My editor at Hogan’s Alley, the magazine of the cartoon arts, recently posted this:

You’ve no doubt had this Saturday circled on your calendar for some time: This Saturday, May 6, is Free Comic Book Day. Send us an e-mail ( ON THAT DATE with your mailing address, and we’ll send you a FREE issue of Hogan’s Alley! No obligations, no strings attached; the only thing it will cost you is several hours as you enjoy the issue. (This offer is valid for all U.S. residents, whether you’re a current subscriber or not.) You know the drill–there’s only one condition: We must receive your e-mail request on Free Comic Book Day (May 6), not the day before or the day after. (Before and after that date, any requests for freebies will receive only scorn and derision.) Feel free to pass this offer along to anyone you know who might enjoy Hogan’s Alley!

Well, today is that day! I don’t know which issue you’ll get, but odds are good it will have something by me in it, as well as lots of other fascinating stuff.
