Hosted by Kris Bather and Mladen Luketin from Western Australia, ES is a weekly podcast filled with news, reviews and pop culture shenanigans. Kris (loyal superhero fan) and Mladen (manga, anime and indie defender) chat about their varying, and occasional overlapping, interests in the wonderful world of sequential art.

FCBD Today

Now in it’s eighth year, Free Comic Book Day is a world wide event that is pretty much explained in its title. There’s 48 different selected titles to choose from this year. The big boys such as DC, Marvel, Image and Dark Horse have their offerings, but so do the smaller publishers such as Top Shelf, Fantagraphics and Drawn and Quarterly. There really is something for everyone. To see the complete list and if a store near you is participating, go here.While you’re there you might like to pick up the $1 After Watchmen comics from DC too. With first issues of mature series such as Planetary and Transmetropolitan, it’s a good day to be a comic book newbie. These $1 specials are wittily advertised as featuring the first issue of the Trades and have ads for other similar DC series inside its pages. Head down to your LCS, bring a friend and maybe even make some new ones while you’re there!blackest_nighttopshelf
