Update 3/1/13: The pre-order period has ended. The print order will now be made and shirts should begin shipping mid March. For those who didn't pre-order, keep an eye out, as we will have a small amount of overage in select sizes.
Our new T-shirt features Creedish death cult survivor Tender Branson, dressed to the nines in his evangelist, false prophet garb, strung up like a puppeted martyr over the image of a 747. Welcome to the wonderful and deranged world of one of Chuck Palahniuk's most celebrated novels, Survivor. The design is by Mondo artist Jay Shaw.
Here is a closer look at the shirt:
The inks on this shirt are water based, which means you won't feel like you're wearing a giant decal on your chest. The shirt color is 'New Silver,' which is almost like a soft grey. It's a unisex American Apparel 50/50 polycotton shirt. The fabric is very soft, very light and extremely comfortable.
This is a pre-order. It will run until Feb 28th. Then our design will be sent to the printer. Shirts will then begin shipping in mid March. So all in all, expect a 4-6 week wait for your shirt. We ship Priority mail.
Want A 'Survivor' Poster?
In a few weeks time, the artist Jay Shaw will be offering a poster of this design, seen in our gallery to the right or by clicking here. There will be a limit of only 100 of these posters and they will cost $20.39 (same flight number Tender takes!). So stay tuned and we will post a link on where to buy these posters once they become available. You might also try following Jay on Twitter to make sure you don't miss out!

Chris Gore has become our new best friend. You may remember that a couple weeks back he decided to review our Chuck Palahniuk documentary DVD "Postcards From The Future", during his 'DVDuesday' segment on G4's 'Attack of the Show.
After we posted about this, Chris then actually joined The Cult and left a comment on the news post. How awesome is this guy? To repay him for the plug, Mirka and I decided to send the dude a care package of ChuckPalahniuk.net goodies. And since Chris had mentioned that Survivor was his favorite Chuck Palahniuk book, we dropped one of our awesome Survivor Tshirts in with the package.
Well, if you watch the video below, where Chris reviews the new Fight Club Blu-ray DVD set, you'll see that he graciously decided to wear the shirt on live TV!
