It’s a little behind us now, but I thought I’d reminisce about Free Comic Book Day. It was May 6th , a little before 9 AM in front of my local Comic Shop when the idea for this blog post was born.
Free Comic Book Day is something I look forward to every year. It’s always a good time to get out and get some free stuff from the publishers, there’s usually some good deals around too. The fact that for the past few years I’ve been able to go see a Hollywood blockbuster adapting comic material has really amped up my anticipation. Overall a really good time to be into comics. Here’s a snippet of the books I picked up.
I decided to get cracking on a web comic to go along with this blog post, something that was brewing in the back of my head while I was waiting in line that morning. I wrote up my script and reached out to a new team to bring it to life.
Ryo Kawakami was kind enough to provide art for this one. Fariz Muzakki lent his talents for the colors. You’ll be seeing some more from them in the near future here. I also went in and added some sound effects and the credits, but it was my first time doing it (be gentle). You can see the page right over here or go over to the web comic tab.
Thanks for reading!
