Go Get Comics!

I intended to post this last night to give you a bit more of a head start, but today is Free Comic Book Day. Yeah, it's pretty much just like it sounds. In an attempt to drum up sales and bring new customers, for one day every year, comic book stores fall back on the old standby strategy of giving stuff away.

Click here to find a comic book store near you if you don't already know where one is, and you can check out the choices for free comics here. There are old standbys such as Superman (in a reprint of a great comic, by the way), The X-Men, The Simpsons, and Archie, but if you're interested, take a look at some of the lesser titles that you might not know but look interesting. And don't forget to bring the kids--even if not everything is suited to passing to a ten-year-old, you'll find a lot of titles that are. I haven't actually been out to the store yet myself, today, so I don't know much more about what's available than what I can read on the link above, but there are more than a couple of titles that are intriguing me.

Drop a comment to let us know about your experience.

Well, I didn't go to any comic book stores, but I did take in the new Iron Man movie. As I recall, admission wasn't free though, so I guess it doesn't count.
