Happy New Year!

2012 is almost over. Time is just flying by.

This year I hit the big three o, changed jobs, conquered the city, lost a loyal companion and made new friends. It was a year of ups and downs. Mostly ups, I can't complain. Life is ridiculous in a grand, beautiful and humorous way. I hope I still see the world the same way or better come next year. Here's hoping 2013 brings everyone more ups and less downs!

Wishing you a safe and happy new year!

May the 4th be with you.

Today is Star Wars Day, the Avengers Movie is out, tomorrow is Free Comic Book Day and the Super Moon will be back. It is a good weekend to be a geek.

While the extent of my Star Wars Day celebration consists of posting a youTube video of a Robot Chicken Star Wars clip on Facebook, I always have plans for Free Comic Book Day. This year I'll be visiting a comic shop I've never been to. Followed by a viewing of the Avengers movie and hopefully a photo shoot of the Super Moon. I can't wait!

For Free Comic Book Day, which occurs on the first Saturday every May, participating comic shops give free comics to anyone who visits their store and often promote other merchandise, sales and discounts.

Publishers specifically create books to be given away. I am always impressed with the selection of free titles. There really is something for everyone. Here are the previews for tomorrow's free books:

If you're reading this I hope you choose to participate. Don't be afraid to take the kids. I used to love to give extra books to my co-workers to take home to their kids!

Check out the Free Comic Book Day website to find a participating store near you.
