Free comics to be given out Saturday
ho doesn’t love free stuff? (You? Shut up, you, nobody likes you anyway.) Anyway, for the rest of us, there’s the fifth annual Free Comic Book Day on Saturday.
Area comic stores like The Great Escape (1925 Broadway, 327-0646, thegreatescapeonline.com) and Rick’s Comic City (2628 Old Lebanon Road, 883-7890, rickscomiccity.com) will be giving away comics made just for this event from over 28 publishers. (Recommendations: Free Scott Pilgrim, X-Men/Runaways and The Preposterous Voyages of Ironhide Tom!)
And while you’re there, check out Civil War #1. It’s not one of the free books (costs $3.99 actually); rather it’s the start of Marvel Comics’ big summer blockbuster event pitting hero against hero over a government registration act. Some heroes, led by Iron Man for some reason, support the government wanting superheroes to register their secret identities. Others, led by Captain America, are vehemently against the unmasking.
