Free Comic Book Day in Comic Book City, USA

The first Saturday in May each year is Free Comic Book Day, and this year I’ll be spending FCBD this year (May 5, 2012) in Comic Book City, USA (aka Greensboro, NC) at Acme Comics.

The gang at Acme Comics do not mess around when it comes to FCBD as they’re hosting a bevy of talented comics makers, like:

And that’s just at the store location! They’ve got a SECOND event happening at the nearby Greensboro Natural Science Center with even more talented, guests. If you’re in the NC Triad or surrounding area, consider taking the trip to Acme. As they like to say, it’s more than just Free Comic Book Day, it’s a convention.

Aside from all the free stuff, and boy oh boy will there be free stuff, I’ll also have available copies of my Puppet Hero Prints (seen here and here) as well as original SpongeBob Comics art pages and covers for sale through the store.

And if you’re NOT going to make it to Acme Comics, visit your local comic shop and see what they’re offering for FCBD. Maybe you can pick up the SpongeBob/Simpsons comic, featuring a cover by me.

And check out the episode of my podcast, “Stuff Said”, where I talk to the assistant manager at Acme Comics, Stephen Mayer.

Hooray for comics!
