Cannon Cove, Oregon has nothing going for it except that once upon a time, long ago, a movie that was destined to become a kids’ cult classic was filmed there. You might have heard of it: The Gloomies*. You know that Gloomies never say die, right? Too bad the town never lived by that motto.

In Misfit City #1 we watch as local kids find a real adventure in their little hometown.

Comics For Free Comic Book Day 2017

Free Comic Book Day banner

Well, folks, it is that time again. It’s time for Free Comic Book Day! On May 6, 2017, comic and book shops across the known ‘verse will offer up exclusive comics to patrons for free. But it’s not just about dropping in and grabbing free loot and bailing. No, friends, this is the day you need to get out and show your appreciation for these stores. Because while the comics are free to you, they are not free to the shopkeepers. They buy those for distribution as a way of thanking us for our business. And what better way to pay it forward is there than to drop a few bucks in their businesses? I’ll leave it to you and your conscience, but know that what you do on FCBD will affect what the shops are able to do in the future. My local comic shop closed, certainly you would not want the same fate for yours, would you? Click here to find a participating comic shop near you!

But all the peer pressure aside, let us take a look at what the day will bring us in the way of comics. But remember, every shop may not have every title.

Well, it is about time. I am oh so happy to see a book that chronicles the amazing female comic characters that readers have loved for decades.

You might have noticed that there have been several comic hero chronicles of late; I have reviewed a couple of them already. There was one that detailed the Regrettable Superheroes and another that explored the just as Regrettable Super Villains. In The Spectacular Sisterhood of Superwomen: Awesome Female Characters From Comic Book History it’s all about the ladies who have influenced comics throughout history.

So join me as we dig into what’s going on in this jewel of a book.

Sand + Bone
Written by J.T. Krul
Illustrated by Andrea Mutti
Adaptive Studios
Release Date: April 18th, 2017
Offered exclusively at Barnes and Noble

Sean Hitcher is suffering, inside and out. Just home from Iraq, there is no peace from his torment, as every time he closes his eyes he is transported back to the real hell on Earth. Addicted to drugs, and willing to do anything (except counseling) to silence his inner demons, he runs into his former love at the pharmacy. She seems very worried and reveals her divorce and the new love of her life – her son. He takes off, because the drugs he can’t get are the only thing keeping the nightmares at bay, plus he seems to want to get away from her concern.

This is the setup for Sand + Bone written by J.T. Krul, and illustrated by Andrea Mutti.
