10 Days of T-Shirts: Day 8 – Orange Lantern Avarice T-Shirt from Entertainment Earth

Everybody covets something.  You could do worse than to commit yourself to avarice, that strong feeling of desire for material gain.  After all, aren’t we all material?  Don’t we all want to touch, be touched, and possess that which we most deeply desire?  Just like the wielders of the orange light…

Achieve harmony with your devotion to avarice by wearing this Avarice T-shirt based on the Orange Lantern character from Blackest Night.

If you’re not up to speed on the big picture behind the Orange Lantern, it’s part of the Blackest Night series of comics that greatly expanded the story of the Green Lantern.  If you want a good overview, try reading the collection Blackest Night, by Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis.  From there, you can branch out into a whole universe of “Lantern” tales.

But it’s not necessary to know the story of the Orange Lantern Corps to appreciate both the subversive and assertive nature of an “Avarice” T-shirt.  After all, don’t irony and rule-breaking propel our modern cultural aesthetic?  Sometimes you want to push the envelope — in fact, sometimes you don’t even want there to be an envelope.  But you want to do it subtly, cannily, without having to wear a tiredly obvious T-shirt that says “Subvert the Dominant Paradigm.”

Secretly, that’s what you want.  Well, don’t be so secret about it anymore.

This high-quality, 100% cotton, pre-shrunk T-shirt isavailable from Entertainment Earth, the folks who bring you a whole multiverse of entertainment tie-ins.  Comics are just one piece of their pie.  You can find many other toys and collectibles — subversive, funny, and devotedly fan-oriented — at their site.

In the meantime, get the Avarice T-shirt.  Hone your desire and the means for achieving it.
