Yes, it’s time for a contest! The good folks at Nerdyshirts have ponied up some sweet sweet apparel and if there’s one thing that I know, it’s that people who read comic books also wear tshirts.
As for the actual contest part of the contest: below you will find a list of the books that I bought this week. Take one or more of those as your inspiration and either
a) Write, draw, sculpt, paint, mosaic, program or otherwise create something based on it
or if you are less creatively inclined,
b) Find a piece of writing, art, etc. that you can point to as being especially relevant in relation to it
We’ve got two shirts to give away, so one will go to an a) style submission and one to a b). In either case, entries will be judged on an entirely subjective basis by me, with another LBWer or maybe my girlfriend called in to break any subjective stalemates.
You can link entries in the comments section, email them to me (contact info in the JOHNATHAN page, linked above) or, uh, send them in the mail if you want to and can convince me to give you my address. You have until Friday, July 2 to get ‘em in, and I’ll announce the winners on Saturday July 3. I will certainly post your submissions to the site, so watch out.

I suppose that if you mostly read Marvel Comics you can do something about how I don’t ever buy any and am consequently a jerk.
