Hard Case Cunningham!

Comics have always been a source of imagery for use in other medium – but suitcases? That’s a new one on me. Ace creator Darryl Cunningham (of Psychiatric Tales fame etc) was commissioned to create some eye-catching designs for a range of suitcases for major maker Samsonite, and here’s the result.

They aren’t available in the UK yet, but you can buy the full set from amazon.com for a tad over $500. (We have tried to contact Samsonite’s UK PR agency for info, but no reply as yet).

Speaking as someone who wants to make their suitcase stand out on airport carousels, definitely something to be considered.
