Here’s my Public Service Announcement of the week. As you know I have made it my mission to try and get people interested in comic books and comic culture. Well this Saturday will be the perfect opportunity to start your collection and start your love of the medium!
The 1st Saturday in May every year is designated “Free Comic Book Day” and most (not all, but most) comic book stores will have a whole host of comic books for free that you can walk in and pick up absolutely free!
Free Comic Book Day has three goals:
1. To introduce everyone to the joys of reading comics.
2. To call back former comic book readers.
3. To thank current comic book buyers for their continued support.

Titles this year include books from DC, Marvel, Image, Dark Horse, IDW and many more publishers. Also in addition to free books, many retailers treat this as a Black Friday and have markdowns on several items in the store, from back issue books, collectables, and other merchandise. So if you have a lovable geek in your life, this Saturday may be the day to head to a comic book store near you to get some shopping done.
