Free Comic Book Day!

Posted by Spotter (12 posts) - - Show Bio

Last year I couldn't make it to a comic book store on Free Comic Book Day. This year I'm going to get tons of them. I've just always loved the idea of comic book stores giving away FREE comics! You can't blame me!

@Edamame: Call your LCS and see if they're participating. It's May 1st.

@geraldthesloth: I will.  I hoped there was a website showing which comic book stores were participating.  Is it really free though? No money needed at all? No coupon, or anything? I can just go in and take out any comic book issue?
 
Does it only last for a day? What time does it begin? What time does it end?

@Edamame: a lot of publishers release comics with the Free Comic Book Day tag, those are cover priced as free, the rest I suppose is up to your LCS

@aztek the lost: Oh. So, the Emma Frost one shot, which comes out on May 1st, I believe, won't be free then?

@Edamame: probably not, it's usually just a way publisher's each throw out something to attract new people
 
@jloneblackheart: even the Lady Gaga one? don't encourage Bluewater!

@aztek the lost: I want to give something a low rating, usually I never go below three stars :P

They may still offer it at a slightly lower price, no?

@Edamame: Most comic shops in America host it, and it's on May 1st. Check your local comic shop's times.

@Spotter: Yep. I was hoping that the Emma Frost one shot would be free as well. Oh, well.

I read the preview of the Lady Gaga comic. It's a crime against comic books.
