90’s SURF CLOTHING COMPANY THIRD WAVE 99 RETURNS THIS NOVEMBER WITH NEW COMIC SERIES AND CLOTHING LINE FROM SCOUT COMICS – PREVIEWS AT NYCC WITH EXCLUSIVE COLLECTORS COVER
(New York, NY – Friday October 8th 2021) SCOUT COMICS .proudly announces that the popular 90’s Florida surf clothing company THIRD WAVE 99 has returned. This coming November, Scout is releasing a mini-series exploring the dark history and controversy surrounding the surfing line. Four new clothing designs are NOW AVAILABLE to celebrate the return of this once iconic surf brand!
Established in 1999, Third Wave was a popular upstart Florida based surf shop/ clothing brand before it disappeared after being purchased by a large corporation. THIRD WAVE 99 wasn’t your ordinary surf shop/clothing company. It initially started off as a support group that helped troubled individuals, young and old, deal with addiction. The group used surfing as a replacement for negative and self-destructive habits, helping reform many lives in a positive manner. The brand developed a cult-like following throughout the state of Florida in the late 90’s. Eventually the line was sold off when one of the owners went missing.
Original THIRD WAVE 99 logo designer, Luis XIII, has agreed to handle the art and coloring chores for the upcoming series. Luis XIII said the following about the company he once worked for:
“I am very excited to be part of this brand once again, over 20 years later. I can’t wait to dive head first into the rich history of Third Wave 99. It’s going to be a fun ride.”
Scout’s President, James Haick III, will be writing the series, and looks back fondly on the Florida based surf company:
“I grew up in Florida in the late 90’s and remember owning a few Third Wave 99 t-shirts back in the day. I had no idea until recently the controversy surrounding it. I’m looking forward to exploring the legend of Third Wave 99.”
THIRD WAVE 99 launches at New York Comic Con 2021 (NYCC) from October 7th to 10th, with an exclusive collectible cover and signings from writer James Haick III. Catch Third Wave in stores and online this November.
