Earlier this week, I made a note to myself to try to remember to get over to one of my local shops in SF today and get free comics. WHOOPS. It's basically over now, but today was the annual Free Comic Book Day-- An event that gives publishers a chance to preview their new books, and gives retailers an event for bringing in new readers from the community and turning them on to comics and manga.
If you are a reader of Same Hat and remembered to check it out, you hopefully chose Drawn & Quarterly's Gekiga! sampler. It features previews of their third Yoshihiro Tatsumi collection, Goodbye, and Seiichi Hayashi's masterpiece, Red Colored Elegy. Both of these MUST READ books will be coming out this July.
So, um.... does anyone have an extra copy?
