I’m interrupting your usual Peanuts-y news for a reminder that the first Saturday in May – and as I type this, that’s tomorrow – is Free Comic Book Day. Odds are pretty good that if you walk into a comic book store tomorrow, you’ll be able to walk away with absolutely free comics. The selection and quantity will vary from store to store, but most shops will have at least free Avengers, Power Rangers, DC Superhero Girls, Doctor Who, Disney Princess, Riverdale, Transformers and Pokemon comics, among others. And many will have Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, Spider-Man, Adventure Time, Tank Girl, Miraculous, Nightmare Before Christmas, Star Wars, The Tick, and Street Fighter comics… as well as plenty of comics that haven’t been based on or made transition to movies or TV (yet.)
So go to your local store, get some free comics, take them home and read them…. and if you like them, go back to the store and buy some further issues!
