Free Comic Book Day is Tomorrow!

Art by moi.

It’s the yearly trip to funny book mecca, tomorrow! There will be 42 different free comic books available at your local comics shop on Saturday, May 5th. Major publishers like Marvel and DC will have offerings as well as smaller imprints. Looking at the list, I see many interesting books to seek out. Sure to be one of the hottest FCBD comics, Dinosaurs vs. Aliens, published by Liquid Comics and written by comics legend Grant Morrison, is in the works to become a major motion picture by Barry Sonnenfeld. The excellent publisher, Archaia Entertainment, is actually doing a hardcover free comic book called Mouse Guard, Labyrinth & More featuring their various properties. Marvel has a new original Avengers story by longtime Avengers scribe, Brian Michael Bendis, in their free comic book. With the Avengers movie currently shredding up the box office, this will surely be one of the most popular FCBD comics!
Free Comic Book Day is a chance to get a free sampling of what the current comics industry has to offer but it’s also a day to go out and support your local mom-and-pop comics store. Just remember, the shops actually have to pay for all of the free comics so be nice and buy at least one thing if you can.
