Robert Kirkman will be making a 5 city grand tour May 4th (free comic book day) through the 6th.
“For Kirkman’s first new creator-owned series in four years, we’re doing something big,” says Director of Marketing Mark Haven Britt. “You get an awesome new FREE comic, you get to meet Robert in person, AND you get to meet him when he’s delirious from sleep deprivation and cross country flights! Come on by! It’s gonna be a hoot!”
This is great news for me, I’m a huge Robert Kirkman fan… time to dork it up!

For those who don’t know about Kirkman’s new book The Astounding Wolf-Man, here’s the official word:
The Astounding Wolf-Man chronicles the life of workaholic CEO Gary Hampton. While on a rare family vacation, he’s bitten by a werewolf. Cursed to live his nights as a monster, Gary works to use these evil powers for the greater good. The story is part superhero, part horror and a whole lot of fun.
