    MAY 7th: FREE COMIC BOOK DAY

    That's right, it's the first Saturday of May, which is FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! All over America, comic book shops will be handing out free comic books to people who visit their store.

    Wonderful timing too, as it's the day after Thor was released into theaters. :D

    Does anyone plan on taking advantage of this wonderful day? What comic books have you obtained in the past years during that special Saturday? What special comic book do you wish you could have for free?

    Share your experiences, past and present. <3
     
  2. Free Comic Day of 09 planted the seed that would later blossom into my love of the Authority title. No innuendo intended.
     
  3. Yes indeed I plan to take advantage of this. I need to catch up as well. It's been about 2 or so weeks since I got my last comic. I wanna catch up on Fear Itself from Marvel, and I need to get the back logs of Uncanny X-Force. I came in right at the end of the story so I was little clueless as to what went down..and I need to catch up on Amazing Spider...the future force costume looks pretty sick. Makes him look like Anti-Venom though.

    I hope I can get Flashpoint for free when I head over there tomorrow. But of course my day could be spoiled. Bah humbug.
     
  4. I use the Orochi-store all year 'round.
    Like every five years.
     
  5. Won't be anything left by the time I have a chance to get to my local shop this year. Which is disappointing because there's usually one or two titles I fall in love with, even if only for a short spell.

    I suppose I save money this way.
     
  6. stash: ASM, GL, Super Dinosaur, Archie, Kung-Fu Panda, a Yu-Gi-Oh mango (lolwot), 2 local comics and 50 back-issues.

    Then attended Metro Comic Con on the same day. Got even more cheapo comics. After RAEG-ing at the weeaboos.

    Will post pics and make a post on my site later, now it's Doctor Who time.
     
  7. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF- I can't go to the shop today anyone know what the sent freebies were?
     
  8. I had no idea this day existed! Shows how much of a nerd I am. XD
     
  9. There are absolutely no comic shops anywhere near me, really. Sadnessface.
