Because this needs to be posted lest someone doesn't, Tomorrow, Saturday, May 4, is Free Comic Book Day (in the US)! This doesn't mean all the comics are free, but specific FCBD comics the stores get.

The FCBD website has plenty of information, including a list of the comics and a way to search for comic shops near you: http://www.freecomicbookday.com/Home/1/1/27/99…

Gail Simone (Batgirl, The Movement) also explains why it would be good to buy a few issues or a trade paperback from the retailer you visit, to show support and appreciation to the industry and shop for doing this (and my $0.02: support of a small, local business in your area). https://www.facebook.com/gail.simone.90…

Still not sold, thinking comics aren't for you? Try your luck and see what you can grab that suits your genre of preference: http://www.geekexchange.com/5-reasons-anyo…
