The Dark Knight Light

This is an AWESOME T-Shirt! It’s from Shirt.Woot and was designed by Nathan W. Pyle. The design is simply called The Dark Knight, but it could have easily been called The Dark Knight Light! I think that would have been a much more witty name. This Batman glows in the dark!

If you want this one you better cop it now, it won’t be around for long, like mos other Shirt.Woot T-Shirts. You’re lucky that it’s even still available. The Dark Knight is available now from Shirt.Woot for $15.

Super Heroic Minimalism

Super Heroic Minimalism is an awesome new Threadless T-Shirt by designer Jonah Block that features two of my favorite Marvel characters in minimalistic form. Both Spider-Man and Iron Man are represented in the design, but surprisingly missing from the print is the caped crusader aka the Dark Knight aka Batman. It looks like Threadless legal decided to tweak the design to exclude my favorite cowled superhero.

Take a look below to see the design that is currently available for sale as well as the original submitted design. And further down you’ll see Ant-Man modification that Block made as replacements for the original Batman design.

What do you think? Did Threadless yank Batman from Super Heroic Minimalism for legal reasons or because they felt it should have been an all Marvel ensemble?

In any case, if you like this one then I think you should grab it ASAP because Threadless legal could pull the design all together at anytime!

Super Heroic Minimalism is available now from Threadless for $18. Super power not included.

Buns of Steel

Oh … My … Goodness! The current TeeFury shirt of the day has got me all giddy inside! Some of you might know that I am a BIG fan of the Man of Steel so this funny tee featuring the butt from of that super dude from Krypton has got me all excited. This will probably be my second TeeFury purchase, with the first being that Holy Indie Stickup, which featured my second favorite DC character, Batman.

So what does this all mean? It means that TeeFury should print more shirts parodying superheroes – that’s what this all means!

Filter Heroes by Chop Shop

If you are a Photoshop geek then this shirt is a must have! This super awesome mutant hero inspired shirt from Chop Shop will make any CS4 guru salivate. The shirt was designed by Threadless alumni and illustration veteran, Joshua Kemble.

After a bizarre lab experiment, this ordinary studio of designers were transformed into The Filter Heroes! No design project is too high brow to resist the powers of Lens Flare. What client could challenge the combined effects of Crystallize and Emboss!? Their only known weaknesses are large file sizes and molecular solvents.

Filter Heroes is printed on American Apparel Eggplant, Alstyle Charcoal or White in limited sizes and is available now from The Chop Shop for $20. And if you’re into saving (who isn’t) then use the coupon code “cotygun” at checkout for an additional 15% off your entire order!

Holy Indie Stickup!

What?! Talk about comic book geekery awesomeness! This great piece of Batman fan art is available now in T-Shirt form at TeeFury for just 9 bucks. MJ from compete-tee-tion curated this piece by Evanimal and I’m thankful he did because I made it my first TeeFury purchase! Yeah, yeah, I know what you’re saying – I’m the T-Shirt guy and this is my first TeeFury purchase! Well, in my defense, it was only recently that TeeFury offered shipping to to Hawaii – and I’m happy they did! 

Holy Indie Stickup!

Holie Indie Stickup!

“Admit it, when you watched the Batman tv show you were totally rooting for the villains. While Adam West was kind of a one-dimensional cornball who seems to survive from one episode to the next purely by chance, evil-doers like The Black Widow, The Joker, and Catwoman knuckled down and made elaborate plans for changing their own lives for the better. If nothing else, you have to respect their work ethic- these guys never stopped, even after it should have been clear that the deck was stacked against them in Gotham City. Maybe the best part of this shirt is that looking at it, bad as things seem, I just know the tables were turned five minutes into the next episode and Batman survived to see another day.” -MJ

Bat-Tuk-Tuk by rubyred

If Batman ever decided to go green and reinvent the Batmobile (or Tumblr) so that it was a fuel efficient bad boy, then this is what it would look like. Artist rubyred designed this tee, appropriately named Bat-Tuk-Tuk. You can pick it up now from Redbubble for $26.53. I found the tee description entertaining: 

“Alfred decided the next evolution of the Batmobile should be a little cheaper and more environmentally friendly. And, after Batman destroyed the Tumbler, he thought as punishment, he should be responsible for keeping it clean. Batman was not too impressed…”

December The Month of Superheroes at Glennz Tees

Glenn Jones, the popular indie tee designer from New Zealand, has come out with his newest design and second for the month of December at Glennz Tees. Surprisingly, it’s another Superhero based tee – this time playing on Batman! The new tee, titled “Gotham’s Youth” features the ever popular bat logo with the always funny bunny ears. Hilarious!

Earlier in the month, he released a brilliant conceived tee titled “Slowing Down” which depicts an aged Flash, the speedy hero from the DC Universe.

Needless to say, I want both of these!

Superman Trilogy Coming?

Now I know that in the past I’ve mentioned that I think Bryan Singer should be allowed to continue the Superman series he started with 2006’s Superman Returns, but, the chances of that happening is looking pretty grim. Out goes Singer’s Man of Steel and in come Millar’s Superman trilogy, possibly. 

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for Singer continuing what he started, but if Millar were given a chance to reboot or re-invent the franchise I would be all for it. Mark Miller, just in case  you’re not familiar with him, is the man behind Wanted, you know that summer blockbuster with Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy. Millar actually wrote the original Wanted comics and has done a ton of work within the different comic universes, including the big guns, DC and Marvel. 

In 2003 he wrote the critically acclaimed Superman: Red Sun, the premises of which was built on the question of what would things be like if Superman were raised in the Soviet Union. I wouldn’t care to see Soviet Superman on the big screen, but I do think that Millar has the potential to bring something new to the Superman franchise and in effect re-energize it.

Having said that, MIllar has gone on record in a recent interview with G4 and has said that he already has “plans” to make a Superman trilogy, that would be shot back to back much like the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

“I’ve had this plan for like 10 years for a big three-picture Superman thing, like a big Lord of the Rings epic, starting over from scratch again with a seven-hour Superman story. And hopefully release them one year after another,” continued Millar. “If it works out, we’ll have to start shooting next summer.”

Millar has even been reported as saying his vision of Superman is:

“Superman for the 21st Century, keeping everything we adore, but starting from scratch and making the kids love it as much as the 30-somethings.”

So it looks like the Superman saga continues. And let’s not forget, Mark Millar is a writer and not a movie director, so there is a possibility of Singer and Millar working together. The possibility of this happening, especially with Singer’s already existing vision, is slight to zero. But imagine for a moment what a creative combination that would make, much like the Nolan-Goyer combo they’ve got going for the Batman franchise.
