My intention is not to make this a "Tell Zack what to make" thread. He can produce whatever he wants.
This is a "look into our minds to see what kinds of things we're interested in" thread, so he can better judge what ideas might be worth looking into, and what he probably shouldn't invest much in at all.
Like when Zack asked first asked about poster. The crowd went wild!
"I'd like to see something more abstract."
"I think the chapter covers would make an awesome poster!"
"I like the posters that are around the school."
etc.

That's good. Smile
Let's just try to put it one place, instead of spread across the comments, though.

Some existing ideas (that I remember) people were interested in:
- ClothingTM clothing
- insolent children
- prints/posters
- Starchman plush (I don't know if ppl said it, but I'm saying it!!)

Maybe we can run some polls later on too.

Posters are mainly what I want.

Since the kids change clothes consistently, and we're still pretty early in this story I'm not sure I'd want any of the clothes they're just wearing for a chapter or so.

I would legit wear a Kingpin 3/4-sleeve and an Inso lent Chil dren zip-up hoodie. All the time. At the same time.

Although Clever brings up a good point, I'd probably wear whatever they wear in subsequent chapters as well. Why are kids half my age so much cooler than I am

Y'know what would never get old, though? Starchman Star keychains. Bam.

Lol.

Cleverdan: No, that's a good point. Some of them have switched up outfit pieces in a single day. and I personally don't like to buy merch that I think will seem dated/get left behind in the story (even posters).
But, in defense of clothing, I'm drawn to certain shirts and such more in a "Haha, that's a sweet shirt, I would totally buy that at a store" sort of way, not necessarily (although it could be) because of its connection to Paranatural.
The same with in-comic posters. I'd consider hanging up a football appreciation club, or hang in there beowulf print up somewhere, even considering its loose nonexistent relevance to the plot.
As "Paranatural Brand" merch, maybe not, but I wouldn't mind if someone did a run of certain shirts and in-comic posters, cause they're fun ideas.

Ars Nova: I totally would too.

Poster-wise, I think "International Scale of Creepy" would be a great one... but maybe later in the story, cause I don't think PJs done being creepy.

An insolent children hoodie might be cool. You know what would be guaranteed to be cool? An insolent children album/track. As for posters, maybe some club-themed ones? The activity club doing activities, obviously, but also the journalism club and the football appreciation club and the "johnny and his friends like to bribe the teachers for a place on the official school clubs roster" club would all probably be pretty rad.

This, so much this. I've said it in the comments and I'll say it again: I love the fact that you split "Insolent" and "Children" in the middle! XD

In any case, come on guys, no love for Ollie's wicked blue square shirt?!

I'd definitely drop a wad of cash for an insolent children hoodie.

To expound on the much-traversed topic: Yes, the kids are probably going to have many more outfits, because Zack is a good artist and good artists remember to change their cast's clothes. But I'm sure as time passes certain outfits will come to be regarded as classics, and may even make repeat appearances. Any rate, look at Homestuck: Those kids changed outfits, what, six times in a single day? And people still wear the old stuff with pride. It won't happen right away, but that doesn't mean it can't happen.

That said, more ideas, more ideas. Let's see... Oh, here you go. How about a set of spectral energy stickers? They would all be the same sort of symbol, something simple, like a sort of teardrop/fireball shape with a spiral in the middle? But they'd come in all different colors. Ooh... Actually, that'd be a good theme for a set of pins, too. How rad would that be.

Ok... Racking my brain here... Aha, how about some Activity Club polos? Maybe they could have some kind of invisible ink-esque solution that adds "Paranatural" to it in black light, or something like that. That'd be awesome. Granted I am not even sure if or how this can be done. I am bad at science. I'm just the idea guy.

Since apparently paranaturals already getting into the bedding material, what about sheets covered with various spirits? Or maybe PJ's jammies?

As much as I fear us being mistaken for crummy M.J. impersonators, I'm for it.

That's why we'll only wear the left one!

...unless James is to make an appearance in the merchandising front as well?

I liked a T-shirt that says "My Face rates a 9 on the International Scale of Creepy"

<--- I want this on a t-shirt. Even if it's just the line, although the whole image is pretty awesome. Y'know, that's kinda why I picked it as an avatar in the first place XD

Spectral energy/symbol keychains is certainly a good idea.

I always like my really nerdy stuff to be subtle/understated, but good enough so that any fellow fan could recognize it.

given the popularity of the insolent children hoodie and the clothing-brand shirt, they'd probably be good for marketing even though the kids'll change outfits. isaac's firefly hoodie and isabel's bones t-shirt are pretty cool too. heck, a lotta the clothing is.

also, fan of plushies as i am, id love a good doctopi plush to have around. or a doctopi beanie-with-dangly-things.

I like to keep it simple: A bound copy of the first few chapters of the comic, once we reach a point far enough in where there'd be enough content for such a thing to be viable.

Also I want a pool noodle shaped like Magnetsnake.

Oooo. I was thinking of doctopi plushies, but I hadn't thought of beanies. That almost makes more sense.

I might also be interested in some chibi/plush versions of the cast's spirits like 'Scrapdragon' in ch3pg46

Oh of course. I think we're just assuming that a book is inevitable, so we're thinking of other ideas Very Happy
But speaking of books... it would have to contain the Supernormal pages as well, IMO. Maybe between chapters? or at the very end?

Would people prefer the book to be hardcover or softcover? I'm not really sure myself.

Here to cast my vote behind an insolent children hoodie, and also the Starchman Star keychain~

I think a Starchman Star Sticker Set would be awesome too! Partly for the alliteration, and partly so I could stick 'em all over everything >:3
