Yes, that’s right, guys and gals! Another Free Comic Book Day is upon us! Be sure to find your local comic book shop (or even your local book shop, like Hastings) and see if they participate. Or you can go to the Official Free Comic Book Day website and plug in your zip code to find out.
So what IS Free Comic Book Day, you might ask? It’s a single day – the first Saturday of May every year – when participating comic book shops across the world give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their stores. Generally, there’s a list of titles that will be available (ooh, look, Buffy!)
Maybe eventually, Free Comic Book Day will be extended to digital – that’s my only complaint about this great event. Wouldn’t it be awesome to go to Dark Horse Digital and Comixology and pick up a few free titles, too?
