Endlessly searching…

It appears that Walt Simonson dropped what by all measures has been regarded as an “ill” Thor shirt, the likes of which we mere mortals have yet to see. I don’t know about you, but I know that I would give… well likely I’d give $25 for a good Thor shirt. That’s a lot for a tshirt!

But since none of these have hit ebay yet, I’ll have to wait and bide my time with these lesser, but still pretty cool, Thor shirts.

Why, oh why, do you have to kill this shirt with the “It’s Hammer Time!” slogan? Seriously.

And in addition, came across this one while searching for Mr. Simonson on ebay came across this gem. File it under “doing cool shit before you were born” or also known as “comic con’s were not always cool”. Seriously. But this is cool.

Halloween’s right around the corner.

They’re doing great things with costumes these days, adult and kid alike. There’s little excuse to do a bad job on a costume if you’re going to do it. You can go all out, get creative. You’ve got the lead time. When I have gotten into costume, I usually have done the minimalist thing. I had some success in high school dressing up as a hippie, which was somewhat funny because I went to school with kids who dressed that way everyday.*

But if you’re going for the Superhero vibe this halloween, do it right. There’s some prepackaged stuff that looks good, and if comic book and anime conventions are a sign of anything, it’s that you don’t have to be that intelligent to put together a banger costume. So there’s no excuse, nor will you impress anyone, with this.

If you’re going to buy this shirt, buy it to wear because it features a headless Spider-Man. That’s enough by itself. But don’t pull the “tshirt and cheap mask” look this halloween, because a girl dressed as a sexy kitten, or sexy police officer, or sexy star trek character, is not going to vibe on your lack-of-care cool. Go all in, or don’t. It’s easy.

*Thinking about my past halloween costume also made me question – how inappropriate is it to dress up as a “homeless person” for halloween – very, somewhat, or not at all? I think I fall into the “somewhat very” category, though my very awesome significant other says it’s not all that offensive. I think I’ll stick with handing out candy this year.

Vintage Bat-shirt.

While scouting the ‘bay for shirts to post about over on TeeTillDeath, I stumbled upon this piece of vintage 70s Batman merchandise from seller drob50spurs:

Not only is this an awesome shirt, but the seller describes it as “buttery”. A “buttery” Batman shirt. That’s pink (description says orange, but it really looks pink to me). Def way cooler than any all over print Bat-shirt you can pick up at Target.

Who DOESN’T need a good Joker tee?

Okay, let’s get real here. Heath Ledger did a good job in the most recent Batman movie as The Joker. Stole the show in a solid movie, but I walked away from the theater saying, “well, duh.” Christian Bale’s laughable latex voice was enough to ensure Ledger was the golden hit from that movie, but let’s not discredit a good job.

But he was NO Jack Nicholson. And even Jacko doesn’t do the comics version credit.

So stepping back, if your experience was anything like mine in the early to mid 90’s, it seemed like there was at least one weirdo who ran with the freak / scumbag / weirdo kids who had the illest weird joker shirt. He probably didn’t read comics on the regular, let alone want to talk about it to people who did. But he did hang out at the pool hall, smoke cigs by age 12, and tried to kick it to girls in 14 hole doc martens. These Joker shirts were not an easy commodity to come by, and with that in mind, I want to shout out to all the weirdos who wore Joker shirts when it counted.

Here’s four joker shirts, rated from 1 (acceptable) to 4 (aces). Bid hard.

1. OKAY. points for it being ledger-free, but the giant oversize print makes me think too much 2010, not enough 1990.

2. GOOD. Retro, cool. Slicked back Joker hair… maybe if you’re 15 and wearing this, you have black hair slicked back too?

3. GREAT. Now we’re cooking. Big props for this one being on a screen stars tee, a true mark of good late 1980’s t-shirts.

4. AWESOME. The Killing Joke. Perfect. Rep and respect.

Speaking of Joker shirts…

You know some wise guy kid wore this one to his senior prom in 1989.

You just know it.

That being said, 200 bucks? It’s like the Joker himself set the price on this one.

Does the Joker like MMA?

This t-shirt makes me wonder.

Or maybe he has a henchman from the Jersey Shore or something, I dunno.
