FCBM Day 5

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

Today's entry comes from Mark Fossen. The five comics that mark listed are:

1. Planetary
2. Astro City
3. The Ultimates
4. Ultimate X-Men
5. The Authority

I'll be sending Mark ShockRockets #1, written by Astro City's Kurt Busiek & drawn by Stuart Immonen & Wade Von Grawbadger.

Mark also included a list for his 5-year-old daughter Cora, for whom he has recently introduced a few Super-Hero cartoons into her tv rotation. Cora likes Super Friends, Krypto, Teen Titans, and Justice League Unlimited, and likes to read the JLU comic and also Superman Adventures, particularly issue #21, which featured Supergirl ("she's read this so much, it's now missing the cover and is a ragged mess. The way comics should be.")

So I'll also be sending along for Cora a copy of Super Friends Special #1 from 1981, which reprinted two Super Friends stories by E. Nelson Bridwell & Ramona Fradon: "The Mystery of the Missing Monkey!" from Super Friends #19, and "Warhead Strikes at Gotham" feauring guest star Plastic Man from Super Friends #36.

And like all the selected entries, Mark will be receiving 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).

Mark's comics should be in the mail early next week. Enjoy!
