Everyone here at the Empire Comics Lab is super excited about Free Comic Book Day, which will be Saturday, May 7, 2016. As you can probably tell, all of the editorial staff, writers and artists at the ECL love comic books. While we can’t wait to get our hands on all the awesome books that will be offered this year, we believe it is just as important to give as it is to receive. That is why Empire Comics Lab is proud to announce that we will be offering not one, but TWO free Cemetery Plots stories during this year’s Free Comic Book Weekend.
Our first story is a terror tale with a lot of a bite that will chill your blood. And that’s A-OK because the star of this story hates warm drinks. Cuddle up with someone you wouldn’t mind necking with for the vampire story, “Red Need,” with script by Lou Mougin, art by Andy “Shaggy” Korty and lettering by Brandon Bullock.
We also have a story about a door-to-door life insurance salesman who ends up visiting the wrong house. He had better hope his own policy is paid up after he encounters the devilish brood at this residence. Heed the warning signs! “No Solicitors” is a killer prose story by Larry Underwood, aka Dr. Gangrene, with illustrations by Andy “Shaggy” Korty.
Both stories will be available as free downloads at the Empire Comics Lab website at http://empirecomicslab.com/ starting at midnight on Friday, May 6, 2016 and throughout the weekend. Also, as an incentive to get our friends, families and fans to spread the word, we will be holding a special contest throughout the weekend.
If you share the link to our Free Comic Book Day offerings on Facebook and tag Cemetery Plots editor Dan Johnson in the post, you will be entered into a special drawing to have your name featured on one of three tombstones in Cemetery Plots #3. Along with your Graveyard Shout-Out, you will also get a complimentary copy of the issue featuring your tombstone. This is normally a $15 value, but this is your chance to win this honor for FREE. And what the heck, Dan will even sign your comic book. But remember, you must post our link during Free Comic Book Weekend and you must tag Dan Johnson in the post to be eligible for the drawing.
