TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3303:
Each year since 2001, either myself, or Tina and I have 'attended' the special event 'Free Comic Book Day', (FCBD), in San Diego, in one way or the other!
In 2009, Tina and I surveyed almost all of the FCBD events at our Local Comic Book Shops in the San Diego Metro Area, (LCBS), in order to find out how the response was to that day, and to find out how each LCBS participated. Here are the links to those two blogs, Part 1 & Part 2, and you won't believe how many LCBS we visited! So many it took two blog posts!
Last year I blogged and 'Facebooked Mobiled' from a LCBS, SoCal Comics, in the middle of all the action! Thanks again to Jaime Newbold for inviting me to do so!
So, yes... You could say I am an active participant in the FCBD tradition, which is going to celebrate its 10th Anniversary in 2011!
In honor of that... FCBD has already publicized what the 'Gold Level of Sponsorship' Comics will be! I've chosen a few to show you here today, and the others can be seen at the FCBD web site itself here!
So, like the folks at FCBD say... "Save The Date", which in this case will be Saturday, May 7th of 2011!

For those of you that didn't know me before today... I first set up as a 'dealer' at the 1972 San Diego West Coast Comic Con (SDCC) at the El Cortez Hotel. So I've been around comic conventions for a little while, LOL!
My wife Tina and I now have an on-line exhibitor (dealer) table at the first "virtual" comic con titled the "Facebook Comic Con" (FBCC)!
You can view our dealer table and interact with us there on Facebook by clicking this link, which takes you to our table named: 'Facebook Comic Con | Make It So Marketing'. Plus I have a chapter in a new book coming out in December of 2010, that is pictured above, "Gotham City 14 Miles"! Click here to become a 'Fan' of the GC14M Facebook Fan Page!.
Also, if you are a Facebook member and would like to also join my Facebook Network, I would have liked to have sent you a Friend Request. However, I have reached the maximum of 5,000 Facebook Friends and Fan pages 'limit' already, so I have now added on a personal Facebook Fan Page of my own!
Talking about comics: if YOU are a comics creator, (writer, penciler, inker, colorist, letterer, etc.), OR even a Comics / Magazine Publisher, feel free to contact me regarding YOUR works for a possible mention / review!
I've made a special blog post about: "How To Best Submit YOUR Publication For Possible Review!" for those creators / publishers that would like to possibly have their publications mentioned or reviewed. Just click on the link provided in this paragraph!
