If you consider yourself a geek or a nerd, you probably aren’t interested in drinking yourself silly and betting on horse races. But, luckily for you, Free Comic Book Day falls on the same date. All comic book stores worth their salt are handing out 50 comic books, and three stores are hosting specials on the rest of their inventory. The Great Escape is offering five free comic books to everyone and 25 percent off all back issue comics and secondhand graphic novels (Saturday and Sunday); The Destination is offering anywhere from 5 percent to half off a variety of its inventory, with a guest appearance by comic book artist Terry Huddleston; and Zone Comic Shop is bringing out its back room stock for a blowout sale as well.
