I just made a similar post on my primary art blog, but stated there that I’d have more details here, where they rightfully belong, at the official Jed The Flying Head web presence. All things considered, Jed is also available at his official website, www.jedtheflyinghead.com, as well as at a secondary blog site, but the tumblr site is so much easier to update when legitimate news is in the offing. And this is most certainly news, so heads up:
Some of you may recall that last year, I had made made available a Jed The Flying Head Free Comic Book Day Extravaganza. This was met with a fairly modest reception from the viewing/reading/downloading public, or at least, it seemed to be, based off the amount of feedback I got on it, which was none. None at all. That selfsame Extravaganza may still be available for download to the canny user who has time enough to scroll through the archives of this blog, and you’re welcome to it. It was free then, and it’s free now, but that’s not what I came here to talk about.
This year, I am embarking on a similar endeavor. The above image is a rough page that I will be taking to clean up for the 2014 Jed The Flying Head Free Comic Book Day Extravaganza. I should state here if nowhere else that I am in no way affiliated with the Free Comic Book Day organization, however, I do stand fully behind what they are about and applaud their efforts to bring free, sequential art entertainment to the masses on the first Saturday of May every year. This will be my 5th year celebrating what is to me a national holiday, and, as in years past, I can think of no better place to celebrate than Ryan’s Comics, in Murrieta, CA.
I will of course be posting more as things develop, both about the new comic I will be releasing, and events and other stuff related to FCBD. At present, I am working on some short JTFH adventures that I can have ready for inclusion, and am inviting local artists and friends of mine to submit work—under the pretense that this will be a good portfolio piece for them—for this potentially goodest of good causes.
I have waxed on here long enough for now, but please stay tuned. And if you’re not inclined to do that, at least create a calendar event, put a note on your refrigerator, or ask Siri to remind you to check back here on Saturday, May 3rd, because there’s going to be something here for you. It’s going to be big, it’s going to be awesome, and best of all, it’s going to be free.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
