WANT! – 02.02.2011

Ode to a T-Shirt: A Haiku
Oh comfy t-shirt!
How I love your pop culture
And geek ref'rences!


So now that Blackest Night is all… blackest-night-y, Lantern Corps are popping up all over the place. The latest? Traffic Lantern Corps!

In brightest day, in blackest night,
No speedsters shall run red lights!
Let those who think they can sneek through a yellow
Beware my court summons, Traffic Lantern’s might!

New Lantern Corps means new Lantern Corps t-shirt! This design subtly incorporates the Red, Yellow, and Green Lantern Corps logos into a traffic light pattern.

BustedTees, $20



I know the "I heart something" shirt crazy has over-stayed its welcome. But every once in a while a really clever one slips through the cracks – like the Planet Lunch shirt from the 8-bit geniuses at Diesel Sweeties. Nothing quite says "Man, do I love devouring whole worlds!" quite like I [Galactus] Planets.

Diesel Sweeties, $16.99-$17.99



Odds are you're not going to find yourself in a situation that requires an arc reactor to keep shrapnel from working its way into your heart or power your awesome repulsor-technolgy mecha-suit. Which is good, because this shirt only looks like you have an arc reactor wedged into your chest. Plus, it glows in the dark! Automatic +5 awesome.

Think Geek, $17.99-$18.99


Ali Colluccio has waaaay too many snarky t-shirts for someone her age.


  1. I really like that Galactus shirt.  I’m craving some Jupiter right now.

  2. Galactus shirt is a yes!

  3. There is no such thing as too many snarky t-shirts.

  4. “snarky”?

  5. Paul Montgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

    @k5blazer  Sarcastic. 

  6. I have never in real life seen a woman that attractive wearing a Green Lantern-related shirt. And above is not even the best pic from the site!

    But I must admit, I’m a sucker for glow-in-the-dark t-shirts…

  7. I have the Galactus shirt. 

  8. @PaulMontgomery – Thanks for clearing that up, I keep seeing the phrase bandied about but never had a definite explaination of definition. My age must be showing….

  9. I have the Galactus shirt as well. rstevens is the pixelated genius behind Diesel Sweeties.

  10. Chicks pretty cute
