Free Comic Book Day is this Saturday, and while we’re not offering a special FCBD publication like we have the last two years, we will be giving away Digital Editions of COMICS GO HOLLYWOOD and COMICS 101, our last two FCBD books. Actually, they’ve been available for free downloading for some time at our website: www.twomorrows.com, but Saturday is a perfect time to get ’em if you haven’t already.
But from Friday through Sunday, to celebrate FCBD, we’ll also be giving away a free Digital Edition of each of our current mags: ALTER EGO, BACK ISSUE!, THE JACK KIRBY COLLECTOR, DRAW!, and BRICKJOURNAL (our new mag for Lego enthusiasts), plus PDFs of our recently departed ROUGH STUFF and WRITE NOW!, which are still available as back issues. Digital Editions normally retail for $2.95-$3.95 per download, but are free over the three-day Free Comic Book Day weekend, to encourage more readers to try them out, and consider ordering them at their local comic book shop. You just have to add it to your shopping cart, and after you checkout (with no cost), you’ll get the link(s) for the ones you ordered.
The idea is for you to try them out, and if you like them, get your local retailer to add them to your pull list, or convince them to stock an extra copy of your favorites. If retailers sell an extra copy, we sell an extra copy, and more people discover what we’ve been up to for the last 15 (!) years. But if they don’t or won’t carry our stuff, you can always get it (in print or digital form) from our website.
And if our server is running slow (which has happened the last three years, due to the overwhelming demand on it), please be patient, especially if you’re ordering on Saturday. Don’t worry, they’ll still be there Sunday till midnight, and beyond if it looks like a lot of people got shut out by the web traffic.
Hope you enjoy the freebies!
