Last week, I talked about Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) being held this past Saturday, May 7. I managed to get to three different stores on that day, and I noticed a few things I wanted to talk about. Also, friends attended other locations, and they also gave me things to talk about as well!
“When are the lesser known Marvel characters getting their own series?” You mean characters like Cloak and Dagger? “YES!” They are, and the live action series is headed to the Freeform network.

We discuss many of the projects Bohdan and his team, including Jeremy Katanic
Every once in a while, I find it helpful to re-examine why you do what you do. For example, I used to collect Disney action figures until I realized that they really didn’t rock my boat any longer. I ended up giving many of them away to neighborhood kids since I couldn’t sell them on the Internet. The same is true about local comics shops. There have been times when I’ve been complacent after patronizing the same store for an extended period of time. When I stop to think about it, it had morphed into a place I honestly didn’t care
As we draw 2015 to a close, rumors are bouncing around the Internet that DC is going to follow Marvel’s lead by introducing more bi-weekly (every other week) comics to our weekly pull lists. I’m both happy and concerned about this notion, so let me express both aspects.
