Free Comic Book Day is Coming!

In Around Atlanta on 04/28/2011 at 5:50 am

Cool, fun weekend coming up May 6 with the release of the Thor movie. And the next day is Free Comic Book Day on May 7!

Free Comic Book Day is a single day–the first Saturday in May each year–when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutelyFREE to anyone who comes into their stores!

Avengers Movie

Thor hits Theaters May 6....can't wait for the Avengers NEXT May!

Comic book fans and collectors come in all sizes and ages. And with so much variety, there’s something for everyone in one of the several comic book genres:

Super Heroes: Superman was the star of the very first comic book when he appeared in Action Comics #1 in 1938. Since then, Stan Lee and many others have contributed to our “modern mythology” with a plethora of heroes and villains.

Manga: Asian style graphic novels hugely popular today. Within manga, there are many varieties like romance, action, etc.

Slice-of-Life: These portray real life in autobiographical form and appeal to older teens and adults.

Humor: These give “comics” their name by their silly and ridiculous nature. (Think “Mad” magazine”)

Non-fiction: These explore topics like history, science, and politics.

Science-Fiction/Fantasy: Where the imagination runs wild with stories of other worlds.

Horror: Scary, creepy, spine-tingling stories with grotesque and alarming illustrations.

Visit a comic book store to browse the vast and diverse comics and graphic novels available. And stop in at one of these local comic book stores to pick up your FREE comic on Saturday, May 7.
