Free Comic Book Day 2009 - UPDATED

I'll be appearing at Excellent Adventures Comics in Ballston Spa, NY on May 2nd for the annual Free Comic Book Day. For those of you who don't know, this has been going on across the country for a few years now as a way to bring customers into comic shops. Various companies give out special free comics to promote their books and a lot of shops set up signings from local artists.

This year, Excellent Adventures will be hosting me and writer Todd Dezago (of SENSATIONAL SPIDER-MAN and TELLOS fame). So if you're going to be in the area, stop on by and support a great local comic book store.

And since it is a Free Comic Book Day event, I may have to dig through my boxes of comp copies and find some things to give away. Any requests?

UPDATE: In my ongoing gleeful promotion of my friend Dan Waters, he will also be making an appearance around the same time in Massachusetts to promote the paperback edition of GENERATION DEAD. I would encourage everyone in New England to show up and ask him how his ongoing war against the Yeti invasion is going (don't ask, it's one of those annoying inside jokes).

Sweet. Your friend's event is 5 minutes from my sister's house. I may have to wander by.

If you went, that would be SWEET. You'll love Dan. One of the nicest guys in the world.

Terrible taste in comic book artists, though...


p.s. But if you do go, you've got to promise me you'll make some sort of Yeti reference. I'm really trying to make that joke catch on.

Ah, those sweet yeti. I thought you were having some con shirts made? Must have them before necon...

Unfortunately it's just a hair too early for me to make it out there after work, so I'll just have to harass Dan via the internet for a while longer. However, I am free to harass you in person on 5/2. I couldn't make the last 2, so you're overdue.
