May 7th is FREE Comic Book Day!

May 7th is FREE Comic Book Day!

Mark Your Calendars!! Free Comic Book Day is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year on May 7, 2011.

Each year, participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely *FREE* to anyone who comes into their stores. Since its inception, Free Comic Book Day has given out over 20 million free comics to nearly 5.5 million people.

The goal of Free Comic Book Day is to promote the comic book medium to new customers young and old and celebrate the independent comic book retailers and their stores. Comics are fun and a great tool for introducing young children to the world of reading.

This year’s list of free comics includes mainstream titles such as: Kung Fu Panda, The Smurfs, Spider-Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, Green Lantern from this year’s expected blockbuster movie and much more!

This is a great way to get your kids reading, and interested in comic books. When I was little I remember loving the Archie comics with Veronica and Betty. To learn more and to find a participating location near you, Please visit www.freecomicbookday.com

Have fun, and get out and get your Comic book today!
