One day a year comic book stores across the country and beyond seek to lure readers new and old into their musty lairs with a selection of colorful free reading material. Today is the Day of Free Comic Books.
Every year, on the first Saturday in May, comic book creators and publishers collaborate with comic book stores around the world to give out free books to once and future fans. It's not too late to participate.
The American comic book industry wants you to buy comics! Head to your local comic book store tomorrow to celebrate the ninth annual Free Comic Book Day, and pickup free comics featuring everyone from Sonic the Hedgehog to Iron Man.
