quick Wednesday goodness…

because, as i’m sure you all know by now, Wednesday is comic book day.

so i’ve got two comic book things this week:

first, Iron Man opens Friday! but not really – it actually starts tomorrow. and yes, i’ve already got my ticket. directed by Jon Favreau and starring Robert Downey Jr., Terrence Howard, Jeff Bridges and Gwyneth Paltrow, the film has done well in early reviews. i really can’t wait.

and second, Saturday is Free Comic Book Day! held each year on the first Saturday in May, it’s a great chance to check out new books, shop for sale bargains, or even see if you might like the hobby at all. there’s a really impressive selection of freebie titles this year, and most comic shops have plans to do special stuff for the day. Captain’s Comics, for example, plans to have a couple artists visiting to do sketches, offer original art for sale and answer questions. even if your local shop doesn’t have celebrity guests, you ought to check it out; it’s a great day for anybody interested in comics to stick a toe in the water.

and now, back to studying for finals…

quote of the day:

“Every time a man raises his hand against his neighbour in the name of his faith, he renounces his faith!” – Superman, Action Comics #517
