Hey, kids! Comics!
May 5th is Free Comic Book Day 2012!
Not all shops participate in the event, and if they don't... that's probably not much of a comic shop. So call ahead in the coming weeks to see what your local comic shop is doing. I know at Austin Books and Comics, its always a big to-do, and gets Brandon all crazy-eyed, but in a good way (it gets crazy-busy).
The comics this year look really good. Atomic Robo, Donald Duck, Avengers and other recognizable names like Buffy and many, many all-ages options.
