Finally, the press release for Free Comic Book Day 2010 has hit the web and begun it’s circulation. This year it seems like they are really pulling out some interesting stuff, taking a lot of heavy cues from the inherent success of last year. While last year we got a lot of great things (including a reprint of the first ever Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic!), this year looks to be a great year for bringing in new readers, with great things from all involved parties.
Oh, and don’t forget our yearly Atomic Robo! Can I get a “yeah” in the house? Yeah!
For the press release, jump behind the cut. Make sure you start asking your comic book people to hold you your books now, because if what I went through last year is any indication, this year may be even more difficult to get a hold of things.
