What better than comic books? Free comic books of course! On Saturday May 7th, thousands of comic book retailers all over the United States, Canada and even some countries overseas, will be giving them away. All you have to do, is walk into the store.
Now in its 10th year, the event which is a collaboration between comic publishers, retailers and distributors was started as a way to introduce new readers to comics and, the neighborhood store that stocks them.
While not all comic books are free, there is a big enough selection to suit almost everyone's taste. This year's choices include Amazing Spiderman, Green Lantern Flashpoint, Geronimo Stilton & Smurfs, Kizoic Kung Fu Panda and Richie Rich and many more. While one free comic book is guaranteed, some stores give out multiple. Also, even the ones that are not part of the promotion are sold at a big discount.
So make sure you get yourself at least one if not more comic books this Saturday - For while you or your parents may not know this, but according to experts, comics are really good for learning.
