On the first Saturday in May each year, participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE to anyone who comes into their stores. This is a great way to bring those who may be unfamiliar with the comic book medium into the fold. In addition, this year's Free Comic Book Day just happens to fall on Star Wars Day! (May the 4th be with you!)
Writer and FBC co-founders Sam Rhodes (and Managing Editor Barbra Dillon) will be on hand at the LA-area comic shop to sign copies of Fanboy Comics‘ graphic novels, Identity Thief and Something Animal. Fans who stop by the store will have a chance to pick up their very own signed copies and to purchase the official Fanboy Comics t-shirt, so that they can show their geek pride in style. Plus, the FBC Staffers will have a number of free items to give away to those in attendance.
Something Animal is an 80-page graphic novel written by Bryant Dillon and Sam Rhodes, with vivid, full-color art by Robert Burrows. Created as a response to the current romantic view of the vampire motif, Something Animal is a dark and gritty tale of psychological terror that is sure to satisfy any fan of the horror genre.
Identity Thief is a suspenseful graphic novel written by Bryant Dillon and featuring over 60 pages of original art by Meaghan O'Keefe. Reminiscent of the horrific tales of The Twilight Zone or Creepshow, this thriller will allow fans to discover the monster lurking in Fanboy Comics' closet!
