Free Comic Day 2008!

April 4, 2008

freecomicbookday.jpg

We are less than a month away from Free Comic Day 2008! It is officially being held on Saturday, May 3. Like last year we will have a ton of great comics to give away from dozens of publishers and genres of all types. We’ll also be running a couple of contests (more on that later in the month), as well as our great end-of-the-year sale (again, more on that later). This is the perfect time to get your friends, kids, nephews/nieces, or whomever into comics. So mark your calendar now, because you don’t want to miss out on the greatest day of the year (at least for comic fans)!

Hit the above link, or the one to the right, for more info and to see a list of free comics available that day.


Secret Invasion and Thought Balloons

April 1, 2008

Hey everybody, the Secret Invasion Prologue story is up for FREE at Marvel.com. Go check it out now! From what I can tell this story won’t be included with issue #1 on Wednesday.

Secondly, the whole thought balloon thing is getting way out of control, I think. Everyone is ranting about how it takes the quality of Mighty Avengers down a notch or two and I can see their point but here’s what I think.

I think Brian Michael Bendis is using these thought balloons as a device to give readers something to go back and re-read once Secret Invasion hits. Let’s face it the Mighty Avengers team probably has more than one skrull on it. It is likely that once the reveals happen we’ll be able to go back and read those in a completely different way. We’ll be able to see what the skrulls were thinking or take them as hints that the characters were skrulls.

Ex: Ares’ thought of “I shall have you fair creature” is that a love crazed greek god or is that a skrull lusting after his human prey?
