Animal Man: Evolve Or Die T-Shirt Coming

Soon you will be able to express your love for Buddy Baker.

Since the launch of the "New 52," we've seen Animal Man back with a vengeance. Courtesy of writer Jeff Lemire, Animal Man is facing a whole new level of danger, one that is hitting close to home as well. For as long as Animal Man has been around (his debut was in 1965), the idea of Buddy Baker appearing on a t-shirt didn't seem too likely.

Today, DC has revealed a new Animal Man t-shirt will actually be available through Graphitti Designs later this month (online and at your local comic shop).

The image features art by Travel Foreman based on the cover to ANIMAL MAN #1 and can be seen in issue #7, on sale March 7. The issue will feature the first part of "Animal Vs. Man." Check out these preview pages (and the t-shirt in the comic) with art by Steve Pugh.

Layla Miller is right! That kid needs to evolve beyond the mullet.

I like that shirt. It also nice to see some more Steve Pugh art, the last thing I read from him has Hotwire. Speaking of which that woman with short hair resembles Alice

Hooray Buddy finally has a shirt back on.

I feel like the version in the comic is better than the actual shirt. Like the print on the actual shirt got cut off or something.

My shirt will evolve into being pitchfork proof and prove the theory of evolution in front of their eyes, yes the natural progression from cotton to Kevlar, all praise the power of Darwin :p

I want this very badly. I didn't even care about Animal Man until the New 52 and now he is one of my favorite characters.

As soon as I saw this, I knew I have to have it! 
 
There is also another T-shirt design, featuring the cover art from Animal Man #4. :)

You think I would wear that shirt in a church without bringing my lucky helmet, my brain has evolved past such nonsense through experience, trust me crosses hurt

Incredibly beautiful artwork in the panels. That T-shirt looks wicked.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Quite the message for a shirt! I love it.

Posted by CitizenJP

WANT! Animal Man is...the man...!

Posted by TheOptimist

Way too cool. Can't wait to get it. Who knew I'd be psyched for a shirt?

Now can we get one for Swamp Thing as well?

Posted by Video_Martian

I bet Icarusflies would LOVE this ;)

Posted by ManiacMan

If I get that shirt I am so going to see If I get kicked out of school for wearing it there.

Posted by They Killed Cap!

Can somebody explain to me the love for this charecter?

Posted by mikeclark1982

@ManiacMan: so get it and wear it with pride! PRIDE!

Posted by ApatheticAvenger

Yeah, I'll be wearing this.

Posted by Superguy0009e

@BlackArmor: westboros.....they will probably stone you though

Posted by LordRequiem

I am the only one that thinks Spider-man: The Other when I read "evolve or die"? Possibly one of my favourite ever stories.

Definitely gonna pick one up!

Edited by jaredbright

Oh Thanos! NO! (I made that expression up)

That was used on the Spider-man:The OTher story... a 'story' that made no sense. They still haven't explained it, I'm sure.

I heard the Animal Man books are great. I don't know about this 'evolution' idea in fiction. Everyone uses it so loosely. A person changes, therefore it's evolution? Not by definition. Spider-man dies, comes back to life with a new power, but essentially the same person. Evolution? No.

Ofcourse, any church-goer could tell you that.

That is so awesome! I hope i can get it once it goes up for sale :D

Posted by kennybaese

I kind of wish the actual shirt looked a little more like the shirt in the issue, the actual thing looks a little busy... But I'll probably still pick one up.

Yes because as we all know you can't be a man of god and science.
