May 7th is Free Comic Book Day! If you head into a participating comic shop on Saturday, you’ll be able to pick up all sorts of free goodies. Red 5 Comics is participating in this event by publishing Atomic Robo & Friends, our fourth annual issue. Inside you’ll find an all-new Atomic Robo adventure featuring a rematch with his most insane nemesis, Dr. Dinosaur:
When ATOMIC ROBO agrees to guest-judge the national science fair, it draws a lot of attention… including the evil DR. DINOSAUR. When the explosions fly, Robo forgets the most important rule of all – never work with children. Plus, previews of 2011 adventures of Red 5 favorites and new faces.
Also included is an excerpt from our new series Moon Girl which actually hits stores today!
In the pulp New York of the 1950’s, Moon Girl looks to a life beyond her role as champion of the counter-culture and social revolution. However, she is forced back in to action when fanatics, inspired by her adventures, begin enforcing their own brand of justice. It’s “Mad Men meets The Dark Knight” in this beautifully painted series featured in Red 5 Comics Free Comic Book Day 2011 issue.
Finally, our FCBD issue includes a sneak preview of Foster Broussard: Demons of the Gold Rush #1:
In 1849, sauve British con-man Foster Broussard comes to San Francisco hoping to find his fortune and save his neck in the California gold rush. His multi-layer grift spins out of control as stumbles between an American Industrialist and an ancient evil spirit held in check by a Native American tribe.
