FREE Comics Guaranteed!

comicbookdayIt’s that time of year!  Comic creators crawl out from under their rocks to promote comic book literacy at comic shops, bookstores, and libraries!  I make a grand event out of the day by shaving most of the fuzz off my face.  Tomorrow I can be found at the West Linn Public Library.  That’s 1595 Burns Street, West Linn, OR 97068 from 12-5pm.  I will have a few freebies and might do some sketching, but when I say sketching I don’t really intend to draw something like this:Sketch_Spidey

I think Steve Ditko might be having a laugh this weekend as Spiderman 2 opens in theaters and all the kids rush to Free Comic Day hoping to get a quick sketch of Spiderman from a hunched over comic illustrator.   I don’t think Ditko had the word “quick” in mind when he designed that web pattern on Spidey’s uniform.  I hope the kid’s aren’t too disappointed when they get sketches from me that look more like this: QuickSketch_0102There is a  possibility they could have a mind altering experience with the likes of this: QuickSketch_0101If things really get out of hand, West Linn Security may be dragging me out of the library once they’ve discovered I’m handing out drawings like this: QuickSketch_0103But, let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.  Personally, I look forward to leaving the house and hope to make the most of it.  Free Comics at the library!  That’s a guarantee, because even  if they run out of the free floppies, you can still check something out with your library card!  Win Win!
