CBR's Guide to Free Comic Book Day 2016
If you were away from the Internet over the long holiday weekend, you missed out on ROBOT 6’s sixth-anniversary celebration: more than 60 interviews, announcements, exclusive previews and special features, spread over four days (and culminating with our contributors’ choices for their favorite comics of 2014).
Don’t worry, however. This being the Internet, all of that content is right at your fingertips — from Ed Brubaker discussing bringing Criminal to Image Comics to Dark Horse’s announcement of P. Craig Russell’s Murder Mysteries and Other Stories: Gallery Edition to the first look at Jessica Drew’s new costume debut in Spider-Woman #5.
Whether your tastes lie in superheroes, sci-fi and fantasy, crime or slice of life, there’s likely something for all readers among those 60 or so items.
Thank you to the dozens of creators, publishers and publicists who joined in the celebration, and to our readers for continuing to visit us.
The response this year from publishers and creators was so overwhelming, that we’ll be continuing our sixth-anniversary celebration through the weekend!
If you’ve missed any of our special content over the past two days, sit back and take a look at the exclusive previews and announcements, interviews and features, then be sure to join us again Saturday morning for even more.
And thanks once again to the participating publishers, creators and publicists, and to our readers.
Six years ago, we launched ROBOT 6 rather quietly, with our favorite comics of 2008, a list that included Kramer’s Ergot 7, Casanova, Bottomless Belly Button and Brubaker & Co.’s Captain America. Now, 16,752 posts later, the comic books, the comics industry and some of the bylines are different, but the blog marches on.
Some things never change, however: Each year we celebrate ROBOT 6’s anniversary with a takeover of the Comic Book Resources homepage. Beginning in, oh, 30 minutes, we’ll roll out exclusive previews and announcements, special features, and a lineup of interviews so extensive that the festivities will continue through Friday.
Thanks once again to CBR Executive Producer Jonah Weiland for handing us the keys for the next couple of days (and for bringing us on board in the first place), and to the creators, publishers, editors and publicity representatives for helping us to mark the occasion.
Thanks as well to the ROBOT 6 contributors and CBR staff for their hard work, and especially to our readers. Here’s to another year!
Five years, 14,230 posts, an Eisner nomination and a Harvey win ago, we launched ROBOT 6 at Comic Book Resources, and ever since then we’ve celebrated the anniversary with a takeover of the Comic Book Resources home page.
After CBR closes down this afternoon for New Year’s Eve, we’ll begin rolling out exclusive previews and announcements, special features, and a lineup of interviews so extensive that we’ll continue through New Year’s Day (and, if history is any indication, likely trickle over into Thursday).
