The Amazing Spider-Man Comic #122 T-Shirt

After the Green Goblin threw Gwen Stacy off of the George Washington Bridge back in The Amazing Spider-Man #121, our hero’s life would never be the same again — especially since his attempt to save her via his webbing actually is what killed her, but let’s not split hairs. The love of his young life was dead, and Spidey wanted revenge. In the subsequent issue, Spidey and the Goblin faced off in a climactic battle that has not been matched since. The excitement of this storyline is captured in this T-shirt, recreating John Romita Jr.’s iconic cover for that issue. Available in men’s sizes Adult S through 4X.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Tote Bag

Douglas Adams reportedly hated the “Cosmic Cutie” — the green, large-tongued blob who appeared on the covers of every Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy book released in North America. We’re going to have to respectfully disagree with him on this one, as we’ve been in love with the Cutie since we first laid eyes on his toothy grin. This 100% cotton canvas bag from Out of Print clothing includes artist Peter Cross’ original Hitchhiker’s art and is full of as much weird whimsy as the book’s themselves. Bonus points go to this one because each purchase made at Out of Print helps fund literacy programs and book donations to communities in need. And that would definitely bring a smile to the late author’s face.
