Threadless Releases ‘Comics-On Tees’ Collection
A wise man once said that comic readers and clever t-shirts go together like Galactus and an all-you-can eat planet buffet — they’re simply made for each other. That being the case, it should come as no surprise that Threadless — purveyor of some of the coolest/funniest geek wear available today — are celebrating San Diego Comic-Con by enlisting the artistic talents of Jill Thompson, Cliff Chiang, Tony Moore and Art Baltazar for their all-new “Comics-On Tees” collection.
The designs — which will be on display at a special after party hosted by Threadless tonight in San Diego — all follow a storyline written by Thompson, and can either be bought separately for $20 a pop, or as a set for $70. The t-shirt makers also hint that more comic-inspired shirts by some of the industry’s most groundbreaking artists are on the way, but we’ll just have to sit patiently and wait to see what those will be.
Threadless’ San Diego festivities serve as the kick-off to their Threadless Everywhere Tour, a cross-country tour celebrating their 10 Year Anniversary, making stops at various art parties and craft fairs. More info can be found on their website, but they advise interested parties to follow them on Twitter (@Threadless) as events and updates will be added regularly.
