Geek Deals: Free Comic Book Day

Today is the only day each year when you can walk into your local comic book store and walk out with an arm full of free comic books. Sure, most of the selections are probably not worth paying for in the first place, but who knows, you might discover something really cool.

For those of you who don't know, Free Comic Book Day is a single day when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their stores. Free Comic Book Day is held the first Saturday in May each year. This year's event takes place on May 3rd 2008. Different stores have policies on how many free comics you can receive, but you will receive at least one free comic if you enter a participating store location. Check with your retailer for their policies and plans for FCBD.

You can visit the Free Comic Book Day website to see some of the comic books they will be giving away this year. There will actually be a few great books available like Grant Morrison's All Star Superman #1 which is loved by most everyone aside from myself (I just find the whole thing way too ridiculous... even for Superman), Mike Mignola's Hellboy/B.P.R.D., Alex Ross' Project Super Powers, and many others.
