And so it begins.

Don’t forget Twomorrows is also offering a free sample of one of their magazines for FCBD. (I picked Back Issue #3.)

Reviews of the free comics may be found at pal Dorian’s site and at Comics Worth Reading (1, 2, 3).

My picks: you need to get Owly (cuter than a cute thing that’s cute…look at last year’s Owly FCBD book for a sample), the Bongo freebie (a bit fanboy-humorish but the Comic Book Guy story is good for a larf), Preposterous Voyages of Ironhide Tom (silly and amusing), and Donald Duck (which contains one of my all-time favorite Don Rosa shorts).

Picks to miss: I think next year we can safely skip whatever it is that Wizard plans on offering.

Anyway, good luck to all of you folks out there, on either side of the counter. I’ll report back and let you know how it went at our store.

Additional linkage:

“Holy free comics, Batman!”

“Shazam! It’s free comics day today”

“Literacy campaign targets comic readers”

“…Educators say [comic books] can provide the same function as other children’s books — acting as a gateway to more advanced reading and thought.”

See? It’s educational, too!
