What could be a more fulfilling way to celebrate Free Comic Book Day here at the Isotope than with one of our all-time favorite comic author and artists... MASKED MUTANT creator Basie S, the 8 year old comics wunderkind!

Basie will be once again proving why he's been called a "comic making prodigy" by comic fans, pros, and funnybook coinnesseurs from all over... with truly inspired free sketches of all your favorite comic characters. Want to know more? Click on over and see 58 photos for the little maestro in action! We will also be featuring an assortment of absolutely free comic books as well as Basie's entire run of MASKED MUTANT monthly series with a day-long FCBD bash we're going to look back on with a smile for years and years.

Featuring great Basie-approved tunes spun by our favorite DJ in the entire city, DJ Bearzbub!

This is what we here at the Isotope think Free Comic Book Day is all about. Celebrating great comics and the next generation of comic readers and creators! Honestly, what could be sweeter?

FCBD w/ Basie S.

Ladies and gents, in honor of our friends at UPS getting us to drive around chasing after them for hours to get our boxes this week (on Earth Day? For shame, UPS!) the IsoStaff is using the power of Photoshop to get ourselves behind the wheel of the big trucks. Who wants a package delivered? Vroom!

Madison Clell w/ Lid, originally uploaded by James Sime.

The amazing Madison Clell stopped by the Isotope today with her long in the works addition to our world famous Comic Rockstars Toiletseat Museum. I'm of the humble opinion that if you don't own a copy of Madison's CUCKOO your indy comic collection will never be even close to complete.

Check out clips from the stage adaptation of this jaw-dropping book here.
