Today is the first Saturday in May, which makes it Free Comic Book Day. Hard to believe today is the 11th edition of Free Comic Book Day in specialty shops around the country, but it is. If you haven’t already, stop by your local shop and pick up some free goodies.
The promotion was begun on May 4, 2002, the Saturday after the release of the first Spider-Man movie, and the event has often tried to ride the publicity coattails of a major live-action film adaptation. This year, that big movie is Marvel’s The Avengers. (And that is one mighty terrific movie!) At right is my haul from this morning’s quest.
