Free Comic Book Day

When I wrote a few weeks ago that I was going to slow down on my blogging, I had no idea that I'd end up being as busy as I've been. I hadn't intended to go quiet for two weeks, but, well, here we are. It's a good thing that there wasn't much going on in the outside world while I had to devote all my time to my latest work project (which will be a nice book on the national parks come August, or so). I'm glad that I came to my own decision on the matter, though, because I would've had to quit for a few days anyway, but I would've been much more upset if I'd been forced to end my streak of daily posts rather than choosing to end it on my own terms.

There is an awful lot to catch up on, and I'm not sure exactly how much I'll actually get to cover, but for the time being, I'll just remind you to go out and find your local comic book store and then drop in on Saturday for Free Comic Book Day. Just like I've been working and not paying as much attention to what else is going on, I haven't been paying attention to Free Comic Book Day, either, so I just took a look at what various companies are offering myself. There appear to be almost 40 different titles, some all ages and some not, and while you can't expect every store to have every title, the bigger comics will be in most places. If you're not sure where your closest comic store might be, the Free Comic Book Day site has a locater that can tell you which ones are participating. For those of you looking for autographs, various creators will be appearing all over the country.

Go explore comic stores near you and find out what intrigues you (for free or otherwise). Then come back here to report how you liked what you got.

I didn't make it out to any comic book stores the other day. I just want to welcome you back from your blog-cation, and I hope you won't be taking another one soon!
