Threadless Comic Inspired T-Shirts

By Sarah Spoto, Contributing Writer

Threadless has always been a go-to for artistic, one-of-a-kind tees, and now they offer a pretty solid selection of comic tees. And this are no normal comic tees—each shirt depicts an issue in a series.

My favorite? Monkey Around, Issue 2, Vol. 4 by Colleen Coover

Manga Style Fashion Guide

By Sarah Spoto, Contributing Writer

I’m not going to tell you how to dress “bohemian” or “feminine” or how to get that perfect outfit for Valentine’s Day. You have fashion magazines for that, and this is a comic book blog—a comic book blog for women, which means I’ve put together a guide to reinvent your wardrobe with comic genre-inspired pieces. And since I am a big fan of Japanese fashion, I’ve chosen manga as the first genre.

In case you don’t know, manga is the Japanese word for comics but has come to mean (for us English-speakers) a comic produced in Japan. Manga’s art has a unique style, just like Japanese fashion. In terms of manga fashion, a school uniform is probably the most common outfit you’ll see any character wearing.  The second most common outfit is sailor. My picks are collected from the always-trendy selections of Akira and Asos.

What genre would you like to see next? Noir? Horror? Superhero?
