Free Comic Book Day 2013 – A Whole Other Level Of WTF

FCBD1I’ve become a Free Comic Book Day regular over the past three years. It takes place on the first Saturday of May at Reader’s Den at Stadium On Main and holy shit it’s amazing.

You get different levels of comic book geeks. It probably starts with guys like me who’ve read a bit of this and that, like the medium and go out of curiosity and you get the types you’re about to see in this post.

Free Comic Book Day happens at comic book stores all over the world and is a way to create awareness around comic books and most importantly get people reading them, which I think is a worthy cause.

Tomorrow’s Free Comic Book Day!

free-comic-book-dayOnce a year, comic book shops the world over unite to give away free comic books to the masses on the first Saturday in May, which is tomorrow bitches!

I checked Free Comic Book Day out last year and ended up dropping about R500 on graphic novels because they were going for 50% of what you’d normally pay for them in some cases.

It’s totally worth checking out, not only for the discounted comic books and graphic novels, but also for the fan boys and girls who get ass dressed up for the occasion like they’re at Comic Con or something.
