Yes, you read the title of this blog post correct. There is such a thing called Free Comic Book day where indeed you can walk into your local comic book store and in return they will have a selection of free comic books to choose from. It just so happens that this day is THIS SATURDAY, MAY 3rd 2014. This is an absolutely terrific thing, especially if you have children. I mean, Im a grown man and I love Free Comic Book Day but this could shape our nerdy future world if a child is exposed to comic books at the right age. Let’s face it, comics over the years have struggled so this is a great way to get the word out to people of any age who wouldn’t normally collect comics.
Now, some comic shops not only celebrate Free Comic Book Day with free comics but they also have artists, writers, costumers, heck sometimes even bands & rasslin. Some stores also have some terrific sales as well so you can either start a new series or get some back issues to fill your collection on the cheap. Not all stores do this but check around your town to see if any really make the day stand out.
I cannot stress how much I love comic books. Free Comic Book Day is a fun day to celebrate nerd culture with people that share your same interests. As of now, I am not sure what my plans are for the day but I do have the day off of work so I will be able to participate at an event somewhere close to my area.
