Free Comic Book Day Is Upon Us!

Support Independent Comics!

Tomorrow is Free Comic Book Day and to celebrate, I read EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. of the 28 comics that will be available at finer comic book shops around the country, and in other parts of the world! Why would I do such a thing, you ask? So I could write up a comprehensive review of them for Buzzscope, that's why! Check it out here, along with an updated interview with FCBD founder, Joe Field. Good stuff!

Comics being released tomorrow, 5/7/05, courtesy of ComicList. To find a participating comics retailer near you, click here.

I want them all! But "The Adventures of Paul" sounds especially interesting. Hopefully the store nearest to my house will still be giving out books after I get outta work!

I've never been much in comic books, but it sound like a much more interesting hobby than reading catechisms all day.
