Hooray hooray, Free Comics Book Day!!!!!
The First Saturday in may is celebrated by comics fans everywhere as Free Comic Book Day.
Started seven years ago, the day was begun to help bring awareness of the genre to non comic readers. All the companies participate by creating special comics just for the promotion.
It's a great way to bring new fans to the stores and its also a wonderful chance to try some really cool comics, and in some places it's a chance to meet comics writers and artists.
I've gone the last few years and it's great fun. Parents bringing their kids in to the store and helping them pick out comics, fans who already read talking with other fans. If you have some time tomorrow you should really go
