Great comic book cover feel (if they were bold enough to print on all red) and darn if he doesn't look like he's got a fighting chance. Yep. Liking it. A lot.

I'm loving the Doom reference. :3

For those who are confused, it's a mashup of the "snowball's chance" cliché and the original box art for the PC game Doom:

Outstanding take on an adage/proverb. Seriously, one of the best ever.

Very nice, but would have liked it more without the text.

+1. Better to 'discover' it on your own. Regardless, great design.

Wait so does the snowball replace the BFG 9000 or does it add another weapon above it?

Reminds me of the final scene in The One.

The sad thing is, after finally fighting his way through hell, we will discover he was doing it the whole time for his pet bunny... Daisy...

Kind of lessens the impact...

;)

Cool shirt!

A snowball in hell is a test to see what you do when faced with certain defeat. It's a snow-win scenario. A kind of Koba-icy Maru, if you will.

It's a very cool shirt. It works as a neat reference but also as its own thing.

I wish shirt.woot would let you choose what color shirt you wanted. I would have preferred this design on a black shirt. It is just too red for my taste. I wonder how logistically possible that would be?

I gotta say, as someone who loved Doom, this shirt is a must-buy.

I was about to post the same thing and saw yours. The Doom reference will draw some in, but the text will lose some sales. Probably a wash. Nice artwork.

Good stuff. Ah the good ol' Doom days.

Winter, I played Doom when living in Barbados. Made me smile to see that connection.

Makes me want to load up a shareware copy from a floppy disk and run through the first episode all over again.

I love the reference - even down to the font style... but having cliche text explicitly on the shirt is too much for me. Pass.

Holy paycheck it's a DOOM reference. Finally a video game ref for me. :P

Now where's my Ultima Online parody shirt Woot?

The greatest game ever created, imho. I still play it, and multi-player is still as fun as it was in the DWANGO days (if you can find someone to play). Some great source ports out there for playing on modern computers.

I guess I am one of the Lucky 22.

I Love my bright red shirt

This is the first of the new shirts I have bought and I have to say I like them and while they still run a little small I really like it and can actually wear it.

Really like this one but you can barely see the detail on the shirt with the dark red on red. Hrm, maybe I'll pick it up anyway.
