Free Comic Book Day 2014 T-shirt Designed by Skottie Young Revealed

You'll have a choice color and size.

It's never too early to start thinking about Free Comic Book Day. Every year publishers and retailers join forces to give free comics to the fans and potential new readers. We often get some great and important story introductions. What you might not have thought about is getting a t-shirt to commemorate the day.

Diamond Comics has announced the FCBD 2014 commemorative t-shirt will feature new art by Skottie Young.

Skottie said the following:

“I just took the spirit of the characters we all love from comics and tried to capture them. I love comics and a day where a ton of them are free, that's exciting. I see it as a day of discovery for new readers, so that was my point of view when designing the shirt. A kid, new to the world of comics, looks over his shoulder and is shocked by the world he's found himself in!"

The shirt will be available in black, white and red, in adult small to XXL. Youth sizes will be available in small to large. All proceeds to to support Free Comic Book Day's marketing and promotional efforts.

Youth SMALL-L T-Shirt ..............................MSRP: 6.75

Adult SMALL-XL T-Shirt.....................................MSRP: $8.50

Adult XXL T-Shirt..................................MSRP: $10.50

The image will also be available in a commemorative poster for $7.99. Here's a bigger look at the image:

You can find more information on the Free Comic Book Day website (by clicking HERE).

The shirt, poster and complete listings of all sixty FCBD titles can be found in the January issue of Diamond's PREVIEWS catalog, on sale in comic shops on January 1, 2014. Be sure to let your local shop know you are interested so they order you the shirt in your size.

Love the drawing, would much rather they relegated the FCBD info to the back of the shirt but for $8, why not?

@g_man: Oh yeah. Can't remember the last time I bought a shirt of any kind for under $10. I'm gonna wear it and run around my neighborhood yelling "Look at my shirt!!!" That should do nothing but garner positive interest in comic books...right?

@mucklefluga: I'm wondering how much it would cost if it is. The current exchange rate would put it at £5.21, but it may end up being higher than just the exchange rate. It probably wouldn't be more than £8.50 though, which still isn't too bad.
