FCBD Fun

1 Flares 1 Flares ×

Clear your Saturday schedule.  Find your nearest comic book store.  Go there directly.  Load up on FREE comics. Head home. Be happy.

That’s right folks!  May 5th is Free Comic Book Day and in celebration of this most exciting event, comic books stores across the globe are handing out dozens of free titles to anyone to pops in their store.  It’s a great way to reward long-time fans and introduce new readers to comics. Not. To. Be. Missed. Unless you’re in Cayman…where there is no FCBD this year. SOB! But that hasn’t kept me from showing my comic book love. While I may not have had the time to whip up another batch of Batcakes, I did manage to swing a quick tribute to one of my all time favorite comics: Bone.

Smiley and Bartleby.  Pre-consumption.

  21. Wow…who knew? When I met my husband back when we were just youngsters, he was one of those geeky types that collected comic books and a pretty amazing artist himself. Now, all these years later, our son is an art major studying computer animation in college 🙂 Comic books hold a special place in my heart.

  22. Whoa, really? I've never heard of free comics day before! I will have to investigate in our neighborhood.
    Such cute cookies!!

  25. Oh, so CUTE!!! I could never draw so well…I'll just have to admire your artwork 🙂 I never heard of FCBD…thanks for enlightening me!

  26. Thats very creative with the simple illustration on the cookies. Wonder if I can do that with my not very great drawing skills.

  27. What a great idea for making cookies. I love comics…I'm going to have to dig them out and re-read this weekend.

  28. Yay a comic book day! My local comic book shop had to close. 🙁 But I can find the next closest and see if I can help keep their doors open. 🙂

  29. Ah this is great. My kids are going tomorrow. They're 18 and 23, I love it.

  30. Wow, Free comic book day? Wish I read them but I do love your cookie. What great art skills 🙂

  34. Awwwwwww! I'm going to see Jeff Smith tomorrow in Toronto at a convention. Excited to get an utograph!

  35. For those who may not know 'Bone', the characters are (from left) Smiley Bone and his pal Bartelby. This comic is my absolute favourite of all time.

  36. That is so cool that there is a day for this! I'm sure you are going to be allowed first pick if you bring these delicious themed treats 🙂

    Cheers
