Awesome! So as of today, the Gold and Silver level sponsor comic book have been announced for 2012's Free Comic Book Day, and Archie Comics has books in each!
First up, Gold Level, is the first ever Mega Man FCBD issue! This is gonna' be a reprint of the very first issue which is an awesome origin story and a perfect introduction to this iconic video game hero! And it features a gorgeously ink-and-color version of Chad Thomas' original sketch variant. (Inks by Fabio ReDivo and colors by Evan Stanley.)
Next up, Silver Level, is this year's Sonic the Hedgehog FCBD ish! No details have been released for it yet, though "Two Steps Back..." was the story featured in Sonic the Hedgehog #230... I got to work on this cover with the ever-talented Tracy Yardley! Bigger sized, raw artwork to be shown off later.
So yeah, there ya' go! I'm pretty pumped that there are gonna' be TWO awesome books that I got to have a hand in on the FCBD tables this next year. Haven't solidified my plans yet for the event, but I will definitely be someplace for some signings/sketches! Hope to see you guys out there!
