Take the kids to Free Comic Book Day on Saturday, May 3
By Jennifer Osieczanek
Movies based on comic books are HUGE these days, so why not show your kids how it all started.
Saturday is Free Comic Book Day, when comic book stores across the country give out freebies to anyone who comes through their doors.
FYI, Free Comic Book Day is serious business, so we’ve rounded up some tips if it’s your first time.
- Start by finding participating stores in your area here.
- Then either call or check the store’s websites or Facebook page for details about how they’re handling the event and if they’ll have other festivities going on to celebrate.
- You may want to visit more than one store to get a variety of free comics and that’s totally OK to do.
- Some stores are busy enough that there will be lines. Be prepared with drinks, snacks and something to entertain the little ones.
- Don’t forget to say thanks. While the comic books are free to you, they’re not free to the shops giving them away.
- And finally, don’t forget to have fun! Why not dress up as SpiderMan or Wonder Woman? Just like the movies, you can bring comic book characters to life.
