Today is Free Comic Book Day!!!! YAY!

Free Comic Book Day is a single day - the first Saturday in May each year - when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world offer free comic books!

Free Comic book day is always a lot of fun! It's a great way to introduce comics to young readers, too. Most of today's comics are written for teens and adults- but there are a lot of comics for children, from Scooby Doo to Batman. Parents should encourage their kids to read comics- my dad did, and I learned vocabulary words, enjoyed writing my own stories, developed my abilities to draw and wound up creating my own comics. Today, I've published two books and am working on my third. Free comics day is a great opportunity to help your child develop their writing and artistic skulls, and for YOU to enjoy some great stories with awesome iconic characters like Superman, Wonder Woman, Spiderman, X-men, Aquaman and more. Enjoy!  Rob

From the greatest superhero fare and new kid’s stories to out-of-this-world science fiction tales, it’s a great time to discover comic books with the Gold and Silver titles available for Free Comic Book Day 2013!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
