Bear Reads Comics T-Shirts Now Available

Everyone seemed to really take to our This Bear Reads Comics image posted earlier today, and many asked for a T-Shirt or other product featuring the cute cuddly polar bear that they could snatch up and buy. Your wish is granted.  We changed the design slightly to ensure we don’t get sued by a certain big comic book company. The Major Spoilers Merch Store now features the T-Shirt design for men, women, and children.  And unlike the F’Continuity! shirt, you can change the color of these to your liking. Here’s the breakdown of the Men’s Tee Product Details Men’s Heavyweight…

Scott Pilgrim vs. The Merch

With a bazillion people reading the Scott Pilgrim series, and the movie in production, it’s a pretty sure bet that merch will fly off the shelves when the movie hits.  That is if Universal Studios Consumer Products Group can find someone to produce the clothing, accessories, action figures, novelties and whatnot. When those figures do become available, I’m hoping they are the Bryan Lee O’Malley designs and not Michale Cera version. via Global License

Marvel Teams with Walgreens

I’m trying to keep this post as clean as possible, so I’m heavily editing my thoughts on the company that wants to slap its name and intellectual properties over anything and everything for a buck.  On the plus side if you like anything and everything Marvel, you’ll be happy to know that in the spring of 2010, you’ll be able to pick up all sorts of stuff at your local Walgreens. Characters from Spider-Man Classic, Iron Man Classic, Hulk Classic, Marvel Comics Retro, Marvel Heroes, the Iron Man movie and the Hulk movie properties will grace toys, automotive accessories, pet…

Behold! The Coming of Geek-Lactus

Maybe it is the paranoia finally getting to me, but it seems the publishers are starting to figure out this whole web promotion thing, and instead of relying on the indie web sites (like this one), the comic publishers are starting to do their own thing.  DC launched its own blog site releasing DC news befor anyone else, and now Marvel is getting into the action figure arena with Geek-lactus. What is Geek-lactus?  It’s a monthly video series hosted by Jasse Falcon, where he talks all about new Marvel merchandise.  On the plus side, Marvel is making these videos embeddable,…

F’Continuity Shirt Caught in the Wild

Major Spoilers fan Josh P. was the first member of the Major Spoilers Legion to pick up the F’Continuity t-shirt we are selling in the store, and he sent along a picture to prove that he received it. That shirt sure does look good!  And check out that shelf porn going on in the background.  I sense a Major Spoilers contest forming right now… Thanks so much for being a fan of Major Spoilers, Josh!  There’s something special being put in the mail just for you. Want to be part of the Major Spoilers experience, and want your own F’Continuity…

Scare Neighbors, Earn Geek-Cred with Joker Ski Mask

This ski mask has to be one of the most disturbing bits of clothing I’ve seen, and it can be yours for the low low price of $16.99.  While this certainly looks creepy, criminals are going to have a field day with this kind of ski mask as it makes it even harder to identify the perp. via Amazon

WTF? Watchmen Pillowcases

I know George Lucas made a killing in the 70’s when he managed to secure the merchandising rights for Star Wars properties, that lead to those wonderful Star Wars bedsheets I used to have (sleeping with Princess Leia took on a whole new meaning), but check out the crazy stuff currently being hocked on eBay in an attempt to cash in on the upcoming movie. You are bidding on a pair of standard size (18 x 28 inches) pillowcase. 100% Cotton with 200 thread count! They are very soft and comfortable since we use the highest quality of garment in…

Umbrella Academy Goes 3D This Spring

Right on the heels of the first issue of Way/Bá’s highly anticipated follow-up series,…
