As if Free Comic Book Day weren’t enough reason to do the dance of joy, here’s even more reason to start counting days (150, if you were curious): Amanda Conner, of Harley Quinn/Red Sonja/Painkiller Jane/so much amazing comic book work fame, is designing this year’s t-shirt!

Look, one for boys, one for girls. Awesome, no?


And of course, there’s the poster, that I will need, to hang in my living room. For posterity.

Hopefully when you see it from a distance, that’s what it looks like.” I have been an Amanda Conner fan for years, so this is huge news for me. I’ll take one of everything, please.
