If you already have plans for Saturday May 4th, 2013, cancel them. For those of you familiar with comic book related events, the first Saturday of May is Free Comic Book Day.
This annual event is a collaboration between major comic book publishers and your local comic book stores to bring some industry presence and familiarity of comic books to cities worldwide. Typically, first issue comics of upcoming titles are given for free to allow people to become entwined in a series that they can continue to follow. These books include titles from some of your favorite publishers including Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Image, Bongo, IDW, and many others.
Most importantly, many comic book stores have guest artists and writers from some of your favorite titles doing signings, deals and discounted prices on back issues, and other fun events.
Contact your local comic book store or visit www.freecomicbookday.com for more details about this annual event and a list of guests in your surrounding area.
