Free Comic Book Day!
I’ve been meaning to get this post up since last weekend!!! So before I haul you-know-what out the door to go see the Avengers this afternoon and the day completely gets away from me, I am posting this (and yes, re-writing from what I had previously written. Let me assure you, it was brilliant – this, however, will not be…. *sigh*).
IT’S FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!!!
For those of you who may be new to comics or just getting back into them, this is definitely a day you will want to mark on your calendars moving forward. For the past ten years on the first Saturday in May this has become somewhat of a “nerd holiday” and I can’t imagine a better weekend to celebrate it’s 10th Anniversary than the opening weekend of the Avengers!!! For a complete list of free comics check the list on the official site.
I implore you – please go support your local comic book shop by attending today’s event. I wrote a piece not too long ago about doing just that and how we need to support this medium we love with our hard earned dollars. Even if your local shop is not participating this year, let them know that FCBD is why you are there and ask them to look into participating next year.
Now go do your part, my little NerdCRIT’ers! Set your Twitter account ablaze with #FCBD . . . . post this article to your Facebook pages . . . . . like the hell outta this post on WordPress . . . . . and go grab your free comics! You can thank me later.
