Yes indeed. This Saturday is the greatly anticipated annual Free Comic Book Day. The first Saturday in May your local comic book shop (most, anyway) give away free comics as part of this great promotion. The idea is to get people into the store to see that comics are still a great source of storytelling entertainment, and hopefully pick up a few new readers along the way.
This year’s slate of free comics looks terrific, including familiar faces and some new and unique title ideas. I see the reboot of The Green Hornet from Kevin Smith is one of the lot… I wonder if this is the first appearance of the Green Hornet in comics since the days when NOW Comics had the licensing rights to the character.
Anyway, get down to your local comic book shop this Saturday and bring a couple of kids with you… if you can get them to put down the xBox/PS 3 remote long enough that is… and show them some great graphic storytelling.
