I confess, when I’m talking a party of kids round London’s comic shops for Free Comic Book Day tomorrow, I will be keeping an eye on one specific publication. Bleeding Cool Magazine, with its Free Comic Book Day special edition. Including, and I’m expecting this will annoy and delight in equal measures, a Free Comic Book Day price guide, looking at past FCBD publications that are now worth money.
But I’ve also written a list of comics that could change your life, and great comics that not enough people recommend, from Arsenic Lullaby to Longshot Comics, as well as ways to get them. So, you know, swings and roundabouts.
I do hope you enjoy. And if not? Hey, it’s free.
Oh and for this year’s speculatory top tip? A draw between Viz’ Ugly Dolls, the Dark Horse Killjoys flipbook and the Kaboom special featuring the first Regular Show comic…
