Free Comic Book Day 2010
Saturday May 1st was Free Comic Book Day! FCBD is an annual event where comic shops across the country give away a selection of Free comic books. I was invited by Phantom of the Attic, a great shop here in Pittsburgh, to set up shop at a table and sell my wares, and Amber was invited in her Wonder Woman persona to help attract and entertain the fine folks who attended. The shop was packed for most of the day and I was busy with sketches. I sold a few prints, a bunch of the Guns preview books, some of the Monsters!*Mostly sketchbook, and even a t-shirt, (which I wasn't even displaying, I just brought them along in case).
It was great fun talking with a lot of local folks in this active comic scene they've got going in Pittsburgh. The good folks at Phantom were efficient and gracious, as always. They even had sandwiches for us guests, and later they brought out a bunch of cupcakes for whoever wanted one! I also walked away with a huge stash of free comics! Along with a three week backlog of my regular books, I've got a lot of reading to catch up on.
Here are the sketches I did at the show. See more pics on my facebook and flickr:
