I worked from 1995 - 2001 at various comic book stores in both England and the States. During that time I had bought a lot of very cool t-shirts (SiP, the Endless, Grendel, etc.) which I wore until they were lost to ex girlfriends, the laundry gods and/or storage.

My favorite was a Shade the Changing Man one with art by Chris Bachalo. I still wear it around the house, but I'm seeing the collar starting to fall apart, and the whole thing's almost see-through at this point.

I've checked eBay, Googled the hell out of it, even returned to stores I used to manage where there's still merch on the walls from the mid-90s, but no sign of a replacement.

Help me Chit Chat. You're my only hope.

The T-shirt I've wanted for years was one that was popular at the Atlanta Olympic games. It was a picture of William Tecumseh Sherman with the line "Atlanta's Original Torch Bearer".

If you have copies of the artwork you like why don't you find a printshop that does t-shirt graphics.

Yeah, illegally printing up your own is probably your best bet. If you want to try doing it legally, you could try contacting the artist to see if he'll grant you permission.

Not going to bootleg it.

Still a couple more stores I can try, and I'm hoping someone here might come across it and remember this thread . . .

Also an outside chance of it going back into print now that the character is active again in the DCU proper - I see several of the shirts from that era are still in print (and I'm definitely going to replace my old Dream, Death, Delirium shirt).

What if I sent you a photo of me wearing the aforementioned t-shirt? You could then get that photo silk-screened on a plain white tee.
