Free Sample Comics!:
Thanks to Johanna Draper Carlson at Comics Worth Reading, I discovered that DC has made the
First Issues of Preacher, Fables, 100 Bullets, Y The Last Man and Sandman available to those of you who want to sample the books before diving into the trade.
This is terrific, and if you've never read Fables (my favorite monthly book), you must go and look HERE. It's free, all it costs is a few minutes of your time, and I'd be very surprised if you didn't find a new, much beloved comic out of the time invested.
Oh, and the Y PDF has the interesting text piece on the social effects of the plague that was sadly missing from the collected editions.
