Hey Kids! Free Dinosaurs!

May 7th is Free Comic Book Day. Your local participating Comic Shop will be giving away free sample comics from a number of publishers. One that will be of interest to readers of the Palaeoblog will be this:

The full edition of “BONE SHARPS, COWBOYS, AND THUNDER LIZARDS”, a 160 page original graphic novel about the most famous feud in fossil history -- The Marsh & Cope War -- featuring a cover by Mark Schultz (Xenozoic Tales) will be out this Fall...but if you head to a comic book store for Free Comic Book Day on May 7, you'll be able to pick up the special preview!.

Sharp-eyed readers will notice that that's Charles Knight on the cover creating one of his most famous dinosaur paintings.

Note that this is NOT the new Mark Schultz art book that I mentioned in a previous post -- info on that will be posted in a few days. But with the chance to pick up a FREE copy of the this nifty new book with Mark’s great cover coming up in only a few days I did not want anyone to miss the chance to grab one.
