Hot Topic currently has a bunch of comic merch on sale right now - here’s my haul from this past weekend. I’m especially thrilled about the trompe-l’oeil Batgirl dress and the Super Best Friends Forever* shirt.
Head to ‘Gravity Falls’ with We Love Fine’s New Collection & Design Contest [Fashion]
We Love Fine has launched their latest t-shirt collection featuring designs from Disney’s Gravity Falls. The cartoon series, which started airing in Summer 2012, has drawn an immense fan following with its quirky, crytozoological themes and has quickly become a favorite cartoon amongst the ComicsAlliance staff. Indeed, two of our occasional contributors, Chris Haley and Eugene Ahn, host The Gravity Falls Gossiper, a podcast dedicated entirely to the show. So obviously we’re pleased to see We Love Fine’s new Gravity Falls collection and new t-shirt design contest, which will be judged by series creator Alex Hirsch and series art director Michael Rianda!
Casper & Richie Rich Look Fresh To Death In Harvey Comics x MISHKA NYC Collection [link]
Just in time for New York Comic Con, menswear label MISHKA NYC collaborated with Harvey Comics for a Fall 2012 capsule collection of t-shirts, tank tops, and snapbacks featuring graphics of Casper and Richie Rich. The campaign for the MISHKA NYC collection also features Harvey Comics’ classic roster of characters including Hot Stuff, Baby Huey, and Wendy, each decked out in the label’s eyeball-emblazoned street gear. While many fashion designers tend to pull inspiration from the masks and capes of DC Comics and Marvel entities, it’s actually quite refreshing to see a streetwear collection inspired by these Harvey icons.
The Avengers Terry Pullover (PATSY FUCKING WALKER, Y’ALL), $19.80 [link]
I think this may be the first time I’ve ever encountered a Hellcat shirt in an actual store, let alone one that doesn’t have a cheesy Girls’ Comic Shirt Slogan™ (i.e. “Girls Rule!,” “I Only Date Superheroes!”) emblazoned across the graphic, so yay!
