Now this is the guy you want to be standing in line behind when waiting to get into Hall H.

To promote the upcoming debut of midseason thriller The Following, Fox is giving away this Edgar Allen Poe-inspired T shirt at Comic-Con this week.

In the show, serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) is obsessed with Poe’s work, and one of his fans gets her body tattooed with the author’s writing (trailer below). This rather readable shirt is covered with Poe’s classic narrative poem “The Raven.” The shirt will be available to Comic-Con’s weak and weary who are tap-tap-tapping at Fox’s booth #4313, with creator Kevin Williamson, executive producer Marcos Siega and stars Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy signing autographs on Sunday.
