Stan Lee POW! Ring

Stan Lee is one of the most heralded comic book writers of our time. He helped to define the genre. Many of the superhero characters that we love today and can’t wait to read and watch on the big screen originated from the mind of Stan Lee. He co-created characters like Spider-Man, the Hulk, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, and the Avengers.

At the age of 89, Stan Lee is still in the comic book game. He not only continues to make appearances in feature films from Marvel Studios, but he also runs POW (Purveyors of Wonder) Entertainment. POW produced Stan Lee’s Lightspeed and that network’s reality television series Who Wants to Be a Superhero?

Right now you can score an official Stan Lee ring emballozied with the POW logo. Each sterling silver ring is part of a limited run of 250 pieces and comes in a custom glass see-thru ring display case. The ring also includes a certificate of authenticity signed by Stan himself. The sterling silver collectible ring is available now for $275. Don’t have $275 lying around? They have a non Sterling Silver version going for $45.

Superman Caped Knee High Socks

These Superman Caped Knee High Socks from 80sTees is so bad that they’re awesome. Seriously, if you’ve got the audacity to use these socks (of course, with shorts not long pants) then you’ve earned a pair of thumbs of up from me. There really isn’t much more to be said about these.

The Superman Caped Knee High Socks is available now from 80sTees for $10.00.

And if you’re amongst the die-hard group of people that will dig these socks then you probably will love Justice League: Doom, the latest DC Animated movie. Justice League: Doom is available now from Amazon for $18.99.

101 Superhero T-Shirts for the Ultimate Comic Book Mega Fan

2011 has definitely been the summer of big comic movies. Thor, X-Men: First Class, Green Lantern, and of course Captain America. Next summer, we’ll get The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers – something that I’d never think I’d ever see on the big screen. Comic book culture and superheroes are bigger than ever. To celebrate this and because I’m still coming off a high from covering the crazy Comic-Con costumes of 2011, I’ve put together an amazing list of 101 Superhero T-Shirts for the Ultimate Comic Book Mega Fan.

I’d love to hear which one of these are your favorites and whether or not you own any of these tees! And if you know of a superhero shirt not on this list then please tell me about it. Leave a comment below in the comments section and let me know!

Comic-Con 2011 Costume Spotting (Day 3)

Comic-Con 2011 is being held from July 21-24 this year and like last year, I’ll be costume spotting some of the best and most wacky costumes to be seen! I always get a kick at seeing what people decide to dress up as to Comic-Con. My favorite from Day 3 has got to be The Phantom – a great photo by Joe Osterloh!

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.

Co-Tee TV Episode 72: Fantastic Fur Face Boy, Vaughn de Heart and a French Lesson

In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear The Fantastic Fur Face Boy and review the Les Gens Courageux by Vaughn de Heart, a brand that was born out of one persons love for fashion and a single random moment.

Fur Face Boy sent me an insane amount of T-Shirts from their Series 3 Line. I will be featuring the shirts throughout Co-Tee TV Episodes 70-79 so definitely keep an eye out for even more Fur Face Boy in the coming weeks! See Episode 70 of Co-Tee TV for the Fur Face Boy full review.

Coty’s Thoughts:

Les Gens Courageux by Vaughn de Heart. Pros: Les Gens Courageux comes packaged in a large custom black Vaughn de Heart plastic bag and is further wrapped in a separate plastic package (great way to protect the T-Shirt during the shipment). This V-Neck shirt is wonderfully soft and is nicely form fitting. I love that the neck hole is not extremely wide and long like many V-Necks that I have experienced in the past, instead it is just right. The single color, black print on the front features excellent typography and the print itself is not too think. Each Vaughn de Heart shirt comes packaged with a Vaughn de Heart drawstring canvas bag for free. This is definitely a nice surprise for anyone that orders from Vaughn de Heart. Also included in the package was a Vaughn de Heart sticker. Cons: I wasn’t the biggest fan of the print on the left sleeve since it was a bit thick. I also thought that the print on the front was enough as is, since the simplicity and message of the front is what makes the shirt a solid pick. Price: $13 but you can save 10% off your order by using the coupon code “COTY” at checkout.
