Today is Saturday, May 1, the first Saturday in May, which means it’s also Free Comic Book Day. For noobs, this means get your asses to your local comic shop, where you’ll find a wide-ranging selection of comic books and samplers that are totally free. Many shops are also hosting writers and artists, as well as comic characters to hang out with. The selection this year is pretty solid, from the Dark Horse offering of Doctor Solar/Magnus Robot Fighter, to a Del Rey Showcase, to The Sixth Gun from Oni Press, to Kevin Smith’s new Green Hornet, and plenty more. So what are you waiting for? If you haven’t yet, go check out your local shop, and maybe support them by buying a book while you’re there.
