Free Comic Book Day is this Saturday, May 5

We like comics.  Chances are, if you're here, you like comics too.

We also like comic shops and the chance to mingle with our fellow comics fans, and what better day to do that than Free Comic Book Day?  Yes, one of our favorite days of the year is upon us again, as retailers across the world will be celebrating the world of comics with fans.

The event (or, let's be real, holiday) is in its 17th year this year, and there are plenty of great offerings from all the big publishers.  Do you like DC Super Hero Girls?  DC has you covered.  Excited about the new Avengers title over at Marvel?  Check out their spotlight on Captain America.  Want something a little more off the beaten path?  The Tick, 2000 A.D., and The Only Living Boy are just a few titles you can choose to whet your appetite. 

Head over to the FCBD page for a list of all the free issues available this year, and check here to find participating shops and any special events being held in your area.  Be sure to share your hauls with us on Twitter and Facebook, and pick up a few ongoing issues or trades to help your LCS out, too.
