As even the establishment media has been forced to notice over the last few years, Free Comic Book Day has become a sensation. Fueled part by the success of the comic book movies and record prices paid for high grade back issues, the social acceptance of comic characters has never been higher.
So, wouldn't this be a great time to introduce some new people to the notion of reading, enjoying and collecting comics?
The Overstreet Guide To Collecting Comics FCBD 2010 Edition tackles comic book collecting, grading, storage, conventions, prices, and more. It showcases the issues facing new collectors and experienced enthusiasts alike.
Free Comic Book Day is May 1, 2010.
It's written by me, illustrated by Gene Gonzales (it's a comic book-text hybrid), with lots of photos, a cover by the Fraim brothers, and I hope it's some fun.
