To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the X-Men, as well as the X-Men: Battle of the Atom crossover, WeLoveFine has unveiled an informational graphic by Leigh Wortley featuring characters from every era of Marvel’s mutant saga, from 1963 to the present. There are 150 represented, but considering the size of the X-universe, those probably aren’t all of them.
Conventions are always a great place to see creators and celebrities, but it’s rare that you’re given the opportunity to meet a Muppet. At New York Comic Con, Cookie Monster — and his “assistant” David Rudman — will appear Saturday from 11 a.m. until noon and from 2 p.m. until 3 p.m. at the WeLoveFine booth (#1836), where you can also buy an exclusive NYCC steampunk Cookie Monster shirt.
Cookie Monster isn’t the only special guest appearing at their booth:
Axe Cop‘s journey toward world domination continues this week with the launch of a T-shirt line at WeLoveFine.com. You can now sport the webcomic-turned-animated series by brothers Malachai and Ethan Nicolle on your torso, mashed up with A Game of Thrones, Kool-Aid Man, Super Mario Bros. and various food items, like tacos and cereal.
Check out the shirts below.
WeLoveFine.com recently debuted a new Captain Marvel shirt featuring the heroine punching a dinosaur with the slogan “WWCMD?” — What Would Captain Marvel Do? — beneath it. But maybe it should have read, “WWKSDD?”
Captain Marvel and Pretty Deadly writer Kelly Sue DeConnick began curating a T-shirt collection at WeLoveFine.com a few months ago, bringing the world several Captain Marvel-themed shirts as well as those Fake Geek Girl tops for guys. She donated her commissions from each sale to the Girls Leadership Institute.
In the four or so months since DeConnick started doing this, not only has she become the top-selling partnership for the site, but her donations have enabled the institute to provide room and board for one summer camper. “I’m reeling, you guys,” she wrote on her blog. “I could not ask for a better birthday present. Thank you. I’m so proud of you I could pop.”
You can find an interview with DeConnick about the charity and her day job on the charity’s website. “Why did I want to support you work? Because … because I think you’re doing something special and I want as many girls as possible to have access to your programs. Because I want a more positive experience of coming into womanhood for my daughter than the one I had,” she told them. Much more at the link.
WeLoveFine.com is offering discounts on its T-shirts and art prints all day Thursday. The sale includes all of its Marvel shirts like this one featuring Armor, or this one featuring Cable and Deadpool riding on a dinosaur that shoots lasers out of its eyes.
Here are the details on the sale:
Daredevil #28 is about “one man young Daredevil feared, and now Matt Murdock is representing him in court.” The cover sports a young bully wearing a T-shirt that claims, “I beat Daredevil,” and now thanks to the folks at WeLoveFine.com, you too can claim you got the best of Matt Murdock with a similar T-shirt.
The “I Beat Daredevil” is one of several new ones on the site; they’ve also got the “Fake Geek Girl” shirt Kevin linked to on Friday, as well as several Hawkeye-related shirts that were curated by Matt Fraction — including one that simply says “Bro.”
Check out the I Beat Daredevil shirt, as well as the Chris Samnee cover that inspired it, after the jump.
It’s been, oh, about six months since the last “fake geek girls” flare-up, but no matter when the next argument erupts, WeLoveFine.com has you covered.
Showcased in the T-shirt collection curated by writer Kelly Sue DeConnick are two designs made especially for (in her words) “Male-Type-Guy-Dudes.”
“Look. Here’s the deal: you’re not fooling anyone. We know you’re not Geek Girls. (Your unsightly stubble and Adam’s apples give you away.),” DeConnick writes. “It’s okay. We understand. Being a Geek Girl is a pretty fabulous thing. We get it and love you for your aspiration. But the thing is, you’re not a Geek Girl … because you’re a guy. So quit pretending and learn to love yourself for who you are.”
“The announcement of our ElfQuest line was originally planned for a Saturday panel announcement as part of WaRP’s presence at Emerald City Comic Con, but some very enthusiastic and cyber-savvy fans sleuthed out the team-up early and shared the news, so we’re hitting the web sooner than planned,” said WeLoveFine’s Nicole Campos.
The shirts are available now both online and at WeLoveFine’s ECCC booth, #838-839. Check some of them out below. And don’t forget that a new ElfQuest story is currently running over at BoingBoing each week.
Although tickets for this year’s Comic-Con International don’t go on sale until Feb. 16, it’s likely they’ll go fast, and many fans who want to attend will have to look for other ways to get a badge.
Here’s one of those alternative opportunities: WeLoveFine is holding an X-Men & Wolverine Design Contest, with the grand prize being a trip to San Diego for this year’s. All you have to do to enter is design a T-shirt featuring the X-Men that’s good enough to impress the judges — one of whom is legendary X-Men writer Chris Claremont.
Claremont, one of comics’ “Iron Men,” knows a thing or two about the X-Men, and he worked with some of the industry’s best artists during his almost 200-issue run on Uncanny X-Men. So it’s a bit intimating, to say the least, but if you’re up for the challenge, then best of luck … we hope you survive the experience.
More details on the contest can be found below.
The “I Heart Hawkeye” shirts come in assorted colors — black, gray or white for men, and black, pink or white for women — and in sizes ranging from small to XXXL. They’re $25 for men, and $20 for women. Presumably a “You Dead Now, Bro” shirt will follow soon.
You check out the designs, and Aja’s full cover for Issue 9, below. Hawkeye #7 is on sale now.
