Free Comic Book Day Again

May 2nd is Free Comic Book Day and there are about 50 books to collect this year.  It's amazing.

The momentum behind this day gets bigger every year.  Here are some of the comics that I will be checking out.

This is the one that I am most excited about.  It contains comics from both Kate Beaton and Jillian Tamaki.

Beaton's comics are related to her upcoming book Step Aside, Pops!  So it could be about history, literature or  something random.  She's wonderful and I cannot wait for this or her new book.

Tamaki will be showcasing her webcomic SuperMutant Magic Academy, which she has been working on since 2010.  A collected edition of the comics in that series will be released April 28, 2015.  It features stories about students at a school for mutants and witches and addresses the more emotional and human aspects of their lives.  It doesn't focus on the powers or spells of the characters.

*****Good for all ages.

The All-New and All-Different Avengers

What drew me to this comic was the team members: Sam Wilson as Captain America, the new Thor, Vision, Nova, Kamala Khan as Ms. Marvel, Iron Man, and Miles Morales as Spider-Man.

What a team!  You got a mix of the experienced and the inexperienced here.  You also have characters that we're still learning about like the new Thor.

***** E for everyone.

This one is really cool because it collects so much.

It features 10 little stories from 10 different titles including: Lumberjanes by Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis and Shannon Watters; Adventure Time with Fiona and Cake by Jen Wang and Britt Wilson; Garfield; Regular Show and even a story inspired by Jim Henson's Labyrinth.

***** Perfect for all ages.

This is also a comic made up of other little comics presenting a bunch of great artists and writers in the world of comics today.

Really excited for these stories:
The Boss by Mariko Tamaki & Gillian Goerz
Superhero Girl: The Death of Kevin by Faith Erin Hicks
Once Upon a Pony by Svetlana Chmakova

*****Recommended for Teens
