JIM LEE’S CUSTOM SHIRT DESIGN FOR FREE COMIC BOOK DAY
Tue, 12/13/2011 - 3:30pm
Back in October, Diamond announced that 2012’s Free Comic Book Day t-shirt would feature a custom design by legendary artist Jim Lee. Recognizing that FCBD was – at the time – still a full seven months off, it was a tantalizing tease for those of us anxiously awaiting a glimpse at Lee’s design.
But while we still have to wait until May to pick up our shirts (and our free comic books!), we've got a special holiday surprise today: a first look at Jim's art. It’s an homage to a classic piece by José Luis García-López, re-imagined with Jim’s redesign of the JUSTICE LEAGUE for DC COMICS-THE NEW 52.
The shirt will be solicited in January 2012's Diamond PREVIEWS catalog, with proceeds going to support FCBD marketing and promotional efforts.
