May 4th is the annual Free Comic Book Day celebration all across this great nerd nation and once again, I will be signing and sketching at Comic World & Games in Dubuque, IA. For those of you who are unaware, Free Comic Book Day (or FCBD) is a day when publishers provide comic stores with promotional comics to give away to their patrons in order to bring in new readers and to celebrate the medium we love so much. Many shops will also have sales and signings on FCBD. You can learn more about this nerd holiday here: http://www.freecomicbookday.com/
During my signing at Comic World, I will be debuting two new print comics—Dear Dinosaur Vol. III: How to Avoid Extinction and my third MAKEbelieve minicomic for young readers, Am I a Vampire?
