I’m sure some of you know that tomorrow is free comic book day. Last year my husband and I went to our local Hastings to see what we could grab for free. Unfortunately they only had comics I don’t read. I went in hopes of finding Fables or perhaps Marvel Zombies and they had children’s comics. Needless to say I was a little disappointed.

I wish we had at least one true comic book shop here. But my husband is probably glad we don’t, otherwise I would spend almost all of my free time there.
So, if you feel the urge to look for a new comic tomorrow, this site has a listing of comic book stores near you.

If you don’t happen to find a comic that appeals to you then you can always try finding one in the plethora of web comics. Two of my favorites are The Dreamer and Lovelace and Babbage (I’ll post more about this comic some time soon).

I hope you enjoy these great comics!

Free Web Comic April 14, 2011

I have been in love with this web comic, The Dreamer, for about a year now. I came across a copy of it at Hastings in the used comic book section.

When I got home that afternoon I cracked open the cover and was immediately entranced with the description of the Revolutionary War as told by Lora Innes. This is not your ordinary web comic, it is something much more.

I devoured the first graphic novel and had to know what happened after it ended. So I followed the recommendation to go to the web site and found that there was quite a bit more to the story that I originally anticipated. This pleasant surprise quickly turned to anguish as I realized that I would have to wait week-by-week for more installments of this fascinating story. Although I have to wait for updates I am still enthralled by the story and the art and this seems like a small price to pay for the ability to read this amazing comic for free.

Here are a few pages from the series:

I am so in love with this series that I am eagerly awaiting the next set of issues to be printed. Ms. Innes said that volume 2 should come out some time soon!

As always, I am eagerly awaiting the next updates.
