The first weekend in May is Free Comic Book Day in Canada. Walk into participating comic stores and pick up a free comic book. Not so easy if you leave in Attawapiskat, but with the help of Canada Post four comic books were mailed to our man in Attawapiskat — Barry Koostachin.
Koostachin received the comic books on Friday May 11 and has been assigned the task of reading them and providing feedback on the comics he received and how better to get First Nations who are not connected by all season roads better involved.
Stay tuned for Barry Koostachin’s story which will follow in a couple of days.
While the mailing of the four comic books to Barry was a last minute idea, better involving remote communities in Free Comic Book Day is our goal as a new feature for 2019 Free Comic Bock Day in Canada. That would be awesome. Stay tuned.
