An interview with John Barber on IDW’s Transformers

FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is TOMORROW!!

FREE COMIC BOOKS! FRREEEEE!!

It’s that time of the year once again, like a second Easter or at least a third Christmas, comic shops everywhere are stacking their racks with a smörgåsbord of comics free to anyone interested in one of America’s greatest creations. Since its creation in May of 2002 Free Comic Book Day (FBCD) has brought the entire industry together with special editions issues of comics with the intent of bringing in new readers, as well as giving a special thanks to the current readers with something extra in their weekly stacks. Each year the event brings more and more people to brick and mortar shops and recently even to the newly-growing world of digital comics.

This year the geeky holiday coincides with the release of Marvel Studio’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, and previous FCBDs have celebrated the release of other comic book films like Spider-man, Iron Man, and the first Avengers film, but oddly never a DC film. Within recent years the major publications have also been using the day to help promote their next big event, like this year’s Secret Wars and 2012’s AvX.

Been curious about this whole Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse thing? Been a fan of Ben Templesmith’s art? Been following him on Gotham by Midnight? Been wanting to jump into a very strange world of worm-animated corpses, clockwork companions, bad-ass bodyguard women and sentient tattoos? Well, you’re in luck. IDW has just released Wormwood, Gentleman Corpse: The First Few Pints.

This oversized hardcover collects Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse #0-7, Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse One-Shot, Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse: Calamari Rising #1-4, and Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse: Last Call, as well as some special Art of Wormwood features. I have now typed the word “Wormwood” so many times it has ceased to have meaning. But I’ll still be paying real dollars for this book. Please see below for preview images from Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse: The First Few Pints.
