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.
