For comics, anyway.

I think everyone's probably already linking to David Carter's Free Comic Book Month project, but in case you haven't heard: David wants to give you free stuff. All month long, even.

What I haven't seen as much reference to, though, is an older entry I happened upon on the blog of Lucas and Odessa and Sparkneedle's Spike, as GAM goes free for a day:

May 7th is Free Comic Book Day, and GAM will be celebrating by opening up the archives for free viewing for a full 24 hours. So all of you out there that can't afford subscriptions, or just claim you can't afford subscriptions, or want a preview before you plunk down any money for a subscription, or read it weekly, but missed a few pages and got lost, or just plain think I somehow don't deserve to be paid for the work I do, mark your calendars!

Apparently, the extent to which archives are free depends on the individual contributor (much like the FCBD offerings of each publisher are up to that publisher, I should think), but Spike asserts, "if I get my way, Sparkneedle and Lucas & Odessa will both be free IN THEIR ENTIRETY."

Who can scoff at free comics? Bring 'em on, say I.
