    It is a legit Superman tee.
    The neck label says Krypton Clothing Company
    with a yellow circle and the word "Krypton" running diagonally across it
    with a silouhette of Superman above that.
    I'd scan it, but I can't get to my scanner at the moment - its got Halloween
    stuff on top of it. Another time.
    The care label says ©Disney. Go figure.
    The graphic captures a moment that actually occured in a Superman comic that
    was out at the time.
    Never really figured out who the artist was. We think
    it could have been John Byrne.

    Yes, please scan it when you have a moment, I think it's utterly marvelous.....ummmm Definitely Cat. ......Did I say I want it by the way?


    I googled Krypton Clothing Company and came up dry. Well, not entirely, but not what I was after.

    You've got to remember, though, that Lichtenstein enlarged actual
    comic panels for his work. His hand painting of the four color process
    printing was one of the things that made him so amazing.
    I've got a Lichtenstein "baseball card".
    I'll scan that, too, if I can find it.

    Here's the original panel the tee was taken from.
    Penciller: Not who I thought it was.
    Inker: Not who I thought it was.

    That was actually what I was getting at in my earlier post.
    -the fact that Lichtenstein had taken his inspiration from the comic book, and turned it into 'art' and your T-shirt was effectively taking that and putting it back into the comic book side again.
    And you know he didn't steal his images directly, he took the style, and inspiration, from comics and adverts (eg. the girl with the ball image) but he never 'copied'. -I'm not commenting idlely; I studied Lichtenstein for both GCSE, and A level art. (Even did a 6x4 ft copy of 'WRUS' for a drama teacher friend of mine, but that's another story....)

    Where did the original panel come from? Obviously a comic, but do you recall which ed.?

    Stunning stuff!

    I'm working on figuring that out. The credits I had givien earlier were actually
    for a more recent treatment of the same scene.
    I actually have the issue somewhere, but it's deeply buried.

    sounds like some comic-book-collection raiding is in order

    Time to pay Beverly a visit then, I think.....or at least some self-councelling, because one should not loose such a charming feature of oneself!
    a beautiful smile makes a person look 10 times more attractive, I have recently experienced proof of that yet again

    OhMyGodNoooo Guest

    Why DaveJ...

    ....you ever worn thick knee-high socks, a heavy woolen skirt, and a shirt, jacket & waistcoat in 40 degree C heat?

    Not too comforable, I would imagine

    If you really want to see me in a kilt (and if you do, please dont admit this publically), I'll post one tonight.....

    hee hee.

    Hehehe, I remember that picture from last year, OhMyGodNoooo. Mine is a wedding picture too, hehehe!

    Oh, can I admit in public wanting to see you in a kilt?

    I think you deserve a goody bag for wearing a suit in said heat, OMGN......

    OhMyGodNoooo Guest

    Ok - you asked for it!

    Couldnt find a good one unfortunately - this is a smal snippet of a bigger photo. Excuse the 'camp' stance, but I was caught mid skip carrying balloons....OK, I was a bit tipsy.....



    And DaveJ - that suit was a nice light one...no pants for extra comfort! I'll take the goody bag all the same
