June 2013 A Marvellous & Dynamic Duo Forged Between Workwear Express & Incognito Comics

The once thought of “geeky” world of comics, is now one of the coolest industries and entertainment properties in pop-culture and film. From the recent successes of “The Dark Night”, “Avengers” and most recently “Iron-Man 3” the world is hooked, amazed and demands more from the 2 biggest comic properties, Marvel & DC.

However long before these heroes hit mainstream popularity and became household names amongst children and adults alike, an independent comics retailer has stood firm in the world of spandex & masked hero’s. Enter – Incognito Comics.

The dover based collectables & comic retailer, which started trading in 1989, has entered its 24th anniversary. To help refresh its image, the company approached Workwear Express to enquire about t-shirts to be used as staff uniforms. Workwear Express was able to fulfil & exceed the needs of the brief, leading to the commissioning of a range of printed t-shirts and a super-powered duo joining forces between Workwear Express & Incognito Comics. 

The world of comics is known for its range of crazy costumes from flamboyant to bad ass, leather to spandex. However Incognito Comics knew how to separate reality and practicality from the allure of crazy designs. Dave Finn, a representative of Incognito Comics requested fruit of the loom t-shirts featuring the company name on the front, and “STAFF” in large font on the back. This simple, but effective design will allow employee’s’ to be easily recognisable in store, whilst looking stylish and remaining comfortable.

So just how big have comics became in film? Below shows a run-down of the top 10 grossing comic-property films.
