Aw Yeah Comics is a comic shop based in Skokie Illinois that is owned by the Tiny Titans and Superman Family Adventures duo of Art Baltazar and Franco, along with the amazing Marc Hammond. A Facebook Page has just gone live (which can be found HERE) and their statement reads...
"Art, Franco, and Aw Yeah Comics are inviting any other comic store or
library around the world to join in on this event, as well as any
creator. Choose to become a venue, provide the basic supplies, and ask
creators to come and teach. Our goal is for this event to become
widespread and yearly, much in the same way Free Comic Book Day is, and
to get as many young people involved and enthusiastic about comics as we
possible can. A website, which will list participating venues and
creators, will be ready next week. In the meantime, if you would like to
be a host venue, have any questions or ideas, please feel free to
e-mail us at email@example.com."
I think it goes without saying that this is a tremendous idea and I love it. This needs to catch on in a major way and I'm hoping it gets your support.
