Note: I started writing this post about a week ago, but then I got my tonsils taken out and kind of forgot it, sorry. Here it is now, posted as originally written although slightly dated.
This past weekend was a busy time for me. It was graduation time at my alma mater and several of my close friends graduated. My fiancée and I are less than a month away from our wedding (Aw Yeah!) and now that school is out she’s headed home to start getting everything ready for the big day. I also went and saw The Avengers with a big group of friends and I absolute loved it. Why can’t DC get their act together and pull off something like this. Well, they did get one thing right and that was their offering for Free Comic Book Day this year. If you aren’t familiar with FCBD, it is a day, usually the first Saturday in May, where comic book publishers release special free books to entice readers to visit their local comic shop. In recent years the bigger comic companies have used FCBD to tease upcoming storyline or events, such as DC’s Blackest Night #0 a few years back. This year they have outdone themselves with The New 52 #1, a full length story by Geoff Johns with art by Jim Lee, Ivan Reis, Gene Ha, and Kenneth Rocafort. It doesn’t get much better than that.
