Action Packed Weekend Starts TONIGHT!

Tonight is the first day of the NFL Draft. The 49ers look to replace Patrick Willis, Chris Borland, Frank Gore, Mike Iupati, and potentially Justin Smith. I hope they just take the best player available.

Friday, we will be making something in the afternoon for a very special student at Ruskin.


What IS Free Comic Book Day?

Find participating stores using this Store Locator link:

A nearby store I would recommend is Black Cat comics in Milpitas off Calaveras.

One store I would strongly recommend is Illusive Comics in Santa Clara on El Camino Real.
Gene Yang, artist for the Avatar series as well as his own award-winning Boxers and Saints comics about the Boxer Rebellion in China, will be there!

Another store - and one of my favorites - I would highly recommend is Lee's Comics in Mountain View off Rengstorff and the 101.

"In addition there will be a store-wide sale, 25¢ comics, a free drawing to win a complete set of this year's free comics (drawing is at 11:00 am, must be present to win, and additional drawing will be held after hours, need not be present.) In the morning, Mountain View will be hosting Star Wars cosplayers from the 501st Legion. Come in costume to either store if the mood strikes."

HEY! Is that Mr. Amutan standing in line waiting to get Simpsons' illustrator Bill Morrison's sketch and autograph?
 It is!

Here's what some stores may be offering (they actually pay for these comics to give them away!):

Sunday, ToysRUs will be hosting their "May the Fourth" Star Wars building event. Can you say, "Wookie gunship"? Oh man. That's awesome.
