Mark Your Calendars: Free Comic Book Day [Events]

That's right.  You read that right.  Free Comic Book Day!  It's always the first Saturday in May.  This year, it's May 7th.
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 absolutely FREE* to anyone who comes into their stores. *Check with your local shop for their participation and rules.
Hate comics?  Don't see the point in comics?  This event is a great opportunity for you to give them a chance. I used to be a skeptic too, but now, I ♥ comics.  I don't read as many comics as I do regular books, but they are always a great break when I need something light.  So take a few minutes out of your day, take a reluctant reader with you (or not) and snag some free comics!

To find a participating store near you, check out freecomicbookday.com!

Don't believe me?  Ask Hugh Jackman or Milo Ventimiglia:

AWESOME!! I'mma go check out which book stores near me are giving some out ;) I looove comic books, but hardly get a chance to read them as they're never on sale near me. (I'm so cheap I only buy things on sale and that includes books.)
