Double T-shirt Giveaway!

While I’ve been sick I racked up some giveaways, so let’s get these started with a fantastic t-shirt from Believe Merch and a bonus t-shirt from a reader.

Like all things Gothamburgh these days, it’s Batman themed! The Steel Knight:

Love it.

In addition to that shirt, which you can purchase online or at Kards Unlimited in Shadyside, I’ll also throw in the Jagoffs Make Me Stabby shirt that reader Angry Mongo of Mongowear designed and mailed to me, which you can’t purchase anywhere. His shop has lots of great shirts to check out.

I have two of the Jagoff shirts, so you get one! I’m hoping to get a design for it that is a little less … bloody. But I do love it!

Leave a comment to enter, one comment per valid email address. If your comment goes to spam, stab a jagoff and then don’t worry because I’ll fish them out periodically.

You have until 3 p.m. tomorrow, Thursday, August 4 to enter at which time I’ll let pick the winning comment number. The winner will receive both shirts and will be able to select the size for the Steel Knight shirt. The jagoff shirt is medium.

So you have something to say, tell me who your favorite action hero or super hero is of all time.

Mine? Easily the Greatest American Hero.

I will never forget the theme song, his hair, or the day he learned to fly.

    I’m a sucker for Superman. There’s just something about that symbol that draws me to it.

    I love Batman. The original Animated Series was by far my favorite cartoon.

    I do have to say Batman too. He’s so dark and twisted for a superhero. And he doesn’t have any stupid super powers. Just cool toys.

    @TK – you are not the only one on this site old enough to remember Hong Kong Phoey. Underdog was my hands down favorite as a kid, though.

    Though I was too a fan of the Greatest American Hero, I had a She-Ra costume so I’m going to have to go with that.

    Wonder Woman. The boots, and the stars on the tiara thing and the wrist things…the outfit! I wanted to be her so badly in 1982. The Halloween parade around the elementary school auditorium had to do.

    I can’t decide. I like them all equally. and for different reasons.
    Thanks for the trip down memory lane with the Greatest American Hero including
    My first glimpse of Michael Pare, (Eddie and the Cruisers-a movie I love)
    Mr. Hinkley (aka Hanley after Hinkley shot Reagan)
    Faye Grant (of the V miniseries fame-a fave of mine)

    and so much more…

    I had an unhealthy obsession with the Thundercats when I was a kid in the 80’s. Overall though Superman and Batman were always tops for me. My wife and I were able to snag passes to Heinz field for the filming this weekend, so now I can say I was in a Batman film. Should be fun.

    Can I just say that I like all super heroes equally? I don’t really have a favorite although I did like the Greatest American Hero. Now I can’t get the song out of my head! Believe it or not I’m walking on air, I never thought I could feel so freeeeeeeee…..

    Mine has to be Gambit (from the X-Men). Although Batman was always great, although to me Michael Keaton IS Batman!
