Richardson is no stranger to boundary-pushing art forms, often partnering with creatives from across the creative spectrum to celebrate diverse, adult-oriented output. The long-running label’s latest effort is a brief collaborative capsule imagined alongside Tanino Liberatore, showcasing characters from the Italian artist’s RanXerox comic series.

Appearing in underground publications like Heavy Metal, Cannibale and Frigidaire — the latter of which was a direct inspiration for Richardson MagazineRanXerox (often stylized Ranx) is Liberatore’s magnum opus, reportedly admired by the likes of Frank Zappa. Along with writer Stefano Tamburini, Liberatore created bizarre and shocking story lines set in a dystopian future rife with sex, violence and black humor, all centralized around the eponymous RanXerox, a hulking cyborg created from spare xerox parts.

In a joint effort with Liberatore, Richardson has emblazoned a host of characters and panels from the comic across various layering pieces. Stylized co-branding appears on the chest of a bomber, tees and a cap, bolstered by illustrative renderings of RanXerox himself, his paramour Lubna, various minor characters and assorted artwork from Liberatore’s lengthy back catalog. Full color renderings grace the inside of the reversible jacket, while a hoodie and T-shirts feature blown-up imagery from the pages of the comic, accompanied by a bright bulls-eye motif.

Expect the collaborative RanXerox goods to hit Richardson’s web store April 16.

Most recently, Richrdson celebrated Japan’s cherry blossom season with a special graphic capsule.
