The best Saturday of the year is nearly upon us! This year it is extra special, because in addition to being Free Comic Book Day it is Star Wars Day! May the 4th be with you all. I hope you all get the chance to make it out to your friendly local comic shop (FLCS) and pick up some free books for you and your family. To find a participating store near you click here. In my annual tradition, I will share my top five picks for FCBD in no particular order.
Grumble vs. The Goon - This title has the creator of Chew, John Layman's, official stamp of approval and I am immediately interested. This crossover comic takes the characters from Grumble and puts them in the world of The Goon. Grumble features a hustler who was turned into a pug, partial demons, and a threat from evil forces that threaten the fabric of existence. I will admit that I have not read any of this series yet, which is why I love FCBD and the opportunity to check out something new.
Starburns Presents - If you are looking for a strange collection of stories that include a beer drinking Sasquatch, an alien planet called Wrestletopia, and the granddaughter of Satan himself, look no further from this title. Rated Teen, this is not recommended for all-ages, but based on previous work from Starburns it is guaranteed to entertain.
