My chest of wonders!” Well, if that doesn’t float your boat you could just wear the t-shirts. Comic book t-shirts have become one of the most popular fashion accessories in the past couple of years, with superheroes and other comics characters showing up on garments at an ever increasing rate.

Hell, you can get Avengers underwear and Hulk sneakers now. The range of comic book t-shirts currently available is staggering, and pretty much any character from any publisher can be found on a shirt.

Granted, about 90 percent of comic book t-shirts will feature characters from DC and Marvel, but if you have a look around you can find most of your favourite characters from o41xgry wDxL.

Taking a look in my own wardrobe for example, there’s three Judge Dredd t-shirts, a Spider-Man shirt, an X-men shirt, a Marvel villains shirt, a ‘Support Indie Publishers’ shirt, a Midtown Comics shirt my old housemate brought me from New York and a bunch of anime and movie t-shirts that are also great for suiting every mood.

That’s a good point actually- you can stick a comic book t-shirt on to suit every mood. Feeling angry and full of rage? Wear a Wolverine shirt. Feeling sneaky and mysterious?

Geek T-shirts aren’t just a fashion statement, they’re a way of life

geek textshirt Geek T shirts arent just a fashion statement, theyre a way of lifeThere’s nothing wrong with getting your geek on once in a while, or every day for some of us. The number of geeky t-shirts currently lining my closet is growing at a worrying rate. Where once there were sensible colours and plain designs mixed with the odd band t-shirt, now there are anime shirts, comic shirts, movie shirts and all manner of other geek culture apparel.

There is something very satisfying about seeing somebody else wearing a shirt proclaiming ‘ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US’, as I did recently while out shopping. You know the other person understands the need to geek out.

It’s like some secret Masonic handshake. A knowing nod is shared between wearers, their chests proclaiming ’42′ and ‘The Cake is a Lie’, and ‘Han Shot First’ and so on. It feels like your own exclusive little club, but in reality there are millions of us doing the same thing. That doesn’t make it any less awesome, though. Wear your geek credentials with pride!

You can wear your favourite anime t-shirts or movie quote shirts without making a huge statement, but it gives the rest of us a nice little thrill when we see our own kind out and about. It is a welcome reminder that we ain’t alone in our enthusiasm for these things.

The most well known outlet for geek t-shirts is undoubtedly ThinkGeek, where a bunch of mine are from (namely the ‘Geek’, ‘Practice Safe Hex’ and ‘All Your Base Are Belong To Us’ shirts so far). That place is a veritable treasure trove of pop culture and tech related apparel and tons of other stuff. They seem very fond of caffeine, so I like ‘em even more.

There are plenty of other places to find your essential shirts, and if you know where to look, you’ll find something to fit every fandom. Gamers, geeks and all the rest of us have been held down too long, and now we have our own fashion to drape across our glorious frames. You know something? We look damn good, too.
