Not so long ago, somebody alerted me that a shirt featuring my favorite fictional character was for sale IN MY SIZE, something which never happens for me.  I’ve wanted to get V.I.N.Cent on a t-shirt since Chrimmus 1979, but the idea that such a thing would even be possible never occurred to me until the modern age of cheap printing and borderline copyright infringement.  I like to wear it on Sundays, but if I could a few other favorite characters, I could wear them all week long, leading to today’s screen-printed query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) would probably fill the other six days with Captain Marvelous, The 3-D Man, The Mimic, The Legion of Super-Heroes, Cosmic Rae and The Fat Fury, asking: What character or image from your favorite pop culture would you most want on a T-Shirt?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    Already have couple of those, Godzilla. Its also sort of geeky but not too geeky for use pretty much everywhere, especially when text is in katakana.

    One of my favorites that I already have is the “Van Gogh” exploding TARDIS painting from the end of Doctor Who series 5.

    I could do with a shirt with the New Eden PD logo (from “Kane” by Paul Grist) to go with the hat that I already have. It’s pretty close to the B.P.R.D. logo, though, so maybe I could settle for one of those.

    Is V.I.N.Cent the “Missing Link” between R2D2 and BB8?
