I would purchase a shirt from you, not so sure about an monochromatic Skittles, though. Perhaps a hero splash or even a full cast t-shirt would be worth it. Either way, your comic is great! Do delve in merchandising!
I think something along the lines of your page header would be a sweet shirt.
I love love love the comic. I don't like text on my tees anymore. I have a bunch of webcomics tees, but the ones without text are more versatile (can be worn in a wider range of settings). 85 percent of the comics I love have fantastic artwork, like DCIGTH, so that's what I want to celebrate: Cool drawings
I love the webcomic, and skittles is by far my favourite character, but I feel that this really doesn't give an impression of the character.
(also i hate anything that is orange and not edible)
That said, despite my hatred of orange I would buy this shirt if skittles were doing something besides standing there, like being his adorable self. (So Refrigerator, we meet again)
Eah, I think y'all can come up with a better shirt that that.
I totally checked the store a while back and was wishing there was a skittles tee shirt! Love the orange and the design. I rarely buy merch because I'm always poor/stingy... So I am all over monochrome schemes! They are cheaper and look just as cool.
Especially if it was in a girl's style, I'd be all over it!
I really like the idea of the shirt, and would happily buy it and wear it if it was in a flattering (e.g. babydoll or other) cut for girls.
In terms of the design, I am okay with it, but not totally in love. Could you consider something that showed Skittles more in motion/doing cute things? I also like the color scheme of regular Skittles better than monochrome.
Thanks again for the comic!
Oh, and one more thing--I LOVE the color. Funky colors rule over boring ones.
BTW, I loved that sort of "hipster Ganesh" character from awhile back... I know he's not a main character, but I think a lot of folks would buy merch with him on it because he's such an arresting character and his trope/parody is accessible even to people who don't know the comic (so, potentially good advertising: "Hey, where'd you get that cool shirt?" etc.). Just a thought!
The shirt's ok, but I'm not really into the text. I'd like to buy something to support your art, but since I have so many webcomics shirts they need to be something I REALLY like now before I buy 'em--I already have tons I never wear. Don't know if you have this capability, but if you could do a design on a jersey skirt or another clothing article I'd DEFINITELY buy it. A while back xkcd did a skirt design for the ladies and it was awesome. I wear it way more than many of my webcomics tees.
Also, historians represent! (I'm a historian too... though I study the modern period.)
I've loved your comic and wanted to buy a t-shirt that was emblematic of its style. It's actually a little frustrating when one of your favorite comics doesn't have any merch that captures what you like about the comic.
This shirt does the job well I think. I'll definitely buy one if you put it on sale.
I'm clearly not the demographic (having possibly entered a no-shirts-w/-stuff-on-them phase of life—weird but true), but: orange seems great, rendering of Skittles/background seems great, but the word awesome, particularly out of context, feels (to me) really played out—not nearly as funny/idiosyncratic as what you've got going on in the strip.
I'd probably buy it, because I love y'all. BUT I def. agree with Bailey, the American or Alternative Apparel shirts are wayyy more flattering and female friendly. And if it meant paying $25 instead of $20 I'd be down.
I like this shirt! Would also accept almost anything with Skittles looking adorable.
I don't know what kind of shirts you use right now, but I think it's definitely worth it to get soft shirts like American or Alternative Apparel. I know they're more expensive, but they are soooo nice.
I like the design, but I'd rather buy a shirt that is more accessible to people that don't know the comic – this design is a little too much of an inside joke.
Coloring skittles in all the way with all of his colors? He looks much more like some sort of afro-d lion without the red mane + tail and yellow eyes.
