i am going to start this post out the same way i'm going to finish it; with the october country logo and a reminder that i will be at wonderful october country comics

in beautiful new paltz ny tomorrow from 1 to 3, hanging out, chatting, and signing comics with my good friend and comics legend, the lovely and talented writer/artist FRED HEMBECK for...

free comic book day is a world-wide phenomenon that has been going on now for about 9 years now and endeavors to promote comic book reading as well as introduce a wider audience to this unique and creative artform. comics are fun; read some everyday!
(although, after nine years, maybe it's time we got a snazzier logo, huh...?)

fred hembeck is a legendary cartoonist and satirist, a champion volleyballer and he has a tremendous singing voice. best known for his enormous love of comics and his fantastic parodies, fred is responsible for such romps as fred hembeck destroys the marvel universe and the fantastic four roast, as well as his own clever and insightful interviews with a pantheon of four-color characters in his own dateline:hembeck, abbot and costello meet hembeck, bah, hembeck!, and the hembeck files!
fred is awesome!

for those of you who might not know, fred looks like this...

I cannot make it to see you and Fred, so the next best thing will be heading down to Friendly Neighborhood Comics in Bellingham, MA to see the other half of the 'Haps creative team.

Have a great time, tomorrow, for Asgard!
