Free Comic Book Day This Saturday

Are you a fan of comic books? Maybe your kids, significant other, or younger family members are. If so, then you probably already know that tomorrow is Free Comic Book Day. Celebrated on the first Saturday of May, it's the day when comic book stores give away comic books to anyone who walks through the door.

Free Comic Book Day is recognized far and wide. The popular event takes place across North America and even around the world. On Free Comic Book Day, fans of this fun genre often line up bright and early outside their favorite comic book shops, eagerly anticipating the free goods they'll soon get. So if you're taking part this year, it's a good idea to arrive at the comic book shops earlier, rather than later, to guarantee that you'll get your free comics.

For a list of comic book stores participating in Free Comic Book Day, go to THIS LINK. Some of these stores are hosting special events in addition to giving away comic books. And a number of stores will have policies in place regarding just how many comic books will be available for free. Call ahead before you go.

Here's hoping that you'll score a bundle of free comic books for your kids, nieces or nephews, or for yourself (hey, why not?) this Free Comic Book Day!
