I’m so pleased to announce that Hometown Comics in Edwardsville, IL, has invited me to be among their special guests during Free Comic Book Day on Saturday, May 2nd!
Free Comic Book Day is a nationwide promotional event put together by the comic book publishers and shops to try to reach new readers. Many of the publishers submit exclusive comic books for this specific day and they are totally free. All you have to do is come in and grab one. Some of the comic books are geared towards adults (not pornographic, just mature themes), but many of them are also aimed at young children. For a list of what comic books will be available that day, visit this link: http://www.freecomicbookday.com/comics.asp
Hometown Comics is in downtown Edwardsville, IL, at 110 E. Vandalia Street. They plan to have local artists drawing sketches for children, a custom motorcycle designed to look like Ghost Rider’s, and are inviting people to show up dressed as their favorite character. Call Doug at 618-655-0707 for more information and visit their MySpace page here: http://www.myspace.com/hometowncomics
The shop opens at 10:00 A.M. and I’ll be there at that time. All three of my books will be for sale and I’m currently trying to decide which of my superhero shirts I’ll wear that day. I hope you’ll come out to Hometown Comics on Saturday, May 2nd, grab a free comic for you or your child, take part in the festivities, and say hi.
