Free Comic Book Day

Marvel and DC may have over-saturated the movie market with superhero films, but don’t let that discourage you from diving into the diverse medium of comic books. On Free Comic Book Day, publishers will flood stores with free comics that give you a peek at what’s happening in the storylines of your favorite character. It’s the perfect chance to try a little bit of everything and see what you like. Also, don’t be afraid to ask the people behind the counter for recommendations, because if they didn’t love talking about comic books, they wouldn’t be working there. Participating stores include The Great Escape, The Destination, The Zone and Empire Comics & Games.
