Free Comic Book Day

Free Comic Book DayTomor­row. May 1st. At a com­ic book store near you. Zowee!

Have you been made aware that May 1st is inter­na­tion­al Free Com­ic Book Day?

Fly like a super­hero to this web­site for all of the details. You can enter your zip­code in the left­hand col­umn to get a list of par­tic­i­pat­ing stores near you. If you’re look­ing for kid-friend­ly comics, there’s a list­ing by zip­code at KidsComics.com.

You do know that you can fol­low your favorite com­ic book cre­ators on Twit­ter, right? @DennisCalero? @mouseguard? @smilinstanlee? @bradmeltzer? Some of the com­ic book stores will host the cre­ators … check your local list­ings. Mean­while, read a roundup on MTV’s Twit­ter Report.

On this day, more than 2,000 inde­pen­dent­ly owned com­ic shops through­out the world will give away more than 2 mil­lion free com­ic books, all pub­lished and avail­able only for this day. The comics will range from Toy Sto­ry, Shrek and Son­ic: the Hedge­hog comics to Iron Man, Super­man, and Doc­tor Solar to cut­ting-edge graph­ic fic­tion for adults.

If noth­ing else, you can hang around and watch the fun. You’re encour­aged to dress as your favorite super­hero or com­ic book char­ac­ter. I’ll be don­ning my Ama­zo­ni­um bracelets for my own trek to our local store. Shaz­am!
