If you've been checking your calendars, you all know what today's column is about. Yep. It's that time of year again...
125. Free Comic Book Day
You all saw this one coming, right? It's time for everyone's favorite day of the year-- Free Comic Book Day, when the publishers and retailers get together to spread their love of comics to the masses who don't get what all the fuss is about and don't want to spend their hard-earned money on the things. Hard to believe they've been doing this for six years, now.
This year is an especially great one because there's a ton of wonderful stuff coming out. For instance:
Brand-new Spider-Man comic by Dan Slott and Phil Jimenez!
Brand-new Image series, the Astounding Wolf-Man, written by Robert Kirkman, debuts!
Unseen Peanuts from Fantagraphics, finally reprinting Peanuts stories that've never seen the light of day since they were originally published!
Plus: Gumby! Wahoo Morris! Owly! Whiteout! Marvel Adventures! Mickey Mouse! Pirates vs. Ninjas! Little Archie! Umbrella Academy! Simpsons! Sonic! Transformers! And a ton of other cool stuff!
If you're lucky enough to have a shop that's celebrating this esteemed event, tell all your friends, and bring all the neighborhood kids.
Remember, look for the FCBD banner and snatch 'em up while they're still available.
