    Feb 10, 2010, 10:13 PM - Free Comic Book Day Appearance #1

    Hey there everyone. I was wondering if anyone in the Houston area would be interested in making an appearance for Free Comic Book Day at the comic shop I run. In case anyone is not familiar with the event I'll supply a little info. Free Comic Book Day is an annual event to celebrate comics in general but more importantly to help promote literacy in children. It's not always easy to get kids to read but if you put a comic in their hands maybe they'll be encouraged to do a little more of that. Let's face it, anything that promotes reading is a good thing.
    We'll be providing free food (probably hot dogs) and drinks for anyone who shows up in costume. Every year has seen a great turnout and I'm sure this year will be just as great. The event takes place on the first Saturday in May. Anyone interested just a reply and I'd be happy to provode more info. Not sure if you can see my personal email in my profile but if so feel free to contact me that way also. Thanks for your time everyone and here's hoping some of youcan make it.

    I'd totally be there, but sadly, my armor must wait until income tax comes in. Lame.

    We've got some Mandalorian Mercs members around the Huntsville and Houston area that might be able to make it.

    Fill out the form at the link below and we'll make sure it gets to them, and hopefully we can give you a hand.

    Just a quick correction. Apparently I can not read a calendar properly. Free Comic Book Day is actually on Saturday May 1st, not the 2nd as I originally posted. Sorry for the screw up. Let the chastisement commence.
