Tomorrow (Saturday the 7th) is Free Comic Book Day; tomorrow, this is out:
The FCBD issue tells a streamlined version of the events from CROWN OF SHADOWS, and is reasonably safe for kids (even if the rest of the series is very R-rated). It also includes a little introduction talking about the series as a whole. Even if you aren’t much of a comic fan, tomorrow is a great day to hunt down your local comic store, drop in, and grab yourself some goodies, all for the big price of absolutely nothing. You’re almost certain to find something you’ll like.
I’ll be at Jetpack Comics in Rochester, New Hampshire for Free Comic Book Day, with Christopher Golden, Jason Ciaramella, Tom Sniegoski, and Ed McGuinness. I should be there from around 1 – 4, and will be signing issues and hanging out and stuff. Drop in and see us. (Note that the actual signing will take place at the Rochester Knights of Columbus Hall, 40 Columbus Avenue… not the Jetpack store itself)
The Free Comic Book Day Issue is one good part of what has been a very happy couple weeks for LOCKE & KEY. Issue 6 of KEYS TO THE KINGDOM touched down at the end of April, and was met with a really tremendous response, including outstanding reviews on IGN and MTV. To top it off, Blair Butler made issue 6 the Pick of the Week. It don’t get better than that. Here’s the video:
