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.
May is going to be a big month for me in terms of comic book releases! We’ve got the conclusion of the fourth arc of The Sixth Gun, the release of Spider-Man: Season One, my first issue of Venom (co-written with Rick Remender) and more! Here’s a quick run-down! Please head to your local comic book store now and ask them to order and hold these books for you!

Casting Speculation: The Sixth Gun TV Series – iFanboy indulges in the Internet’s favorite pastime–cast speculation, in this case regarding the upcoming adaptation of The Sixth Gun. I think it’s a pretty good dream cast.
Check out this announcement on USA Today. Next year, Marvel launches a series of “Season One” books, including Spider-Man: Season One by Neil Edwards and myself.
Gotta tell ya, I think it’s funny being referred to as a “young” writer.
