Every summer, the nation’s comic shops host “Free Comic Book Day,” on which they all give away–get this–Free Comic Books! Some companies use it to launch new material, some use it to introduce new readers to familiar concepts. And some stores bring in comics illuminati to sign copies of their work and promote the industry. In a fit of insanity, the good folks at Dr. No’s have invited me to come sign some preview copies of SUNDOWN. If you happen to find yourself in Marietta this Saturday between 12 and 3, stop by and say hello. For more information, check out Dr. No’s website. And even if you can’t make it out to see me, hit your local comic shop and grab some good new reading. Best bets: the Image Comics “Flight” anthology sampler, a collection of brilliant tales revolving around the metaphor of flight, and Beckett Comics’ “Robin Hood and the Seven Samurai,” a reimagining of the Robin Hood mythos in Japan. These guys did “Sleeping Beauty” as a spaghetti western last year, and it was one of the best books of the year. You can also find special Simpsons, Batman, Spider-Man/Fantastic Four, and Star Wars comics, among many others. Well worth the trip to your local comic shop.
