“It’s a strange phenomenon: I’m not *proud* of being held in thrall by a property owned by such a large and oppressive global brand. Which, I guess, is why I’ve chosen to make my own version of that property. An autobiographical interpretation of something that’s benignly irradiated my life. And now I benignly irradiate yours, if you’ll have me…”

Hateball is proud to present the next evolutionary step for his debut sofubi Zine Wolf… the awesome Duck Wolf! Featuring the same Teen Wolf-inspired body as the original release, this new version comes complete with a removable oversized mask that’s been bootlegged and refined from a vintage Donald Duck toy. Making its debut in a sleek unpainted black soft vinyl, Duck Wolf comes packed with a 20 page ‘zine plus 2 knockoff-style Disney patches for just $55 plus shipping. Go check him out in the Hateball store right here
