Free Comic Book Day
at Skokie Public Library!
On Free Comic Book Day, Skokie Public Library gives away free comics and offers fun programs!
On Free Comic Book Day, May 6, 2006, free comic books were distributed in this one day-partnership with Comix Revolution.
Free comics, compliments of Comix Revolution, included X-Men Runaways, Ultimate X-Men, Archie's 65th Birthday Bash!, Betty and Veronica, Simpson's Bongo Comics Free-For-All, Batman Adventures, Justice League Unlimited, Justice League Adventures, Uncle Scrooge, Donald Duck, Owlly, Amelia Rules!, Spider-Man, Superman/Batman, and Star Wars. A sampling of comics, manga, and and graphic novels that are free everyday (with a library card) was displayed.
Freelance comic book artist Addie Afable facilitated the Iron Artist Competition. While competing for the title of Iron Artist, contestants were asked to draw things like evil toasters, soccer-playing hamsters, and Inu Yasha, while being given silly commands to distract them from creating their masterpieces. The contest was done in the spirit of fun and entertainment and everyone, including the audience, had a good time! Prizes for the winners were from Anime Central and Artistic Dragon Studios.
