Free Comic Book Day, 2014!

Oh Joy! Our brand new FREE COMIC BOOK DAY issue is in! This lil' beaut features an excerpt from Shigeru Mizuki's second volume of Showa: A History of Japan, covering the period from 1939 to 1944.


And talk about coincidence, it's Mizuki's 92nd birthday today! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIZUKI! Look at that smile, what a cutie!


Now don't go thinking Showa is anything like a boring ol' history textbook, oh no! With compassion and wit, Mizuki gives us a first hand account of this turbulent time, recounting his own experiences from when he was drafted into the army as a young (and sometimes lazy) teen. Never lazy when it comes to food though! Here he is trying to open up a can of delicious pineapple using his thumb:



And getting a final farewell from friends and family:


Mark your calendars, Free Comic Book Day is on Saturday, May 3rd. In the meantime, why not reminisce a little by looking back at last year's FCBD extravaganza! Nothing better than hyper kids getting their grubby little hands on free comics and snacks, right?
