Yes, he’s amazing. We get it.
Prefacing Spider-Man’s Spider-name in every Spider-Man movie, comic book, and ill-conceived party favor is one recurring and self-promoting adjective: “amazing.”
And yes, he certainly is “amazing” considering he skips across walls, bench presses ice cream trucks, and senses the impending doom of people, places, animals, and vegetables.
However, our Amazing Spider-Man Swinging Men’s T-Shirt — although boasting Spider-Man’s redundantly expressed “amazing-ness” — is amazing for another, equally important reason:
It simulates the cover to The Amazing Spider-Man #301 (1988).
What’s so special about the cover to The Amazing Spider-Man#301? It’s drawn by the incomparable Todd McFarlane, a veritable master of drawing extremely flexible super-people.
Made from 65% cotton and 35% polyester, this heather-red Spider-Man t-shirt features said illustration rendered in a purposely distressed print.
Your actual copy of The Amazing Spider-Man #301? It’s graded 9.6 by the CGC. So, yes — it’s the farthest thing from “distressed.”
A marbling or “heather” effect is created by the blending of 2 or more materials — in this case, the blending of red and white threading.
