Nemo Publishing Celebrates Free Comic Book Day

unnamedNemo Publishing announced today that they will be celebrating Free Comic Book Day on May 3 with Casablanca Comics! Maine comic legend Jay Piscopo (Sea Ghost, Capt’n Eli, Squigglevision, Moonstone Comics) will be on hand to sign books and do free sketches from Noon until 2pm. Free copies of Sea Ghost #1, Captain Midnight Special, and Commander X will be given away while supplies last. Casablanca Comics is located at 151 Middle Street, Portland, ME. Free Comic Book Day is a single day – the first Saturday in May each year – when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away Free Comic Book Day titles to anyone who comes into their stores.

Jay Piscopo commented “Free Comic Book Day is the Christmas of the pop culture world. Casablanca literally had thousands of fans come through and are great folks to work with. Attendees come in all shapes and sizes. From groups of friends to families come out and enjoy comics. Get away from screens, grab a friend, get some free comics and have some fun!”
