May 5th: Free Mini-Comics Day!

My second favorite holiday of the year (after 24 Hour Comics Day) just got a lot better... Free Comic Book Day on May 5th is now also Free Mini-Comic Day!
Read the information about how to submit your mini-comics here.


For 2007, FMCD has this list of guidelines those who wish to parcipate:

*All comics must be printed in mini-comic format. Anything ranging from 4.25 x 5.5 to 7 x 8 in size.
*Interior and exterior artwork may be in b&w, greyscale, or color. White paper is preferred for interior pages.
*Comics must be no less than 4 pages(covers included)to no more than 36 pages long. Binding options and choice of paper types are up to the creators.
