This Saturday is Free Comic Book Day in Ireland. Free Comic Book Day started in the USA in 2002, and as the name implies, is a day when participating retailers hand out copies of comic books to their customers for free.
Here is the list of shops involved in Irish Free Comic Book Day:
- Easons book shop in Heuston Station
- Forbidden Planet in both Dublin and Belfast
- Other Realms in Cork
- Sub-City Comics in both Dublin and Galway
- The Winding Stair in Dublin
There will be five titles available:
- In Dublin City – preview
- Formation 7 – preview
- Freak Show, issue #1 – full copy
- Róisín Dubh – preview
- Vampire Apocalypse – preview
Each person can get one copy of the free titles available – on a first-come first-served basis of course! So drop into one of these fine establishment this Saturday and find out what’s happening in the Irish comic book scene.
I finished the final draft of the last chapter of Róisin Dubh this week, and while I’m sure I’ll be doing some further polishing, it was kind of sad to come of the end of the first volume. I’ve had a lot of fun with the project. Hopefully I’ll be taking Róisín on more adventures in the future.
