I’m dedicating May on my blog to Comic Books/Graphic Novels and street art in honor of FREE comic book day on Saturday May 5th, Comicpalooza the weekend of May 25-27 and the weekend showing of STICK EM UP! movie at the MFAH.
Most comic book shops participate in FREE comics day. It’s this Saturday May 5th. Hours and books vary depending on the store but the goal is the same, to give comics to people for free to encourage them to read.

Street art is alive and well in Houston and its always exciting to see new pieces. Here are some pieces that were new to me when I was street art hunting. Not sure of the artist of the piece above (Meek?) or below (Opie?).
This beauty wasn't accessible due to the fencing. It's by Daniel Anguilu and graces the side of the Baha'i building.
And finally a piece by Zen (on the top) and ? below.
Don't miss out on your chance to see STICK EM UP! movie! This weekend only $7 at the MFAH http://www.stickemupmovie.com
Come back to my blog next week I'll be discussing several graphic novels!
