Tim Gunn: Superhero

>> Thursday, May 21, 2009

Via Blogging Project Runway comes this rather odd crossover announcement: Project Runway mentor Tim Gunn in the pages of a Marvel Comic! The New York Times has the scoop, true-believers:

On Aug. 26, Marvel will release the first issue of “Models Inc.,” a sartorially minded mini-series that unites some of its fashion-friendly supporting characters and pushes them into new starring roles.

The runway divas include Millicent Collins (a k a Millie the Model), Patsy Walker, also known as the superheroine Hellcat, and Mary Jane, the model-turned actress who is the sometimes wife of Peter Parker, the Amazing Spider-Man....

But what would the angels be without someone to guide them? Enter Tim Gunn of “Project Runway.” In the debut issue’s second story, Mr. Gunn becomes an action figure — jumping into Iron Man’s suit of armor to save a fashion exhibition from evildoers.
Er, okay. I have to tell you, I thought I was one of the few people who both read comics and watched Project Runway. Marvel is apparently going to put this hypothesis to the test, figuring there are more closet comic book geek/fashionistas out there. In the words of the immortal Tim, "I'm dubious." But more power to them!

I think this is awesome - but does Tim like his outfit? I think it needs some work...
