Free Comic Book Day!
I'm heading out of town for a wedding, but before I go I wanted to give a shout out to Free Comic Book Day.
For those of you unaware, FCBD is a day where local comic book shops give away free comics to anyone who comes in. This year it's Saturday May 5th. I highly suggest going to see "The Avengers" and then stopping by one of the many FCBD events spread across the country.
It's a really important day because retailers normally end up making bank. Even more so, it draws in a lot of people who don't normally visit comic shops. The idea being that a new visitor will then decide to become a returning customer.
My publisher Th3rd World Studios has been doing a FCBD for years. This year's book is a preview of their new series "Finding Gossamyr." You can read a preview of the book here.
Even cooler is that we have a "Holiday Wars" ad in the book. So if you are hitting up your local comic shop for FCBD make sure you pick up a copy of "Finding Gossamyr." Then show all your friends our ad and talk them into backing us on Kickstarter!
