What’s Tephlon Funk?
It’s a Bande Dessinée series created by Stephane Metayer about a teenaged girl from Queensbridge. Who’s entire life turns upside down, it’s heavily inspired by both hip hop & anime. The words Tephlon Funk!® means to be strong and always stand out. We really wanted to create a dope, authentic and unique story about New York City set in the 90’s.
A big love letter to all the 5 boroughs Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and of course Staten Island. This is more than just a series, it’s an international movement! Here at tephlonfunk.com you’ll find incredible artwork, comics, music and exclusive merchandise. We’d like to thank everyone for all the continued support and hope you guys enjoy it.
