We're sure you're already aware of Saturday's Free Comic Book Day, which we listed in a Seven Days to Live section this week.
But in case the prospect of getting a free comic isn't enough, Matt Campbell, a comic book author from Colorado Springs, will be at Escape Velocity Comics (19 E. Bijou St., 578-8847) giving out 25 copies of the limited-edition signed and numbered first issue of his comic Mythica. Only 100 are in print.
Campbell will also be giving free art lessons during his time at the store‚ which only makes sense, too, considering Campbell also moonlights as a comic book art teacher at Bemis School of Art.
Mythica is a comic series set in World War I about a group of people given special abilities to fight the invasion of demonic forces. Campbell puts up a new page of the comic every Monday on his website mattcampbellart.com.
If your Saturday is already booked but you still want to meet Campbell, he'll also have a booth at Denver's Comic Con, June 15-17.
