Dagingtumbuh (DGTMB) was for the first time introduced to the public as an undergroud comic. Initiated, developed, and brought up by Eko Nugroho, its first edition was published on June, 2000. Through the concept of encountering-mainstreams which were massively acquiesced, the dgtmb implemented an open contribution system: whoever may participate and express whatever, forgoing any selection yet curation processes. As an independent media, the dgtmb was vended throughout independent market linkages as well: from hand-to-hand dealings.
In year 2004, as ideas keep on growing vigorously, Eko Nugroho produced a series of T-shirts which were self silk-screened and limitedly distributed. This expansion of the DGTMB as if answering those demands of addressees wanting the side-products, which has been thriving since year 2002. Unlocking chance to team-work learning and good responses from the public triggered our intention to seriously managing the ideas of merchandise-producing. In year 2008, Eko Nugroho unbolted the public access into various forms of the dagingtumbuh merchandises, through the dgtmb store. As a starting point, the dgtmb merchandise is now adapting works of Eko Nugroho. In future, expectantly all works ever published in the dagingtumbuh comics will be adapted into merchandise.
