That's right! Participating comic book stores will LITERALLY be GIVING AWAY comics on Saturday! There are all kinds of offerings from superheroes to kid-friendly titles to "serious" artcomix to goofball humor. It's worth checking out. Here's the various titles (what your store has may vary):

And who doesn't like free comics???

If you like the free books you get be sure to support your local shop. From what i've heard the free comics they give out are actually not free to them (just discounted), so if you like something they give you for free, why not pay them a visit down the road...you might find something else you like.

Personally, I'm looking forward to Comics Festival, Unseen Peanuts, The Train Was Bang on Time, Bongo, and Owly.

We got quite a haul. Free comics were:

Teen Titans
Ironman & Hulk

and a "sampler" of new comics

Also rounded out my Scott McCloud collection with

Making Comics
Reinventing Comics


and

Eisner's Comics and Sequential Art

and my son also got

Spider-man: Birth of Venom (graphic novel)

and some Magic:TG cards.

They also had a good selection of games, so I picked up Tsuro
