  • First Edition!  First edition of Planet Money’s Mysterious Micro-Face #1 helmet t-shirt.  

    Micro-Face's original 1940s helmet is his signature piece.  Support Planet Money and wear your new shirt proudly. 

    This dedicated team of economics podcasters will be spending the next couple of months making a comic book about Micro-Face, and sharing every step of the process with you.  Get in on the fandom early, with this t-shirt.

    Planet Money went searching through thousands of public domain characters and fell in love with the 1940s sonic avenger: Micro-Face. He was everything a podcast could have hoped for: super-sensitive hearing, photoelectric vision, and the kicker -- a microphone strapped to his face.  Follow along with the journey here: Planet Money Buys a Superhero 

  • Allen Ulmer, original creator of Micro-Face. 1942.

    T-Shirt re-illustrated and printed by the charming Midwesterners at RAYGUN, a unionized printing and retail company that sells clothing, home goods, and time travel supplies.
