As of today we officially have a Buy Indie Comics Day mailing list! Why is this a big deal? Throughout the years we've been able to reach our audience but they either forget about BICD until the day of the (event or the day after) or they forget altogether. We believe it's because we're not in the public's eye like, let's say Free Comics Book Day nor we have the financial backing of FCBD; but what we lack financially we make up for heart and enthusiasm. But we can't do this on our own, trust me we've tried. Hence we've created a newsletter, not only to inform all of you about any announcements but also to remind you on a regular basis that we're still here, that we're still working on this initiative and that we still need your help.

I know it's been one month since Free Comic Book Day but as you know life gets in the way and here we are. I have to say this was, by far; the best Free Comic Book Day I've ever been a part of as a fan or as a professional comic book artist. The venue was great (it's my local comic book shop!), the staff was attentive, kind and on point with everything, there was a nice flow of people coming in and out of the shop without it getting too overwhelming and it was just a fun day. Did I mention they had free cake for anyone in attendance? Well they did!
Besides myself there were other talented people in attendance like my Avandrus Theory colleague Brian Lacy as well as Cosplayer extraordinaire Magic Mo amongst others. Everyone seemed genuinely happy to be there, people who didn't knew each other before where engaging in conversations and connections were being made; it was great to be a part of it!
