May 5th is Free Comic Book Day, and we continue to update the various offerings from publishers. Asylum Press is offering a free digital sampler called "Asylum Press Sampler Free Comic Book 2012" #1. Sure, not very creative, but you certainly get the idea. The Book will feature 8 pages from four upcoming titles: Trenchcoats, Cigarettes and Shotguns: Written by Chuck Brown, illustrated by Philipp Nuendorf. When the demonic mob murders the friend of a mysterious hit man named, Trypp; he begins to leave a path of death, destruction and blood to avenge her. But he also begins to embrace the darkness within his soul. Black Powder: a bloody frontier adventure, by Dwayne Harris, can be described as a "Buckskin Apocalypse Now". Robert Young and his crew set out on the Mississippi River in search of Molly Livingston, who has been captured by the ruthless river pirate Samuel Mason. As they make their way north, against the current, they approach hostile indian territory as well as the first in series of terrible earthquakes. Farmhouse: a tale of a drifter who falls in love with an artist undergoing an experimental art therapy regimen, by Elizabeth J. Musgrave and Szymon Kudranski. Chopper: written by Martin Shapiro, illustrated by Juan Ferreyra. Christina and her rowdy girlfriends go to the Daytona Bike Week motorcycle rally and sneak into a nightclub to see a heavy metal band. After taking a hit of the supernatural drug known as Stairway to Heaven, Christina and Trish encounter the ghostly Reaper, a headless Hell's Angel on a chopper who collects the souls of sinners in the afterlife. "We're excited about the possibility of reaching new fans on Free Comic Book Day," explains publisher Frank Forte, "People will be going to comics stores in droves, but they'll also be on their tablets and ipads. Mobile device and smart phone ownership keeps growing at an amazing rate and we want to provide great comics to these readers. Digital comics are the return of the newsstand. Trenchcoats, Cigarettes and Shotguns will appeal to people who like crime comics splattered with demons. Black Powder is an exciting tale of pioneers and river pirates in the mid 1800's. Farmhouse will appeal to Vertigo fans. And Chopper is a straight up horror/thriller." Catch the sampler May 5th on the iPad, iPhone, Android, PC/Mac and Kindle Fire. It will be available on Comixology, Comics+ (Iverse), Graphicly, as well as stand alone apps and epubs on KindleFire, Nook, Kobo, ibookstore, and Googlebooks.
