New T-Shirts at JHU (with Photos)!

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

Just in time for the holidays, we here at JHU just got in a shipment of a ton of great t-shirts that we know you will love. What better way to show you these killer new shirts than on our friendly JHU staff?

So keep reading to see some of these great new shirts in action!

Click here to see the full post with exclusive pics and descriptions!

Show your true colors in the face of evil! What is an unemployed S.H.I.E.L.D. agent to do? HAMMER certainly isn't an option, and Nick Fury won't return your calls since that one time you stole his eye patch and used it in your Odin Halloween costume. Well, you may as well prepare for the day that Norman Osborn finally gets his comeuppance by punching the air and rocking this sweet new SHIELD T-Shirt, available in sizes S, M, L, XL, and XXL* for only $20.

If anyone knows what it's like to be dealing with Norman Osborn on a daily basis, it's you, Spider-Man. So what better way to get away from it all than a trip to Japan? Mind you, something will probably happen there that'll require you to web up, but that's OK because Spidey is big in Japan and they made a T-shirt for just the occasion. We are calling this one Spidey Supeda because that is what the invoice says, we have sizes S, M, L, XL and XXL* because we love variety, and we are selling it for only $22 because we love you.

We all know that Japan is constantly plagued by giant mutant lizards that come out of the sea, so what better way to diffuse the situation than to wear this snazzy Godzilla T-shirt, available in M, L, and XL for only $19.95! This shirt, along with a proper cowering technique (shown above), will ensure you live long enough to get eaten by Mothra.

So, some things we know about Japan: they love Spider-Man, and they have a monster problem. But if this Dark Side tee is any indication, they also have an inclination for all things Sith. We're not sure what this shirt says, but it's got Vader and a Storm Trooper on it and only costs $22, so who cares? It's awesome. Sizes S, M, L, XL and XXL*.

If you rock your Star Wars tees old school then the Saga Continues is the shirt for you. Not only are you gaining geek points from the Star Wars crowd, but this t-shirt's faux comic cover design will turn heads amongst the comic folk as well. That's street cred in two hoods, homeslice, and for only $22! Available in S, M, L, XL and XXL*.

Who is cooler than Boba Fett? That's right, no-one. But you can be in his league with this swell Fett Head shirt for only $22 in S, M, L, and XL.

Remember that time that Boba Fett and Darth Vader had that epic lightsaber battle? Neither do I. But you can recreate it anyway with either of these swell new Star Wars shirts, each only $20! On the left we have Bounty Hunter, a stylish image of Fett, smoking gun in hand (available in S, M, L, XL, and XXL*), and on the right we have Chrome Dome, an even more stylish image of everyone's favorite Dark Lord (available in S, M, L, and XL). And, if you really want to make things interesting, we have the lightsabers, too!

Perhaps you like to wear more minimalist Star Wars garb while perusing our large selection of Star Wars action figures... Then pick up Star Wars Fade for only $20, available in S, M, L and XL. It looks great, and gets the point across elegantly, simply.

Getting back to comic tees, check out this awesome new t-shirt featuring a true-blue rendition of Secret Wars #2 for only $22, in L and XL!

Is there anyone hotter than Deadpool right now? Three ongoing books, a movie on the way, and now T-shirts! Our two lovely models are doing Wade Wilson proud by trying to kill one another with price guns while donning these awesome new Deadpool tees. On the left, we have Deadleap, a dynamic image of the Merc-With-A-Mouth leaping and shooting right at you. On the right, we have the imaginatively named Deadpool, the most dangerous man in the Marvel Universe drawing his sword, ready for action. Or possibly ready for pancakes. Either way, both shirts are a measly $21 and come in S, M, L, XL, and XXL*.

If assassination for hire is not your thing, but reading about it while looking pretty bloody cool is, then cop this sure-to-be bestseller while supplies last! Deadpool Icon is only two Alexander Hamiltons ($20) away from being yours, and comes in S, M, L, XL, and XXL*.

You can never hope to be as cool as our man Larry, but you can look the part in these two new Black Panther tees! Both are only $20 and come in S, M, L, XL, and XXL*! (For those wondering, the first Panther pic above is totally not a hoodie, Larry is just wearing the tee over his own hoodie to intimidate me.)

Gambit fans, you who have been waiting patiently for any Gambit goodness you can get your hands on, you with your tattered copies of Uncanny X-Men Annual 14, you with your kinetically charged business cards ready to throw and explodify at a moments notice! Represent your love of the cajun cool that is Remy LeBeau with this eye-popping new Gambit t-shirt for only $20! In S, M, L, XL and XXL*.

All the above shirts are available at both JHU locations RIGHT NOW. Happy shopping!


*XXL shirts are one dollar above listed price. All photos by Jeffrey O. Gustafson.

Press Release


NEW YORK, NY November 19, 2009

Irving Harris, alumnus, former staffer, and TV talent coordinator has written a book of memories and early history of the Madison Square Boys Club, which became the Madison Square Boys and Girls Club in 1984. His 240 page book, which has been in the works for a number of years has a delightful foreword by alumnus and actor, Ben Gazzara, and is filled with numerous color photos and charming anecdotes about the club. The book covers six decades, focusing particularly on the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s right up to 1999. The book is helping Madison celebrate its 125th Anniversary, which by no accident, falls on the exact day of the book launch, November 21st.

Irving Harris, at the age of 7 in the early 1930s, saved five pennies so he could join the Boy’s Club and attend the free movie night. For many years Irving has been compiling stories, anecdotes, and photos of his fond memories, which include his once in a lifetime experiences ranging from Herbert Hoover’s ribbon cutting ceremony at the opening of Madison’s brand new 5 story building on East 29th St. to his childhood memories of marching in the Raggamuffin Parade. He also tells of his early involvement with Club member celebrities such as Ben Gazzarra and Patty Duke, plus a host of others that all entered through Madison’s doors. There is even a classic photo of the founding Executive Director Albert B. Hines milking a cow on the sidewalk of the 30th Street Clubhouse.

At the close of the book is an epilogue by Joseph Patuleia, the Executive Director of Madison, who brings us up to date on happenings since 1999. Madison’s mission remains true to its roots, which was to save and enhance the lives of New York City’s kids. Today over 5,000 boys and girls are enjoying what the Club’s have to offer, just as the kids in the book did in their day.

This book is a must have for anybody who has ever been a member of a Boys & Girls Club or who has an interest in history during the 1940s through the end of the century. You will find the book sold in print at: www.madisonsquare.org or Jim Hanley’s Universe, 4 West 33rd St., New York, NY 10118

About Madison Square Boys & Girls Club

By providing proven education, recreation and guidance programs in a safe and nurturing environment that many children consider a second home, we help our young participants lead happy, healthy and productive lives. A founding member of the Boys & Girls Club of America, Madison currently serves over 5,000 youth ages six to eighteen at four clubhouses in the Bronx, Brooklyn and at Camp Madison in Kingston, New York. For more information, visit our website at www.madisonsquare.org or call 212.760.9600. Headquarters is located at 350 Fifth Ave, Suite 912, New York, NY 10118.


Guest Blog - Andy Schmidt on Transfomers Ongoing #1

This week marks the return of the Transformers in their first ongoing comic in...well, quite a while. We asked Transformers editor, Andy Schmidt why YOU should pick it up! Take it away, Andy!

Three reasons? Only three reasons to but this book! OK, how about this?

1. It's a great jumping on point for new readers with a new status quo--very accessible!

2. Fan-favorite character Ironhide gets killed, and you won't believe how.

3. Ironhide's death leads to a shocking decision for Optimus Prime--he resigns as leader of the Autobots! Great art (by TF vet, Don Figueroa) and great writing (by GI Joe: Cobra's Mike Costa) really come together in this blast-off point setting the stage for many Transformers stories to come!

Transformers #1 is on sale now at both JHU Locations!
