In addition to being Buy Indie Day (I'll be buying indie at Words Bookstore in Maplewood, NJ) it's also Free Comic Book Day! I'm thrilled to be able to give away Scott McCloud's Zot! on this auspicious day.
Long before manga took the American comics market by storm, Scott McCloud, author of Understanding Comics, combined the best ideas from manga, alternative comics, and superheroes into Zot!—a frenetic and innovative exploration of comics' potential that helped set the stage for McCloud's later groundbreaking theoretical work.
Zachary T. Paleozogt lives in "the far-flung future of 1965," a utopian Earth of world peace, robot butlers, and flying cars. Jenny Weaver lives in an imperfect world of disappointment and broken promises—the Earth we live in. Stepping across the portals to each other's worlds, Zot and Jenny's lives will never be the same again.
Now, for the first time since its original publication more than twenty years ago, every one of McCloud's pages from the black and white series has been collected in this must-have commemorative edition for aficionados to treasure and new fans to discover. Includes never-before-seen artwork and extensive commentary by Scott McCloud.
