Saturday the fifth of May - it's not just for whackin' pinatas this year. It's also the first Saturday in May, which means it's Free Comic Book Day! Check the site for your nearest participating comic shop.
A perfect time to catch up on all the characters in The Avengers, no? You do realize the movie is a compilation of the last four superhero movies produced in the last year, all based on comic book characters...?
Meanwhile, today badly punning geeksters everywhere acknowledge - it's Star Wars Day! ... May the Fourth be with you!
Okay, okay, you can stop beating your head against the keyboard. I know the pun was bad... I can't take it back, though. Star Wars remains one of the deepest, most common roots of an 80's American childhood -- often parodied, re-interpretated, and re-watched. The latest incarnation of the epic series is just way, way too cute. From the ever-fabulous Chronicle Books comes DARTH VADER AND SON, by humorist, father, and cartoonist Jeffrey Brown. Now you can imagine the phrase, "Luke... I am your father," as the exasperated reminder from a parent about who's boss.
A perfect Father's Day gift for the long-suffering Sith Lord parent in your life?
