This Saturday, May 5th, is Free Comic Book Day! If you’re not familiar with the event, it’s the one day a year when participating comic book shops across America join together in handing out comic books for free to anyone who walks through their doors. It’s a very cool event. Check with your local shops to see if they are participating, then head on out!
My Sixth Gun co-creator Brian Hurtt and I will be signing books all day long at Acme Comics in Greensboro, North Carolina. I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about the store, so I’m really looking forward to this.
Of special note… Spider-Man: Season One, the graphic novel I wrote, is coming out on May 8th. But you can get the first chapter of the book for FREE on Free Comic Book Day. This book is a perfect introduction to the iconic wall crawler.
Also of special note… this year, FCBD falls on Cinco de Mayo. As I’ll be signing books all day, I’ll be unable to track down a Mexican restaurant.
Somebody bring me a margarita.
