Take your kids to Free Comic Book Day 2010.

It must be spring because another Free Comic Book Day is this Saturday, May 1st.  It's a big deal in my household.  My daughter's and I can't wait to go get some free comics.  You know what's better than free comics?  Nothing.  Nothing is better than free comics.  If you are fully functional nerd then you don't need me to tell you about it and I'm sure you are already planning on going to your local comic shop but I do want to yell at parents out there for  a second.  So...

HEY PARENTS!!!  Take your kids to get some free comics already.  Yeesh.  They deserve it.  However, make sure you pay attention. A lot of the companies use FCBD as a way to bring in young readers and they make some great books for kids.  Other companies use it as a way to promote their new properties to the already existing comic shop customer.  Translation, those comics are for grown ups. (And are usually terrible.)  So, pay attention.  It's just like going trick and or treating at Halloween folks.  You need to check the bag before you give little Cody his treats.  (Also, it might be a good idea to wear reflective clothing.)

Other clicking you need to do is to go to the Wide Awake Press website and read their FCBD anthology.  It should be ready to read on Saturday and features a lot of my most favoritest people in comix.  Check it out. The preview video is at the top of this post. Scrolly with your finger and lookie with your eye balls.

Happy Free Comic Book Day everyone!

Your best pal ever,
