Diamond Comic Distributors has announced that this year’s Free Comic Book Day will get its first ever commemorative t-shirt coming directly from Sergio Aragones.
â€œWe wanted to create a unique annual event T-shirt and who better to start with than Sergio?â€ commented FCBD spokesperson Elissa Lynch. â€œWe think heâ€™s done a beautiful job of capturing the excitement and personalities found in comic shops and on Free Comic Book Day.â€
“I’m very proud, of course,” said Sergio about being the first FCBD artist. “The art is not based on any one comic book shop, it is my imaginationâ€”it is how I think shops look like, full of young readers, moms, super heroes reading and buying comics.”
Expect the T-Shirt to be available in April 2010.
