Free Comic Book Day is less than 2 days away! (YAY!)

Before I forget to remind everyone, this Saturday is "Free Comic Book Day". Free Comic Book Day is a single day - the first Saturday in May - when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE to anyone who comes into their stores.

This popular event allows the participating sponsors to introduce their characters to a greater audience, and hopefully to encourage a new generation of fans to join the rest of us geeks in the four color world.

It is particularly gratifying to see that so many of the titles offered on FCBD, fall within the all-ages arena, not that there isn't something for everybody - there is - but the younger you can grab 'em, the longer they'll hang on. At least that's the idea!

Bring your family, bring your friends, bring a stranger to the local comic store this weekend and grab some cool swag. Many shops build an entire event around this annual day, with guest artists, special sales and other goodies.

I'll see you there!
