Animal Man ‘Evolve or Die’ shirt arrives in stores, then debuts in comic

In a clever bit of product placement and cross-promotion, DC Comics is offering “Evolve or Die” T-shirts featuring Travel Foreman’s cover for Animal Man #1 just ahead of the shirt’s debut in the seventh issue of the series. It certainly makes sense within the context of the relaunched title, which opened with a Believer interview in which Buddy Baker was asked how it felt “to have your face plastered on kids’ dorm rooms and T-shirts all over the country.”

The shirts will be available in direct market stores, and at, at the end of the month (prices range from $18.95 to $24.95, depending on size). There’s no word yet as to when we should expect that “World’s Best Grandpa” design.

Animal Man #7, by Jeff Lemire and Steve Pugh, arrives March 7.



I hope this means more Steve Pugh art is coming down the line!

Nice, gotta get me one of those.

Then I’ll just need a “I’M NOT DAREDEVIL” sweater for my life to be complete.


With or without those ruffles on the Daredevil sweater? That did start as a Christmas Cosby sweater.

That shirt’s too busy for my tastes, but I did pre-order the Swamp Thing logo shirt this month. Excited to get that.

DCBS has the Animal Man shirts at a discount ($14/$16) in the “Apparel” section under “Pre-orders”:

I wish praise for this book would die.
