Comic Book day
If you are a comic book fan or just love free things, you are in luck because Saturday, May 6 is Free Comic Book Day. As the name indicates, it is the day when
retailers across the globe will give out free comic books to anyone that walks into the store.
Celebrated on the first Saturday of May, the annual event, which began in 2002, is the brainchild of retailer Joe Field. The owner of Flying Colours Comics & Other Cool Stuff was inspired by the success of similar events like Free Cone Day and suggested the idea to retailers, publishers, and distributors.
He believed it would make people, both young and old visit their neighborhood store and
revive interest in comic books.
Over the past sixteen years, retailers have given away over 12 million comic books and the numbers are only growing.
Not every comic book in the store is free. However, with 50 specially published titles to choose from, there is something to suit every taste. Even if none of the free offerings catch your fancy, a visit to the store might still be worth the effort. That's because
vendors usually discount all comic books and other merchandise on this fun day.
