From Batman's cowl to The Mandalorian's helmet, sci-fi and fantasy made masks cool long before they became a public safety necessity.
So on your next necessary quarantine outing to the grocery store, pharmacy, or other essential service, embrace this opportunity to ditch your isolation uniform of sweatpants and pajamas and embrace your nerdiness with a fun mask.
From Marvel Comics to The X-Files, Ghostbusters to Doctor Who, these geeky face masks show everyone who you are — from six feet away, of course.

TeePublic masks come with the option of one or two layers of protection (we recommend two, although their double-layer masks have a more limited color palette).
