Mark Waid Participates in Free Comic Book Day

Sometimes I rue the day I left California for the vast wastelands of Western Kansas… Mainly because it means I can’t drive up to Collector’s Paradise in Winnetka, California to participate in the Hero Initiative Benefit Party during Free Comic Book Day 2009.  Mark Waid, Editor-in-Chief of Boom! Studios, Marc Guggenheim (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, GREEN LANTERN movie), Jim Mahfood (GRRL SCOUTS, CLERKS), David Wohl (co-creator of WITCHBLADE, DARKNESS) Mike Kunkel (HEROBEAR AND KID), are among some of the guests scheduled to appear.

Zeus Comics Announces Free Comic Book Day Guests

I like comic book stores that really get into Free Comic Book Day (Saturday, May 2, 2009).  Sure, having a gigantic selection of free comics is a good idea, but those stores that bring in special guests are cranking the event up to the next level.  Take Zeus Comics for example; the store not only has ordered 4000 comics but is bringing in some cool guests. Scott Kurtz: creator of PVP, Ding!, co-creator and writer of Truth, Justin and The American Way. Matt Sturges: writer of House of Mystery, Blue Beetle, and Jack of Fables for DC/Vertigo Comics. Kristian Donaldson:…

Unfortunately, as we do not have the logistics to accurately plan a time of departure with a five-week old daughter, we missed out on many of the events at Heroes And Dreams. Fortunately, we did not miss out on the free comics! I picked up a copy of Gemstone Publishing’s EC Sampler, my wife chose the Bongo Comics Free-For-All, and we picked up a copy of DC’s…
