The merry month of May is nearly here, and boy is it PACKED with exciting comic book news.
The first Saturday of May is Free Comic Book Day!
Literally dozens of comic titles are producing FCBD editions for you to enjoy. They range across a wide area of interests.
There are kiddie titles like Archie, Spongebob, and Hello Kitty.
All-ages fun is provided by Atomic Robo, Kaboom Summer Blast, and Rocket Raccoon.
And for the more mature readers, well just look for anything with a zombie, a big gun, or an exposed midriff on the cover.
Remember – don’t be greedy.
Some shops may put limits on the number of comics you can have. This is done to ensure that no one goes home empty handed. Why not take some friends along to trade and share comics with?
Heads Up for you Savvy Shoppers – many comic shops run sales on FCBD. Support a local business and get a great deal on some graphic novels or other groovy merch.
