Have you heard of Free Comic Book Day? They are celebrating their 16th anniversary of giving free comic books away. It’s an amazing time to check out some new comics and encourage kids to read. It’s held the first Saturday of May and this Saturday, May 6 from 10am-6pm is the 2017 free comic book day!
My middle son is a huge comic book fan and he looks forward to Comic Book Day every year. Last year, we met Mike Worley (a Simpson’s illustrator) and got a free Lisa Simpson sketch with purchase. He will be at Ground Zero on 50th & L again this year. It was so neat to see him sketch a picture.
Krypton comics will have a special appearance with Dean Cain (from Lois & Clark/Supergirl). Plus, they are doing a costume contest at this location. How fun!
