I have mentioned in previous posts that I have been a life long comic book fan. My cousin introduced them to me when I was in 3rd grade or so and it blossomed into I cherish. It taught me to love reading and worked my imagination to it’s fullest.
Every year, the comic book industry puts on a special event called Free Comic Book Day. Most comic stores participate. This one time every year the comic stores can purchase a specific selection of comic books for very cheap (pennies on the dollar) as long as they give them away for free on free comic book day. Comic stores typically have events surrounding the day with other giveaways going away and comic creators showing up to sign books and meet their fans. This year, Free Comic Book Day is this coming Saturday (May 7, 2011).
How to find stores participating in Free Comic Book Day
It’s a great event for families looking for something cheap and different. If you aren’t sure where the closest comic book store is, use the Comic Book Store Locator Service to see if there is one near you that is participating in this event. If you can find a store close by, take the kids, have some fun, introduce them to the wonderful, creative world of comic books for Free!
