Free Comic Book Day: May 5, 2018

 

What is Free Comic Book Day

Free Comic Book Day is always on the first Saturday of May. This year that is May 5. It is where comic book shops promote comic books by giving them to patrons for free. It is perfect time to try out comics for those who are newly interested or to discover a new series that may become one of your new favorites.

 

Where can I get in on this?

 

Hometown Comics, Greenfield’s local comic shop, is participating this year, like they have for the last 8 years. According to their event page:

For this one day only each person can pick out 4 of the Special “Free Comic Book Day” comics.
We will also have special guests including local author George Kramer and “The Finest” A G.I. Joe costuming club.
We will also have specials, drawings for prizes and of course Fun.

Little Guardians, Book 3: Tane and the Spirit Dragon

During our YA Author Festival on September 10th, nine authors, including the creators of Little Guardians, Ed Cho and Lee Cherolis, joined us for panels, workshops, hang out sessions, book signings and a trivia contest. Ed and Lee make great trivia judges, in case you were wondering.
Not only did we ask them to tell us about the process of creating Little Guardians, but we also asked them to pull their favorite books from our collection!

 

After you read our copies of the Little Guardians, check out the creators’ favorites while you wait for their third book to hit our shelves!
