Free Comic Book Day 2011
The first weekend in May is Free Comic Book Day, and this year I spent it signing at Comix Revolution in Mt Prospect, Il. The mayor of the city had declared it officially Free Comic Book Day, so it was kind of a big deal – and there was a line out the door waiting to be let in and grab the latest offerings from their favorite – or new – publishers.
I was on hand selling my latest all-ages books: Reading with Pictures, Hope: The Hero Initiative, and Junkyard Chase. There were also sketch cards and artwork available for sale and signing.
The crowds were great, and before you knew it I was not only selling my wares – I was DJing the day away with my iPad.
People were coming up to me asking not only about the books, but also about the music – which was a great way to connect to the fans.
Several kids even came up to me with a business card and some sample pages, which was awesome!
Unfortunately I didn’t take any pictures, but it was a great time with some great people. Thanks so much to Comix Revolution for having me out to sign, and thanks to everyone who came out to say hi and buy stuff! You rock!
See you guys next year for FCBD for more awesome comic goodness!
