Dean did an interview for The News Journal/Delaware Online about FCBD.
“Haspiel wasn’t a fan when he first heard of Free Comic Book Day.
“I did balk at the idea,” he said. “I feel like I’m basically doing it for free anyway because the money isn’t great, only a handful of people in comics are doing well.”
He understands that, he said, especially now as comic book-based movies are so popular, and so good.
“Why would somebody try to dive their head into issue 612 of a continuity mess?” Haspiel said. Now he realizes the free day “does bring people in; it creates the hunger.”
