How To Become Super
Hey fellow comic book nerds. Just in time for the 2010 Comic Con... How to become super! 12 variations of classic comic origin archetypes illustrated in a quick simple style.
simple but effective
cuuute :D :D :D
Excellent it's up for scoring.
This is Super!!!!!!
This is awesome!!!
Simple and effective
Super design! It is certainly difficult to pick a favorite! They are all so great!
cool, i'm gonna try a few of those!
Thanks for the comments so far everyone. No Drama of me stealing the idea yet! Plenty of time left though. I never really thought about not having the text timpaint. I think that it's needed honestly.
do you like Zero Punctuation his characters are drawn similarly!
haha cute idea!
hah awsome shirt bro! love it giving it a 5
That's true Luigi. Honestly, I left out Crash Landing from Space as well. If this does well I could make a sequel.
playful and very cool mate, I get a blast from tees that have a narrative to it - good work!
A Sequel will very likely be in order! Great shirt
5 $5 from me!
This rules (and is also helpful!)
Five and buy form me!
hahaha! super funny and simple! great work!!
I can't believe Threadless makes a Comic related contest like a day after I submit this!
Yeah it fits comics! I love it :]
This is the quickest submission to a loves comp I've ever seen.
LOl, I want it plz print!!!!!!$5
this is great!
I love what I am seeing :D 5$
I love this shirt man!!! $5
Very awesome design and idea man! Good luck!
Funny my shirt seemed to exploded recently. I'm not complaining at all. I'm assuming it's because I'm the only one in the comic contest atm lol.
hehehe, supra funny supra hero shirt. Might be even better without the text underneath each superhero origin.
Awesome work dude!
It's clever, and I like all the dudes, but can't help feel underwhelmed just because it's "one of those shirts with grids of pictograms". It's obviously a hit nonetheless, so well done, matie!
this works great for the contest!!!
Thanks for all the major support
Still alive and making shirts? Ugh...
Lots of cool ideas in this one! Super funny!
Thanks all. I'll pass my all time score count... thanks to the loves contest
awesome idea, it really draws me in. I like the simplicity a lot too
i want this!!! =)
Great idea. Too bad about the Loves exclusion. Wow, your voting number is amazing.
Actually it was added to the loves comics contest
My only gripe is why all the marvel representation? :)
Cant you just throw in a little DC?
I like it anyways :)
This is rad! $5 buy!
Cute. Now which way shall I use to become a superhero?
My personal plan is to find a magic ring!
Ha. Yeah I had to leave out find magic ring too! If this does amazing well I will do a sequel to it.
hahah love it!
Right on ! Hilarious and cute!
hey)))) very good)
Thanks all. Another 3+ design! My 2nd one!
Thanks for the kind words and we'll see what happens. I guess it's in position for a possible print and small shot at winning the contest. Maybe... lol
Hey FYI, the design is traveling around the net a bit. Just found it on this blog and thought you might wanna see :)
Also, you should ask them to link to your page instead of the random blogs that just pulled it from here.
Link to blog
Yeah I see that now I knew it was traveling the blogs a bit but i'll send them an email and see if they could link traffic to threadless.
I would change Lab Disaster with Lab Accident and use the origin of the Flash. I would also love some of the non-specific ones to have a more comics related image like Dr Fate/Strange for the learn magic, "Born a mutant" could be a bit more NightCrawler, and cosmic rays could have all four powers. . .
Also I think the Green Lantern origin or Quasar/Captain Marvel would be similar to "Find Mjolnir" - so maybe its "Find object of power!"
Definitely could have "be an alien" added. How about "a deal with the devil" - Ghost Rider/Blue Devil? Or "have a 'super' parent" - Invincible? Or "Gift from the gods" - Shazam/WonderWoman?
Maybe just add a new row? This is fun!
Yeah I know there were tons of options to do for this shirt but honestly I could only fit 12 on the shirt without it becoming overcrowded imo. Maybe I got other idea for the comic contest but maybe I'll make another quick one of these for fun.
this one came up on my stumbleupon too!
