Happy Free Comic Book Day!

Today is the first Saturday in May, and that means it’s the most wonderful time of the year for comic book fans old and new: Free Comic Book Day!!!

How can you say no to that face?

How can you say no to that face?

For those of you unfamiliar with this most spectacular retail holiday, today is the day when comic shops around the world make a number of comic books freely available to anyone and everyone who visits their store(s).  It’s a great way to get exposed to books that you never would have read before (or at all, if you’re not a regular comic reader.)  There’s no catch, there’s no hidden cost, and there’s no reason not to swing by your local comic shop and check them out! And while you’re there, you can take a look at some of the comics that inspired the latest crop of blockbuster movies like Kick-Ass, The Losers, Iron Man 2, and the upcoming Scott Pilgrim.

What’s that, you say?  “I don’t know where my local comic shop is,”?  Not to worry, the folks behind Free Comic Book Day have you covered.  Just visit freecomicbookday.com and punch in your zip code to see all of the participating shops near you.  Still not convinced that FCBD is worth your time?  Well, maybe film (and comic) legend Kevin Smith might be able to sway you.  Check it out:

Well, that’s all I have to say about that.  Time to go get some free comics of my own!
