Hey Kids, FREE Comic Books!

Just like in Immortal Iron Fist #8 when the 7 celestial cities align after 88 years apart so that their Immortal Weapons can do combat in the ultimate tournament to decide who has the best kung fu, here on Earth once every 365 days comic publishers throughout North America combine their powers in order that we mortals may have Free Comic Book Day!!

On the first Saturday of May each year most of the major North American comic book publishers each produce a comic book to give away free, yes free! So make sure you visit your friendly neighbourhood comic book shop tomorrow May 2nd and they will give you, get this (!), free comics!

With the majority of titles aimed at an all-ages readership there’s some great reads for everybody. Check out the new Owly comic (and the very surreal Korgi story inside) for one of my personal favorites. Flav-of-the-month Wolverine appears in Marvel Comics Avengers give-away (drawn by the always awesome Jim Chueng), snkkt! Not to mention Savage Dragon, The Simpsons, Aliens/Predator, Usagi Yojimbo

For those other 364 days, there’s always a heap of great comics free at your local library. Some of the highlights of recent additions to our catalogue include: Sandman (Absolute editions), Invincible vol.4, Tales of the Batman, Fables vol.11, Welcome to Hoxford, Scott Pilgrim vol.5, Joker, Owly vol.5, All Star Superman vol.2… (yes, i could just keep going)

May your kung fu always be good kung fu.

    Thanks for the heads-up, ma1c. Sent the ‘kids’ off on Saturday with bus money and a map, and they returned with goodies. So easy and so cool. They’ve both already been figuring out what they want to read now, AND checking the library catalogue! Free stuff is good stuff.
