Today is the day where comic shops around the country will be giving away free books and holding events in celebration of this medium we love. The hope is that not only will it bring people into brick and mortar comic shops, but it will bring new readers into those shops, and into the world of comics.
Free Comic Book Day is a great day for us to remind our local comic shops that we appreciate them and want them to stick around for a long time to come. So go grab a couple free comics at your local comic shop today, and then spend some money to support the store. Bring someone who isn't a comic reader, and buy a couple of books for them. Spread the love of our hobby.
You can see all of this year's Free Comic Book Day comics here at the official site. And you can find your nearest local comic shop here.
