In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Spy vs. Spy, DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee joins the ranks of other artists who’ve each made their mark on the iconic spy design (in toy form) - including Weird Al Yankovic, Bob Staake, Peter Kuper, Michael Allred, the Prohias family, Bill Amend, Pendleton Ward, Bill Morrison, Thomas Weiser and Casey Willis, the legendary Al Jaffee and many more. Check out Lee's design, and if you're in New York...stop by the MAD Magazine panel at New York Comic Con on Sunday at 1:15pm for the official unveiling.
Diamond announced today that next year's Free Comic Book Day t-shirt will feature DC COMICS-THE NEW 52. Oh and Jim Lee has agreed to do the art for the custom shirt. Last year's shirt with art by Darwyn Cooke was pretty amazing. What will Jim cook up?
May is still a long way off and we don't have the design to share just yet, so everybody who loves free comic books (and t-shirts) should keep checking THE SOURCE for updates.
It’s official! All 52 first issues of DC Entertainment’s historic publishing initiative DC COMICS – THE NEW 52 have sold out from Diamond Comic Distributors in advance of publication. And all 52 issues will receive second printings.
