Each year since 2002, the first Saturday in May is also known as FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!
In an effort to thank current readers and draw in new ones, publishers big and small give out thousands of comics at shops across the world to show what this amazing medium is capable of. Whether readers are into superheroes, cartoons or fun indie books, there’s always something for everyone.
To further support the comic industry, many shops welcome creators, both big and small, to their shops for signings, commissions and meet and greets. I was lucky enough to have been invited to spend Free Comic Book Day with the fine folks at Arena Comics and Gaming in Panama City, FL.
I’ll be joining several other creators to celebrate the event and I’ll be selling copies of the CHAMBERS trade paperback as well as the first issue of UNIT 44! A little something for everyone!
If you’re in the area, come say hello this Saturday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Central Time. Grab some free comics, take advantage of the store specials, and meet some folks who work hard to create the funny books.
