Celebrate International Children's Book Day With The Only Living Boy

Today, April 2nd, is International Children's Book Day (ICBD), celebrated on the birthday of Hans Christian Andersen, running since 1967 to " inspire a love of reading and to call attention to children's books."

ICO003680_1The Only Living Boy, written by David Gallaher, with art by Steve Ellis, taking part in the festivities as a feature on ComiXology, and is being offered on 50% discount in honor of the day in its first two issues. The comic features Erik Farrell, lost without his memory in an "unfamiliar world" struggling to survive. In fact, Bleeding Cool recently did an interview with the comic's creators, which you can find here.

The following code is valid until 11:59 pm EST April 2nd and can be applied to both the first and second issues of the the series: ONLYLIVINGBOY

So roll on up for some digital all-ages comics and read with a child today. In fact, make a habit of it.
