Free Comic Book Day

Free Comic Book Day is a single day - the first Saturday in May each year - when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE* to anyone who comes into their stores. *Check with your local shop for their participation and rules. highly recommend this. It promotes reading, but more importantly it forms a bond between parents and kids. I have fond memories of my dad  doing nerdy things with me. Waiting HOURS to see Empire Strikes Back, playing Intellivision games with me, and going to Comic Book stores with me. Take your kids to a local comic store this Saturday. Have fun true believers.

These kids parents never took them to comic book stores.
