May 3, 2014: Free Comic Book Day
Comics, comics everywhere, but not a page to read!
Ready to be inundated with mountains of comics? Summer vacation looking a touch too warm to spend outside? Getting an early start acquiring wrapping paper for Christmas? Saturday, Today is Free Comic Book Day!
Head down to your local comic book shop to have your pick of a fantastic assortment of volumes from different publishers. Most of the comics will be designed specifically for the holiday, but you might luck into some other rare treasures. Archie, Hello Kitty, Spider-Man, Les Miserables, Megaman, and even Power Rangers (for my fellow 90's fans!) are all in the lineup. Yes, these comics are 100% free. It's a May tradition! . . . Well, if starting in 2002 counts as tradition, then it counts. Close enough.
Not sure if you have a store near you participating? Try here! There are easily half a dozen comics stores near us in Austin. We sifted through our archives for three HEAVY boxes of extra comics to donate to Tribes and Rogue's Gallery, local Austin comic stores. Some stores encourage a "Need a comic? Take a comic. Have a comic? Leave a comic," philosophy, so check ahead to see if you can get rid of the dusty ones!
