Aw Yeah Comics in
Skokie, IL. is proud to announce the very 1st Annual KIDS MAKE COMICS DAY! Saturday, July 28th, Art Baltazar and Franco Aureliani
(the Eisner & Harvey Award winning team behind DC's Tiny Titans and Superman Family Adventures), will be in the store
from 10am to 5pm, teaching kids how to make comic books. The store will provide paper, pencils, crayons, and markers, and
the pair will sit down and show kids the process of making comic books. From story to art, kids will get a hands on approach
with creators working in the industry, and hopefully spark a life long interest in our medium.
as idea for our store event has progressed. We now invite any comic store, around the world, to join in the fun. Become a
venue, provide the basic materials, and speak to creators of all kinds to see if they would be willing to share their time,
knowledge, and passion for comics with enthusiastic youth. Our intent is for this to become a yearly, widespread event on
the scale of Free Comic Book Day and 24 Hour Comic Day. Our Facebook page is already up, as is our Twitter feed. A more permanent
website, that will list each participating store and creator, is in the works, and will be finished soon.
In the meantime, if any store or creator has any questions, ideas, or comments, please feel free to send the firstname.lastname@example.org
The process of growing our industry is carried out on numerous levels, but most importantly getting children
involved in creating and reading comics. This helps ensure that our beloved industry stays healthy for generations to come.

From DC comics:
in December, we announced SUPERMAN FAMILY ADVENTURES, a new ongoing monthly series for readers of all ages by the Eisner
Award-winning creative team of TINY TITANS, Art Baltazar and Franco.
Today, take an exclusive first look at the cover
for the series’ premiere issue, in stores on May 30th. But wait, there’s more! We reached out to Art and Franco
to exclusively give you fine readers of THE SOURCE a few teases about what to expect in SUPERMAN FAMILY ADVENTURES. Take it
“Superman is here! And he’s bringing his family!!! AW YEAH!” said Baltazar. “Working
on SUPERMAN FAMILY ADVENTURES is truly a highlight to my career. Everything you know about the Superman mythos is here in
this comic. You will see Bizarro, Parasite, Brainiac, Metallo and yes, even Lex Luthor! Writing and drawing bad guys is really
cool! We had bad guys in TINY TITANS, but this time, they fight the heroes! ACTION! ADVENTURE! HUMOR! BIG GORILLAS! GIANT
ROBOTS! LOIS! JIMMY! PERRY! and…SUPER PETS!!!! Whaaaa? Yep, that’s a true story right there! SUPERMAN FAMILY
ADVENTURES is gonna rock! Aw yeah Krypton!”
“SUPERMAN!!! Are you kidding me? SUPERMAN!!!” continued
Franco. “Ask any comic creator and this will be the number one guy they want to work on!! I’m definitely excited
to be able to work with my good friend Art Baltazar on the all-new SUPERMAN FAMILY ADVENTURES. The book is going to be filled
with amazing adventures, stories and humor featuring the entire cast of the Superman family – Lois, Jimmy, Supergirl,
Superboy and even a few surprises you haven’t seen in a while like Fuzzy The Krypto Mouse. You should come along because
this is going to be a fun ride!”

In TINY TITANS #43 (on sale August 17th), look out for a very special gag of DC Comics-The New 52 revolving around
“This is an AMAZING time for the ‘AW YEAH’ age of comics!”
said series writer/artist Art Baltazar. “Comics and super-heroes have been in our hearts since we were babies! It’s
an honor to be part of the DC Family! This awesome news is perfect timing with DC Comics-The New 52 #1s! Fans have been asking
us what we think … let’s just say … you will have to ask Cyborg in this issue.”
And today, we can announce that fresh off of their Eisner Award win at San Diego Comic-Con last week (in the Best Publication for Kids category), TINY TITANS’ New York Times bestselling creative team Art Baltazar and Franco have
signed exclusive deals with DC Comics.
“I am soooooo thrilled about joining DC comics
exclusively!” Franco said. “I have been reading these books since I was a kid and the fact that I get to work
on these characters is just simply … AMAZING! The fact that DC asked us to come on board exclusively tells everyone
the commitment they have made, not only to creating great comic books, but also great comic books geared towards ALL ages!!”
AW YEAH EXCLUSIVE!! and next you can catch us right here:
