Free Book (Kindle/Nook) - Comic Books 101

Comic Books 101 ($10.99 US), by Scott Tipton and Chris Ryall, is free in the EU Kindle store and for European customers in the main Kindle store. Should be free in the UK in a few hours and in the US sometime tomorrow morning, if it follows the usual pattern. (UK link/DE link)

Book Description
For a hobby with 60+ years of history, deciding where to begin reading comics can be daunting for folks new to it. This simple, accessible primer on everything related to comics gives you an easy-to-follow resource whether you want to enjoy the myriad of comics available today or rediscover the comics you grew up reading. Packed with fun cartoons and images, informative sidebars and commentary, Comic Books 101 takes you from the humble beginnings of the comic book all the way through to the popularity of today's comic-based blockbuster films.
