FCBD19 & SWDay...

Not only is today Star Wars Day ("May the Fourth be with You!"), but it also coincides with Free Comic Book Day! It's like Mecca for geeks, I tell ya!

One of the titles I'm looking forward to is the special Stranger Things issue that comes complete with a new Black Hammer short story from my favorite writer Jeff Lemire. 


Even Jeff wants you to pick it up!

There are a ton of great free titles that will be released. Okay, maybe not a literal "ton," but 51 is pretty cool. Nathan and I will be hitting two comic shops and our library to see how much we can nab since stores usually have a limit on how much you can get in a single visit. There's a really good preview of them all on

My want list includes: 

  • The Dark Age
  • Deadly Class
  • My Favorite Thing is Monsters
  • Interceptor
  • Punchline
  • Riverdale
  • Stranger Things
  • Zagor: The Alien Saga

For Nathan, I'd really like to nab:

  • Blastosaurus
  • Gillbert (he loves the DC Pets books from Art Baltasar)
  • Wolfie Monster & the Big Bad Pizza Battle

These all sound great. I cannot wait. 

Now find your local shop and show them some love. Buy something, too! Don't just pick up free stuff.

Man, I haven't read a comic in ages. Funny, I will be going to a comic book store in a couple of hours to play D&D for the first time since I was 18. But they don't show up in that free comic locator.


Did you ask to see if they had some anyway?


No, I didn't.

I did FCBD this year and they were all out of the Stranger Things comic. I've not watched the Netflix show yet, so not too bummed about that.


Season 3 drops on July 4, so it’s a good time to start catching up.
