Guess I’ll be heading to my local comic store VERY early on May 5 for the start of Free Comic Book Day (FCBD), considering all the cool new books this time out, featuring fewer retreads and more new concepts — including a bunch of all-ages selections — than ever before.
One of those intriguing debuts is Image Comics’ The Astounding Wolf-Man, and evidently retailers agree. Some 115,000 copies of the FCBD special are being printed according to series co-creator Jason Howard who received the up-close-and-personal treatment recently in the Lansing State Journal. I especially enjoy reading about folks making it in the comics world whilst toiling in real world jobs, like Howard, who manages an art staff of 24 for Dart Container.
