WeLoveFine might as well be time-traveling in a TARDIS so they can fit the number of new lines they've been cranking out recently. The latest collection from the "for fans by fans" site compiles 14 tee designs based on the motion picture "Dr. Who & the Daleks":

The Trek license is a first for Her Universe, which initially was only Star Wars-focused, but has since branched out with licenses for Battlestar Galactica, Warehouse 13, and more.

For the past two months and change, the HBO Store has kindly been providing us with graphics and info on the products they've released each week to coincide with every episode of Game of Thrones. Now, with the season over, we'll probably have to wait a good long while to get new GoT swag (unless you've got $30K hanging around and want to buy the Iron Throne)... But we also know now which Westeros House is most popular, based on product sales.
That's right: for the past ten weeks, HBO has been tracking sales of shirts, coasters, iPod skins, and more by House, and compared them to the previous season's sales, as well. So now we know who the most popular House was, and where they went up on the rankings. So without further ado, Westeros' Next Top House is... Read More...

"Not a Snowballs Chance..." - Winner of the Shirt.Woot.com board gaming derby. Design by user lucky1988.
Board games are not exactly ripe material for t-shirt design. Aside from bad Catan "wood for sheep" puns and people who turn Twister mats into rain coats, you don't often see people sporting a love of tabletop gaming on their chest. Designing the ultimate board gamer t-shirt requires a special touch: one happily provided by the slightly twisted folk over at Shirt.Woot.com.
As part of the site's 250th Derby competition, the floodgates of board game t-shirts have been opened. An army of designers took a shot at making their best board gaming shirt, and the Woot.com community voted their favorites to the top. Only three of these shirts will make the cut, though, so check back over the next three days to see which new shirt has been put up for sale.
You can view all of the entries here, or if you prefer, skip right to the top vote-getters. Today's reveal was the #1 voted shirt, a Monty Python and the Holy Grail meets Monopoly mashup (pictured above). Other candidates for the weekend include spoofs on Trivial Pursuit, Risk, Life, Pandemic, Catan, and the D20.
Unfortunately "My Bad," a hip-hop parody of Sorry, did not make the cut.

If you like reading T-shirts as much as you like reading comics, you need to check out tees from Threadless. And if you want to help make a comic book T-shirt with Neil Gaiman, you need to check out this contest from Threadless.
The contest will end on May 4, so time is running out. Neil Gaiman has written a short script that will run front and back on a T-shirt, and the contest is to design the art for the shirt. How you design it is up to you — will it be full of word bubbles? Will you express more through drawings alone? When the contest is over, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund will pick its favorite. On top of that, 25% of the earnings from the winning T-shirt will go to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund to help them continue their good work. Read More...

T-shirts can be a great way of displaying your personality. So if you like comic books, how about wearing comics T-shirts? And if you make your own comics, how about getting them on a T-shirt? Comic Strip Tees has a solution for you.
Each day the website will show a different comic, and you have one week to purchase a shirt with that comic on it. (Does this count as a limited edition comic book?) The artists receive $2 of every purchase, and they don’t have to worry about losing any of their rights.
Comic Strip Tees has three things in mind: helping artists showcase and earn money, giving people new comics to read daily, and to let readers discover new writers and artists they like. To begin with, they’re showing (on cloth!) the work of Mike Allred, Roger Langridge, Simon Fraser, and Pat Barrett. Read More...

Remember Furbies? Of course you do. This toy hit it big in the late ‘90s, and like so many things in geek and pop culture, it’s caught the eye of WeLoveFine. Along with all its Star Wars, My Little Pony and comic book inspired merchandise, WeLoveFine has announced its foray into Furby world.
WeLoveFine describes its new T-shirts:
“ ‘Furby Metal’ is a stealth entry into our Rock Tees category, as well; hey, heavy metal lyrics are often hard to understand, right? It makes an odd bit of sense if you consider that Furby's speaking his own language anyway. ‘While You Sleep’ taps into that fine line between childhood love of your Furby... and actual concern for what he was plotting when you drifted off to dreamland. (Aaah! No, it's cool, he's watching you dream. Maybe...) Finally, two of our most popular pop-culture mash-up themes make their way into this collection with ‘Fur Roh Dah’ and ‘Tickles Are Coming’!”

WeLoveFine — the place with the “Freakin’ Awesome Tees!!!!” — is back with more cool merchandise. Remember learning about Art Deco in Art Appreciation class? Well, Art Deco is not an art style of the past: WeLoveFine now has an Art Deco category.
“The iconography of this early 20th-century art movement makes for apparel that is both visually striking and a subtle, fashionable take on geek culture apparel!” WeLoveFine said in an official press release. So how is the company mixing Art Deco with geekery? Read More...
