Did you know if you had a cube containing all the elements in the last row of the periodic table (the transuranic elements), it would rapidly decay in seconds to produce a nuclear scale explosion? That’s without you doing anything because these elements are so unstable, they basically just want to explode all the time. You’d get yourself a nice sized atomic blow up that heats everything nearby into super hot plasma with terrible amounts of radioactive fallout. It’s pretty extreme. So, what better to personify the ‘Destroy’ in Destroy the Comics than a giant explosion with our name on it? This tender Triblend T-shirt features a real manly explosion!
This explosion kicks up a ton of dust from all the blast force, which is pretty consistent with a real life explosion–a moment of super-heated sound and fury then a giant smoky dustfront expanding outwards. Lucky you, you still see the violent flames and flash coming out of the smoke, suggesting an early part of the explosion. The forms are somewhat simplified, but still done in an overall realistic style. The thrust of the artwork is a faithful rendition of an explosion, yet with pronounced outlines and single tone shading contributing a more cartoon-like, larger-than-life feel. Note the contrast between the irregular, organic, undulating curves of the smoke and the sharp, uniform geometry of the explosive flashes. The Destroy the Comics logo lettering resides solidly in the bottom center of the explosion, superimposed in pure white with black stroke outlines like an action movie title. Because the colors are somewhat subdued with a majority of black and gray tones in the dust cloud, the soft yellow pricks of light appear more brilliant in comparison.
If you want to get explosive with Destroy the Comics, this shirt is for you. Grab it for your next in-your-face manly outing to the shooting range, blowing things up for science session, or just to the next Comic-Con (you know how comics burst with awesomeness). Get yo nerd street cred, son.
The print is centered in the chest area and about 14 inches x 10 inches.

How to Care for Your Sweet ShirtMachine wash cold inside out to protect the print, no bleach. Pretreatment may remain on your made-to-order shirt which will add a harder, rougher texture (it's to help the print look good), the first wash will remove it and make everything nice and soft. Tumble dry low. Iron low, but avoid print.
