The Fairly OddParents Creator Designs Free Comic Book Day 2017 Commemorative T-Shirt
Butch Hartman is a multiple Emmy and ANNIE Award-nominated and BAFTA-winning animator, writer, director, producer, illustrator, and actor, best known for creating the long-running series The Fairly OddParents, which debuted on Nickelodeon fifteen years ago. Hartman is also the creator of Nick's two other hugely popular series Danny Phantom and T.U.F.F. Puppy.
Hartman's artwork for the FCBD 2017 Commemorative T-Shirt captures the spirit of both comics and comic book stores. As hubs of the comic book community, comic book stores are the perfect place for fans of all kinds to come together and enjoy a wide array of books. The art showcases that diversity with the fans and comic book heroes reading together in front of a Free Comic Book Day participating store.
In addition to the FCBD 2017 T-shirt, Diamond Comic Distributors is proud to present a commemorative poster and bookmark. The poster is designed by acclaimed Marvel cover artist Afua Richardson (Black Panther: World of Wakanda) and the bookmark is designed by BOOM! Studios artist Rian Sygh (The Backstagers, Fionna and Cake). The poster is also available for pre-order at comic shops in January, while the bookmark will be available as promotional material. All proceeds go to support Free Comic Book Day's marketing and promotional efforts.
The commemorative Free Comic Book Day T-shirt and poster, plus the complete listing of the FCBD 2017 titles, will be available in the January issue of PREVIEWS, in comic shops 12/28.
