Here’s a question: What could possibly make a great comic book even better? Well, when it’s being given away for free of course! That’s exactly what fans have to look forward to this Saturday, May 1st when comic book stores across the country participate in Free Comic Book Day: The annual event that sets out to reward longtime readers as well as attract curious newcomers to what’s currently going down with their favorite characters.
Every base is covered from superhero stuff to small press independent books to comics aimed squarely at the five and under set. There’s even that first issue in the long awaited Lady Gaga bio-series that nobody I know has been demanding (personally, I’ve got my eye set on War of the Superman #0).
Be sure to contact your local shop including Atlantis Fantasyworld (winner of this year’s Good Times best comic book store, btw) or Comicopolis to get an idea of how limited their supplies will be. Either way, it’s probably a good idea to get out there early as free stuff has a tendency to go fast.
