It’s pretty simple. When Stan Lee says “Jump,” you say “How high?” When he tells you to visit your local comic book store on May 3rd for Free Comic Book Day, you do it. Like I said, simple.
This year, Free Comic Book Day is on Saturday May 3rd at participating comic book shops across the country and worldwide. This year there’s over 60 free comics available to choose from for kids of all ages. Some of these comics include Guardians of the Galaxy, Spongebob, DC’s The New 52: Futures End, Teen Titans Go, Transformers vs. GI Joe, Power Rangers, Hello Kitty and much more.
For more information about Free Comic Book Day, go to their website. You can also use the store locator to find participating comic shops in your area.
Check out Stan after the break.

Even though you probably already know, the first Saturday in May (that’s tomorrow or today, depending on when you read this) is a great day for comic book fans everywhere. Why? Well, its Free Comic Book Day of course!
What does that mean? It means that you can walk into any participating comic book store in your area, grab some free comics and then leave, go home and enjoy reading them. That’s it. No muss, no fuss.
Free as in free beer. And who doesn’t love free?
You can check out the list of free comic books for this year—including an origin special for Robert Kirkman’s Super Dinosaur, and then look for stores in your area that are participating. In addition to all the great free comics, its always nice to help out the comic shop owner a bit by actually buying a few things too.
You don’t have to by anything, though, its just a nice thing to do. Lots of stores put a bunch of stuff on sale too so that’s a bonus.
No matter what, be sure to get out there and have some fun. After all, fun is what comics are all about, right?
