June Previews

While cleaning out my office today, I came across June's Previews catalog. Normally, I toss the old ones out once I'm done placing an order so for the life of me, I couldn't remember why I was keeping this one.

After thumbing through it, I suddenly remembered why I'd kept this one particular Previews...

WHITE POWER!

Probably not the wording most would use to sell a Superman t-shirt but I guess Diamond knows better than I.

I'll bookend the tee with my Red Skull statue.

(All said with tongue firmly planted in cheek.)

Hell... that's what we'd call Nazi-riffic!

I remember this one. I still picture two idiots at the printer's snickering about an expected press rush at this one.

In the end, I think it was just us bloggers who saw it.

Hey, we're just covering all the marketing angles. Filthy horrible racists have disposable income too, y'know. In fact, I smell a Captain Nazi statue in the near future, or maybe a reissue of The Golden Age with an alternate 'Hitler Wins' ending. The possibilities are endless! Who cares what color of human you want to exterminate from planet Earth so long as the color of your cash is a sweet, sweet green? Wiggle those swastika-tattooed cans this way, baby - we want your moolah!

Can they be sold as a set?

Through in a Captain Nazi statue, and I'm in!
