You guys, today is FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! It's a real thing; I didn't just make it up. I was in a communications course with eleven other co-workers the last two days, and we had to give a presentation (many, but one we got to prepare for), and I chose to talk about comics. I explained that comics were not just for kids, and there was much more than just superhero comics, recommending books like Y: The Last Man, Chew, 100 Bullets, and Powers. I also had to brave a hostile Q&A. I even led a field trip to a comic book store, all in a valiant attempt to introduce these people to the wonderful world of comics.
As a side note, I was told I was hysterical and I should do stand-up comedy.
Go to the FCBD website and punch in your zip code to find participating comic book stores. You can walk in and grab some FREE COMICS and learn more about this medium of storytelling. It's not like I haven't given you enough recommendations. Take a look, ask a staff member, see what you like.
In conclusion, one of my co-workers thinks it's inspiring to see someone so passionate about a hobby, and her youngest son is named Thor.
