FCBM Day 11

It's day eleven of the YACB Free Comic Book Month!

Today's selected entry comes from Philip Flores. Philip writes seeking comics not for himself, but for his fiance: "I already get many more comics than I need. But I have been introducing my fiancee to the world of comics beyond Sandman. I've been having a fair amount of success, but I always welcome more suggestions. Five comics that she has particularly enjoyed are:"

1. PS238
2. Tales of the Beanworld
3. Hellboy
4. Global Frequency
5. Ultimate Spider-Man

For Philip's fiance I'll be sending the first two issues of Dark Horse's manga anthology Super Manga Blast. This will allow her to sample several manga series: Oh My Goddess, 3x3 Eyes, What's Michael?, Shadow Star, and Seraphic Feather.

Like all the selected entries, Philip will also receive a copy of the 32-page Free Comic Book Day Preview Edition of Bone Sharps, Cowboys, and Thunder Lizards by Jim Ottaviani & Big Time Attic (Zander Cannon, Kevin Cannon and Shad Petosky).

The comics should be in the mail by the end of the week. Enjoy!

There's still time to send in your entry for the YACB Free Comic Book Month; details are here.

Thanks! I hope she'll enjoy them. I haven't shown her much manga yet, but What's Michael? has always been on the list of things to share with her.

On a personal level, I've really enjoyed Ottovani's previous work and am looking forward to his next graphic novel about science.

Oops. You'd think that if I enjoyed the man's work so much I'd get his name right.
