#Free Art Friday 3 (closed!)

A Very Special Free Art Friday!

ANY COMIC FROM ANY INDY COMIC MAKER!

Usually #FreeArtFriday involves Emporium Purgatorio giving away a comic or comic related pieces of our own choosing with the hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

To celebrate *Unofficial Alan Moore & Emporium Purgatorio’s ‘official’ launch as a force for good within the Comic realm, as well as the ‘realm’ realm, this Friday the first one to contact Emporium Purgatorio either on this post, here, or on Twitter, can CHOOSE ANY SINGLE ISSUE COMIC, FROM ANY INDEPENDENT COMIC MAKER / OUTLET, and Emporium Purgatorio will send it to your door absolutely FREE in true #FreeArtFriday fashion.

We hope you then follow that tradition yourself by gifting another comic to someone you know and asking them to do the same for one or more people they know!

 

To give you some ideas, here are a few EmpPurg has really enjoyed recently, or is really eager to!
