Remember: Unseen Peanuts tomorrow

Unseen Peanuts coverJust a reminder that tomorrow (Saturday, May 5th) is Free Comic Book Day. The press has really been picking up on Unseen Peanuts, so while there are a lot of copies of it out there, many folks will be looking for it. So don’t dally! (And don’t overlook the other freebies to be had, and the fine things to be purchased in the shop. There’s lots of good things going on in comics these days.)
