SDCC 2017: Top 5 nerdy t-shirts

The top five nerdy t-shirts from SDCC 2017.

We all have a drawer of nerdy T-shirts but who doesn’t have room for one more? As I traversed the exhibition hall of Comic-Con International: San Diego, I saw a lot of shirts. Here are my top five!

These are my own titles for the shirts and not the official design names.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

#1: Spider-Man (City Scape Mask)

SDCC 2017: Top 5 nerdy t-shirts

This is one cool tee. I like the use of the buildings to outline the contours of Spider-Man’s face and to add depth to the image. The webbing is frayed, not stylized, giving the appearance of an actual web. The small shadowed Spidey is a nice touch swinging through the city.

#2: Vampires Don’t Do Dishes

SDCC 2017: Top 5 nerdy t-shirts

I was drawn to this one for a few reasons. It pairs a quote from What We Do in the Shadows starring Jemaine Clement with a sort of buck toothed, vampire. It’s fun, creepy and artistic. The Benday dots on the sides are a nice touch.

#3: The Adventures of Ripley & Jonesy

SDCC 2017: Top 5 nerdy t-shirts

Remember Jonesy? He was Ripley’s orange cat in the 1979 Alien film. Well it appears he has nine lives and has teamed up with Ripley for some more badass adventures. The green and white design creates a striking contrast against the black shirt. You are drawn to their piercing eyes and flame thrower.

#4: Harley Quinn

SDCC 2017: Top 5 nerdy t-shirts

I thought this was a really cool take on a Haley Quinn shirt. It is a great play on Harley’s tattoos using lettering to create her limbs. The negative space gives her a tattooed appearance.

#5: Puglie Pug – Junk Food Foolishness

SDCC 2017: Top 5 nerdy t-shirts
I wish I could have captured a better shot of this shirt. It’s just plain ridiculous and that is why I love it. The pug taco, burrito and soda cup just make me laugh. This cute pug compilation made me smile after a long day on the con floor.
