Comic book shop owner Dave Krueski (of Heroes, Comics and Cards in Norwalk) bought 500 coipies of The Amazing Spider Man to participate in a promotion so that his 5-year-old son could appear on the cover of a new issue. That's dedication. Hear him talk about the transformation from the vintage "throwaway" comics of the olden days into the collectibles of today, which he refers to as "a uniquely American form of literature." He'll be at the Westport Library Tuesday night.
Westport Public Library, 20 Jesup Road, Westport. Tue., Aug. 7, 7:30 p.m. Free. (203) 291-4800, westportlibrary.org.
