Holy shit, Batman, Saturday is FREE comic book day all over the WORLD (mostly Canada and the US, Euro suckas)! Free?! Go to your favorite local comic shop and snap something up, first come first serve. Most publishers print special issues with a variety of original (and reprinted) shorts from their various tittles, while some stores hand out gift bags of popular titles or surplus back issues. All you arty people... go on, TRY IT!

Saturday May 3: My pal Gabe Soria just moved back to New Orleans AND his brand new graphic novel Life Sucks, co-written by Jessica Abel and drawn by Warren Pleece, just came out. Tomorrow, 2PM at More Fun Comics in New Orleans, Gabe will be signing copies of Life Sucks. You know what's awesome about New Orleans: it's free comic book day will have beer and live music. Who else can say that?! More Fun Comics 8200 Oak St, New Orleans, 504.865.1800

Gabe is in New Orleans, and his story is about Vampires. But HELL NO, it aint nothing like Ann Rice
