We’ve got a TON planned for Free Comic Book Day 2010! First and foremost, you know we always like having an artist that has a Free Comic Book out that day, so we’re proud to have DC Comics Superstar artist (and former Nortongers owner) MIKE NORTON!! He has art in the Free Comic Day comic DC Kids Mega-Sampler!
Also, coming all the way from Michigan, we finally get to have an event with one of our favorite comic-industry people and ultra Star Wars fan KATIE COOK who will be here for almost the whole day doing awesome sketches and talking about Fraggle Rock to anyone who will listen!
And you know how we love music at this event, too, right? Well we’ll also have WEDNESDAY HEROES in-store all day. Not only will they play a set of super-hero themed music around 3pm, but they’ll also be selling ‘Sonic Sketches’ where they’ll write and record a short original song on the spot for you and you’ll get a CD of your song!
*WHEW* And don’t forget the FREE COMICS!!
