Free Comic Book Day is an annual event at comic shops the planet over. And here at the Isotope our FCBD celebrations are truly the stuff of legend, feast your eyes! We will once again be featuring San Francisco’s most glorious and massive smorgasboard of absolutely free comic reads for comic lovin’ kids of all ages!
And we’re proud to announce our featured comic creator special guest star, Aidan Hernacki!
A true sequential art phenom at 11 years old, Aidan’s celebrated ONION BROS comic saw it’s debut here at the Isotope last year with THE ONION BROS: ADVENTURES IN SPACE, a hilarious action adventure romp, which has been endorsed by none other than Tom Hiddleston (yep, LOKI) himself. For 2014 Aidan is bringing new printings and also debuting his latest self-published opus for our Free Comic Book Day masses ONION BROS: VAMPIRE HUNTERS!
Like last year Aidan will be doing free sketches and also making his one of a kind original art production pages available for those of us with fine taste in originals & who want to pick up some of work before he gets too famous. As always, Isotope has a strict policy of never taking a cut of our featured creator’s finances during our events, no matter who they may be… so any money you spend on Aidan’s comics and original artwork will go straight into his pocket where it belongs.
The day-long celebration also features San Francisco’s very own DJ BEARZBUB, spinning his favorite blend of extra-exotical b-sides, booty shaking nöyze, and rare, rare beats to keep your Free Comic Day shopping grooving!
And because Free Comic Book Day has just gotten *so* busy here at the Isotope over the last few years we’ve actually had to bring in some additional help. This year, aside from myself and Josh, we are also going to be featuring some extra ordinary “security” to make sure everything is running smoothly (bring your kids and your cameras!) and we will also have a new special “shop boy” to help run the register. We’re very excited to get to introduce you! Keep your eyes on our Twitter accounts and Instagram for more details on our “shop boy” and “security” staffers on the day of the event.
With such a great day lined up for all of you, one parting thought about what makes FCBD so special…
We do indeed continue to have the most generous, high-stakes, no-limit, can’t-find-anywhere-else explosion of free reads in SF but we do ask that you keep in mind that here at the Isotope we believe Free Comic Book Day is all about the kids, and even the mighty Isotope’s supplies are limited, so before you over-indulge yourselves, remember… every free comic you scoop up is one the kids can’t. So please be nice to the kiddos. Thank you kindly!
