DiDio & Lee Say Early "Rebirth" Response is 'Uncharted Territory' for DC Comics
At this point, nearly every comic fan owns at least one piece of clothing featuring the work of legendary artists like Jack Kirby or José Luis García-López. But finding apparel that matches the aesthetic of modern comics has been harder to come by.
This week, Marvel and short-run t-shirt site WeLoveFine.com took a step towards rectifying that by starting off a new weekly series of shirts based on modern Marvel cover art. Each Wednesday (natch), the site will post a new series of cover print shirts for purchase at $15 each. The current crop includes Andre Aruajo’s cover to Spidey #5, David Lopez’s Ms. Marvel #6 and a bevy of others.
Check them out on the WeLoveFine.com shop while they last.
If you’re going to fight Apocalypse, you better wear the right shoes for the occasion.
Supra Footwear is about to release a limited-edition sneaker inspired by Fox’s X-Men: Apocalypse. Called the X-Men Vaider, the black high-top features the signature X-emblem, and an embossed leather overlay that gives a nod to the costumes in the film.
What better way to celebrate Arbor Day than with a tribute to the greatest of all tree-like aliens (Flora colossus), Groot?
The Force, it’s calling to you. Just let it into your closet with this dazzling new Star Wars fashion collection from Her Universe and Hot Topic.
Designed by Leetal Platt and Kelly Cercone, who won the Her Universe design competition held last summer at Comic-Con International, the limited-edition line features nine pieces inspired by characters from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
For the latest capsule collection from Italian fashion label Valentino, designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli looked to Wonder Woman for inspiration. The result is a line of clothing that “pays tribute to all women.”
While they don’t take a literal approach to the iconic DC Comics superheroine, you can see her represented with the stars — lots and lots of stars — that cover everything from sneakers to handbags to coats, and with the eagle motif on some of the tops and jackets.
Protecting Neo-Gotham is exhausting work, especially when you have a curmudgeonly Bruce Wayne breathing down your neck, and a rogues gallery nipping at your heels. So why not unwind in this Batman Beyond costume robe?
Equipped with a hood, to protect your secret identity and cover your damp hair, the 100-percent polyester robe is emblazoned with the red Bat-symbol. It also has “spikes” on the sleeves, presumably for decorative purposes only — although you may find otherwise if The Joker attacks in the bathroom.
Following a 2015 collaboration, Japanese clothing label A Bathing Ape and Dragon Ball are reteaming for an even bigger collection.
Launching April 23, this new line brings together Akira Toriyama beloved creations — among them, Goku, Master Roshi and Shenron — and BAPE’s own Baby Milo on graphic T-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies. There are also accessories, like tote bags, a coffee mug and a pillow.
With Pokémon’s 20th anniversary in full swing, Pikachu is popping up everywhere, even in lingerie sections.

When you’re ready to hop on your bike and hit the open road, you can now choose a side — Team Cap or Team Iron Man — with these officially licensed Marvel motorcycle helmets. Or, you can say to hell with both of them and justgo with Team Punisher, because when in doubt, bet on Frank.
Produced by HJC, the helmets boast a lightweight advanced polycarbonate composite shell, an advanced channeling ventilation system, and an anti-scratch face shield that’s particularly striking on the Iron Man version.
If you’re determined to risk life and limb by running around in circles, devouring dots and avoiding ravenous ghosts, then you should at least look good while doing.
The age-old question of whether The Joker prefers boxers or briefs is answered with the new wave of adult-size Underoos. (Ever the trickster, the Clown Prince of Crime is apparently a boxer briefs kind of guy.)
The Joker men’s set is joined by Supergirl, Deadpool, Robin, Dawn of Justice Wonder Woman, and BB-8 for women. There are also Civil War Captain America and Iron Man boxer brief sets for boys.
Beginning as a series of retro-style statuettes, DC Comics’ Bombshells has inspired variant covers, a comic book, cosplay and, now, a fashion collection.
Hot Topic has unveiled a limited-edition DC Comics Bombshells line that includes a Batwoman hat and baseball dress, Wonder Woman shorts and top, a Poison Ivy dress, and a Harley Quinn aviator jacket.
After hitting the runway last fall in Milan as part of Moschino’s spring 2016 collection, the Powepuff Girls are heading to a Hot Topic near you.
Just as Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup make their triumphant return to television, the retailer has unveiled a fashion collection inspired by the three heroes of Townsville. The Powerpuff Girls line features three dresses representing each of the little powerhouses — in corresponding blue, pink and green, of course — plus a top and skirt, T-shirt and sweatshirt depicting all three.
The Suicide Squad movie doesn’t arrive for another four months yet, but already DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Consumer Products are filling stores with licensed apparel.

Rapper-turned-actor-turned-entrepreneur Nas has teamed with the Ghostbusters franchise for a fashion collection inspired by the hit movies.
