Comics and Community III
Coming soon to a train car or park bench near you: Media Diet's Free-Range Comic Book Project.

Over the course of the next year, I am going to distribute 200 "free-range comic books" in the Boston area by leaving them on train cars and park benches -- and in other public places. Each comic book will be labeled with a card that reads, "This is a free-range comic book. Take it. Read it. Give it away."

If you come across one of these comic books and check out the URL printed on the card -- this site -- please let me know where you found it. I'd appreciate it.

And whatever you do, don't put the comic in a bag, with a board, or in a box. And whatever you do, don't sell it into the slavery of the back-issue bin. Free-range comic books need fresh air, sunlight, and active reading. When you're done with the book, pass it on.

I and the free-range comic books thank you.
