for their short films and rock operas.

In 2008, they created Harvey Award nominated horror comics Black Cherry Bombshells and LaMorte Sisters for DC Entertainment. Trov and Zito went on to win the 2011 “Best Comic Book Creator” at the Philadelphia Geek Award for their RED5 mini-series, Moon Girl, and the Image Comics' graphic novel DOGS of Mars

In 2009, the duo began creating athletic tee shirt parodies for Cheesesteaktees while they wrote, produced and directed their first feature film, Alpha Girls: A Satanic Sorority Slasher. The film gained attention when Trov and Zito set out on a 20 city tour of the film which secured distribution through Gravitas Ventures. This led to their second feature film, American Exorcist, a tribute to the Italian Horror genre starring Bill Moseley and Falon Joslyn was released on Blu-Ray, DVD and VOD.

In 2016 Trov and Zito won the Philadelphia Geek Award for "Makers of The Year" after opening their first brick and mortar store on East Passyunk Avenue in South Philadelphia.  From there they create and sell apparel for the Philadelphia lifestyle which Philadelphia Magazine named the city's best in 2018.
