It’s that time of year again!

This Saturday is Free Comic Book Day, which coincides nicely with the release of X-Men Origins: Wolverine (it’s like … they planned it or something!) and is, in my mind, the very unofficial kickoff to summer.

Free Comic Book Day is always a good time and an inexpensive way to be introduced to comics you may have not otherwise picked up and there is something for every taste (and trust me, if you have any interest in a free title, just get it — I didn’t pick up Umbrella Academy and I still feel stupid about it). And anyway, who doesn’t like free stuff? There are few better things than spending a warm spring Saturday afternoon in your local comic book store.

  1. I actually picked up the Umbrella academy one. Usually I am oblivious to cool things.

    My LCS never stocks a wide variety, but they already put aside the atomic robo one for me… because they love me. Hopefully they got enough to introduce it to people that haven’t read it yet, but I am happy I got mine.

    At our last girl scout meeting I gave every girl a printout that in addition to telling them all the places to find comics in the library, also had a big blurb about fcbd and where the closest shop is, and the web address for fcbd so they could find other shops if needed. I am excited, and wish I felt like hitting the road to try a few shops farther away. I would love to get the Love and Rockets fcbd offering. I am hoping that all 17 or so of our scouts actually show up at the shop, but I will be pleased if even a few do.
