aust1n

You forgot plague doctor...

I love it!

Bramish

Great stuff, and great use of the limited colours. $5

Edword

Jdot

I'm going with the side-wrap placement, too. Too much chest designs already.

chelly

good stuff

Chipmnk

Love it. $5

ISABOA

i love this shirt

I LOVE THIS SHIRT

holds boombox over head
I LOVE THIS SHIRT!!!!!!!!!!

SEVEN-HUNDRED

I like it, and although its very clever what you've done to create the extra colours, i think this would have benefited with a more limited palette - kinda like this:

Zombies were people too! - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever

But great capture of the characters.

Mojie

:(

Still, $5.

Mojie

Dammit, it cut off my first comment. I was saying...

Why does everyone think "schizophrenic" means "split personality"? It's wrong and it's a pet peeve of mine.

Mojie

And I disagree with SEVEN-HUNDRED. It looks like a classic comic book with this color scheme, which is both appropriate and cool.

Azoetrope: I'll add the accent mark for sure, if this does get printed!

Krakaboom

Super work!

ALIADOTONY

i really like this one i must buy!

Ste7en

Great retro comics feel. The colors and halftones make perfect sense as an homage to comics those days. As a shirt, im not sure the colors work for me, but high marks anyway, as im sure other people would love to wear these colors.

vinnylo

dude u gotta put me in there

roadkill3d

yeah put vinny in there! :D

this is awesome! got the whole comic book feel in it! cinco cinco

Evil Clown is my fav! Great idea and fun execution, although i might go for one more villian on either side and making the rows not as long. And maybe one on the back near the neck? You forgot the villian who talks too damn much about his amazing plan and gets killed while chatting it up!

yeshchatte

I really love this exactly how it is... the colors like people have said, really reflect old school comic printing and a fun attitude. Plus, evil villains? Come on, who doesn't want to sport that?
:) $5!! let's all wear em and start a villain club!

huebucket

Rockslide

great idea and nice execution!

"Evil Super-Villains" is somewhat redundant. I think it would read better as "The League of Cliche Super-Villains". That said, this is an awesome submission.

phones

i'm $5in this HARD!

p.s. it's evil reptile not amphibian

p.p.s. i think you need a Russian in there

p.p.p.s. you also need a Gorilla

Thanks everyone for your sweet amount of feedback! I honestly didn't expect so much of it! As for redundancy in the title, it was meant to be humorous. As though these villains are soooo evil, that they're "evil" villains. I figured there was a toungue in cheek quality to the repetitive title... Keep that feedback coming!

staffell

It is good, but just how small are those halftones?

noneuclidean

I've never seen a more lovely hive of scum and villainy.

BTW Villains don't use accent marks...I'm pretty sure at least.

At the size they'd be at on the t-shirt, the half tone dots are screenable.

Everyone: Your comments are rockin! So far this is the most comments I've gotten on any design! :)

tireddragonfly

Brilliant. Hilarious. I want to wear it to my local comic book store and see everyone drool and turn green with envy. Ha.

Frickinawesome: aren't all these supervillains
"the villian who talks too damn much about his amazing plan and gets killed while chatting it up!" :P

Sweet evil villain suggestions! Thanks!

the more halftones, the better. 5!

mrwalrusface

crazy well done! my only beef with it is the cream shirt ( 5 )

polynothing
polynothing profile pic Artist

Perhaps it could be printed on only natural and white

Jassie

Very cool!

vbarnhart

I think the natural shirt makes it look more vintage...like yellowed, newsprint comic book page. Great!

polynothing
polynothing profile pic Artist

chiefdeputyphil: I suppose, going with the cliche, there's usually a seductress who's bad, and there are both good and evil robots, so thus the "evil robot." Maybe that's not clear enough though. Anyone else have trouble with the evil before the names? If so, I could change it...

mag391

cool, reminds me of travis

polynothing
polynothing profile pic Artist

Sweet! Can't belive the comments actually got to 100, and stayed relatively positive! Keep em comin!

noneuclidean

I don't think the "evil" wording should be changed. As you pointed out, you use "Evil" when referring to a type of character that could have a "good" counterpart. There are no good gangster puppets, but there are good clowns.

every3rdthought

can I be pedantic, and say I'd much prefer it if it was 'the league of cliched supervillains'? That'd make it a buyer...

Bisparulz

Yesss! 5$$

nikolina100

great job!! and holy comments ;)

polynothing
polynothing profile pic Artist

Podunk42:Yeah, I think I'll sub in some of the words that idem176 suggested in place of some of the "evils" since people seem to be bothered by it's over-usage. Should be an easy fix... That is, if this thing gets picked up for print!

Thanks to everyone who's voted thus far, you guys rock socks! I'm loving all the feedback, and if you can, please keep the comments rockin!

ISABOA

good question - i was hoping to get it in time for christmas

roadkill3d

yay! Congrats!

aust1n

Congrats on the print!

Edword

congrats on the print!

Mojie

Just bought mine! I'm so happy this got printed, even if I still have a beef with the schizophrenic thing. Once again, nice job! :)

Mojie

You know, opifan pointed out that the schizophrenic thing is really in keeping with the old school comic book thing and I have to agree. It really does add to the campiness factor, so I'm okay with it. :)

empiricist

I never saw this in the running, but it's so awesome! Well done and congrats!

JeffreyyS: there's no misconception of the actual meaning of schizophrenia, as the shirts title points out: the things listed on the shirt are cliches. I listed nowhere that the character listed as a schizophrenic had a multiple personality... You just recognized it with the two faced character as being the trope that's been connected with schizophrenia in pop culture... The shirt is poking fun at tropes and cliche's, not attempting to re-inforce them... Also, have a sense of humor. Since you appear to lack one, please don't buy the shirt, as it's meant to be funny.

pinkweaselgirl: you appear to have left a comment... I don't know if that was possibly a mistake, since the comment was no comment... or possibly not.

courtney pie

i'm offended by your shirt because the butch henchwoman is blonde not brunette....

igo2cairo

Man, I can't believe this design actually generated controversy. It's a really cool idea brilliantly done. Period. Congrats on a well-deserved print! I've aldready requested a reprint of men's medium because it sold-out. :(

wotto

my uncle was a gangster puppet and I am deeply offended by this shirt.

Nate the Great

I want this shirt. I must have this shirt. Oh no... I am broke. But I still love this shirt.
