Hey, you know what next Saturday is? It's Free Comic Book Day! You don't know what Free Comic Book Day is? Why, it's the most wonderful day of all! It's a day when across the world the comic book community, in the form of artists, comic book stores and small groups of fairies and/or elves join forces to give free comic books to people who might not normally read them! It's a way of bringing the comic book world out into the Real World, and showing parents with children who might be interested in comics, or the parents themselves, or the jaded hipsters or older former readers of comics that comic books are still an amazing and vital artform, and should be consumed by all! Oh joy, oh happy day that it is, God bless us everyone!
Anyway. The general point of that was that Free Comic Book Day is awesome, and my lovely local comic store in Halifax, Strange Adventures, is going to put on their annual hoopla to celebrate it. Here's some info about the event, including where and when it is (not in the actual Strange Adventures store, because that would be disastrous and would result in many people being trampled). I'll be there sketching for small children, and hopefully eating lunch at one point so we don't get a repeat of last year in which I was stupid and didn't go find food. I still had a fantastic time, and I'm sure this year will be just as great.
... one thing that is DEFINITELY GREAT is that my one page comic is in the Comic Festival FCBD offering, which I got to read in its entirety and it is awesome. Everyone should try really really hard to pick up a copy, because it's just that nifty. And all ages, so you can give it to anyone, your grumpy older relatives or small adorable younger ones. Srsly, it rules, and I'm really proud to be a part of it.
So yeah. Free Comic Book Day. Be there or be ... somewhere else, I guess.
