Bongo Comics Has a 2009 FCBD Comic!


May 2nd 2009 Is FCBD!

That's The Acronym For

"Free Comic Book Day"!

Oh, And Tell 'Em Wolverine Sent You!

Okay Folks, it's almost here!  That's right, because on Saturday May 2nd - 2009, many local comic book stores, (LCBS), across the USA will participate in the Eighth Annual Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) !

So what does that mean to You??!!  Well, it could mean that you go to a participating comic book store, where you get can free comic books, possibly including the Bongo Comics FCBD comic book shown above!

It could be that simple!  Of course each privately owned LCBS has the right to put its' own limit(s) on how many free comics that it will distribute. (Because it does cost each store owner money to purchase the FCBD comics to distribute for free.) Some stores will only have some, but not all of the many FCBD comics that have printed for this special day.

When I say that, I mean that All of the major publishers and a lot of the smaller ones have printed special edition comics designed to hand out for free at those stores.

Some of the publishers printed 'samplers' of their whole line.  Others figured that printing 'prequels' to their major upcoming events in the regular series could entice you to join them for that story arc.  Yet others are free issues of a regular ongoing unlimited series so that you can get a 'feel' of what the comic book is about.

Whatever the publishers' reasons they have elected to print a comic book for FCBD, it’s a chance for YOU to try something out something new, whether you read comics every week or if you’ve never picked one up until this May 2nd!

And for You Comic Book Fans... It's a perfect day for you to take a friend to a LCBS after viewing the new 'Wolverine' movie that opens the day before on May 1st.  What could be better than that to introduce your friend(s) to Comics on Film and in Print?!

By the way, in the video above at the top right of this blog post, it is Hugh Jackman, star of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" who talks about Free Comic Book Day, and the importance of comics in fighting illiteracy at the beginning of the video. 

Of course since this is a tie-in weekend, the FCBD plug is followed by a theatrical trailer for the "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" film. But what the heck, both of those clips are good viewing!  Just ask my wife who is a big Hugh Jackman fan, LOL!   (Video used by permission. Copyright 2009, 20th Century Fox, All Rights Reserved.)

"Participating in the Free Comic Book Day with a signing at Outland Comics in the Teton Village Shopping Center, Idaho Falls".  She will also be discussing her upcoming projects with Outland Comics while signing.   Details of this  event as shown below :

Time:            11:00am - 2:00pm
Location:       Outland Comics

City/Town:    Idaho Falls, Idaho

BTW, I'll be re-posting this blog a few more times in the near future.   If YOU are a comic book creator / writer / artist / inker/ letterer/ etc., feel free to message me of where you will be signing on this special Day!

And for those of you that are new to our blog today, we have an ongoing online 'Comic Con and Pop Culture Convention' ourselves here at "Make It So Marketing Inc.", what with our daily blog posts,  and new listings of items for sale in our online eBay Featured Store!  However due to the fact that we are online only, and not a brick & mortar store, we won't be participating in this FCBD event this year other than blogging where you can pick these FCBD comics at, and possibly see a comics creator!

Thanks again to all of YOU reading our current and archived blog posts!
