Show notes: In this episode Nicki and I hit the road to celebrate Free Comic Book Day 2022 around Memphis.
We stop at Comics & Collectibles, The Cellar, and 901 Comics East and get our free comics while picking up our hold box comics, doing some additional shopping, and chatting with friends.
We talk with local comic creators Dale Martin, Brad and Skoot Starnes, Matt Bowers, Gabe DeRanzo, and Janet and Martheus Antone Wade about their current and upcoming projects such as The Dragon Templar, Fathom, Memphis, Stoned Ninja, Shinobi: Ninja Princess and Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa comics. (Sorry for some of the poor audio quality- I explain the cause in this episode.)
We also caught Doctor Strange And The Multiverse Of Madness and give some non-spoiler thoughts on this latest Marvel movie.
While at 901 Comics we got some sad news news of the passing of legendary comic creator George Pérez. Nicki and I discuss our George encounters and memories of him. He was not only a great creator of comics, but a fan and cheerleader of the fandom- and a super sweet guy.
Free Comic Book Day happens on the first Saturday in May each year. Be sure to contact your local comic shop (or library) to see if they participate in FCBD.
Stay well, stay tooned, and keep drawing funny!
