This is one my my favourite days of the year. My son and I get up, have a nice healthy breakfast and then go on a comic store crawl. Where I live, there’s only four, but they’re also relatively close to each other, like everything else here. Some years the public library plays along, and it’s (not surprisingly) also close to everything.
Since this is the first year Shatterday Comics has had a chance to get in on the fun, we’ve put together a 31 page sampler comic featuring pages from 3 of our titles: The Everlasting Return of mR mILDEW by L. E. Mullin; XD: Exit Demigods by Johanne Light and 31 Ghosts by Gavin de Lint. Before you get out there and scour your local comic book shops, start free comic book day off digitally. Click the cover to download the PDF. (If you have an iPad, I’d recommend opening it up in iBooks – it looks SWEET)

As part of the task of rebuilding Shatterday, We also need to get all of our Shattercast subscribers over to our new servers. Now, as geeky as I am, most of that geek skill is used for remembering comic trivia and not learning how to work ‘the internet’. I think I’ve figured it out. If this brief podcast makes it to your iTunes, then this is a happy day. If not, then somewhere on the Canadian Prairies a man will be swearing kicking things.
