Bionic Buzz® got to cover Long Beach Comic Expo at the Long Beach Convention center. There we stopped by the Hero Within booth to interview their founder Tony Kim.
For most of his adult life, Tony Kim has struggled to find fashion solutions that were both geeky and sophisticated. Like Kal-El traveling to Earth as a baby, the journey of interesting nerd apparel has been long and lonely.
Then he and Michael Lew began collaborating on a number of fashion projects inspired by Tony’s love for the San Diego Comic-Con.
By early 2015, it became clear that it was time for something different. Hero Within was born and the conceptual phase began. A great team has formed and Hero Within became official in early 2016.
DC superheroes is where it all started with Tony many years ago- so it is an honor to partner with DC Comics™ for the launch of Hero Within’s first collection. In the spring of 2018, Hero Within added the Marvel Comics license and then Star Trek in late 2019.
At the comic expo we got to learn about their latest item, the Batman Tactical Jacket. It is versatile, subtle, durable and stylish, the Batman Tactical Jacket is a must for any DC and Dark Knight fan. Features a premium nylon shell, winter insulation, the Bat logo embroidered across the back, 4 interior/exterior pockets, 2 velcro name patches, Bat logo zipper and Gotham City zipper pull. Everything you need for a night out in Gotham City.
