If you’re curious about what the big deal is with comic books, but aren’t curious enough to walk into a comic book shop and start buying a few – I’ve got the perfect day for you.
Say hello to Free Comic Book Day, which is exactly what it sounds like. Participating stores are giving away participating comic books to anyone who wanders in and wants a copy.
Check it out, bring a friend, bring your kids – see if comics are something they’d enjoy or maybe want to be involved in some day.
This year, Free Comic Book Day falls on May 7th and there are plenty of places in Arizona that are participating:
- The Phoenix Comicon has a very comprehensive list of participating stores.
- But if you still need help finding a store near you, here’s a store locator.
- And here’s a list of comics available.
- (But that doesn’t mean the store you visit will have them or won’t be offering more.)
- Learn all about it at the Free Comic Book Day website.
- Still want to learn more? It has its own Wikipedia page.
I’ll try to keep you all up to date on any stores going above and beyond.
