Jim Lee's 2012 FCBD T-shirt Design Revealed
Headline - Press release
Posted by Richard Boom on Dec 14, 2011
DC Entertainment and Diamond Book Distributors unveiled today a custom design for 2012’s Free Comic Book Day t-shirt, illustrated by legendary artist and DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee. The image features the Justice League, as seen in the bestselling comic book series written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by Lee.
The shirt will be on sale in comic shops on April 11, in advance of Free Comic Book Day on May 5. It will be solicited in January 2012's Diamond PREVIEWS catalog, and customers are encouraged to preorder with their local comic shop by January 18.
The illustration by Lee is an homage to a classic piece of Justice League art by José Luis García-López.
"It's an honor to have Jim Lee design 2012’s FCBD Commemorative T-shirt," said Free Comic Book Day spokesperson Leslie Bowser. "Jim’s artwork featuring the Justice League from DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 will certainly entice a lot of current fans. And it’s all for a good cause, as all proceeds go to our marketing efforts to spread the word about FCBD to new customers."
The FCBD Commemorative Artist T-Shirt is a growing tradition, with a new artist providing artwork for the special design each year. This year’s shirt is a follow-up to the first two commemorative T-shirts, which featured artwork from Darwyn Cooke and Sergio Aragones in 2011 and 2010, respectively.
