May the Cheek be With You

Today's date is usually associated with Han Skyvader and his space-faring chums, but this year it's also Free Comic Book Day. Among the freebies being distributed by certain comic shops is Rebellion's Funny Pages, which was previewed a few days ago on Lew Stringer's blog.

There are no comic shops near where I live, and I didn't relish a long and probably fruitless trek in search of a copy. However, Lew's helpful post indicates that Cheeky, who is among the comic superstars adorning the Funny Pages front cover, is not featured in any of the strips inside. His role appears to be as a gag-cracking filler, along with other classic japesters from the IPC corral, at the foot of the pages, the otherwise-blank space presumably resulting from the different width-to-height ratio of the new comic pages compared to those of yore.

I followed the link on Lew's blog that suggests a digital version of Funny Pages is available but I couldn't see it anywhere.

Congratulations to anyone who managed to secure a copy.
