Someone gets too close to the Gowanus Canal and falls in. Instead of disappearing forever into the polluted waterway forever, they emerge with mutant super powers. Above is ‘Gowanus Pete’ a character soon to featured in the new comic Power Play. The comic is a collaboration between Kurt Christenson and Reilly Brown. We love this character and think it needs to be plastered on everything…oh! and in a live action movie… that we’d like to star in! See more details about the comic on

…As far as we know this is not Pete from Gowanus Furnitures…although…have you seen how cool his cutting boards are? They are so cool! they only could only could be made with super powered tentacles! sweet! Go Pete!
