Free Comic Book Day 2013This Saturday, May 4 is Free Comic Book Day, a nationwide event in which participating comic shops give away free comic books to their store visitors. The specifics of the event vary from store to store, but you can get a list of participating shops here. If you have young kids, make sure to visit one of the shops labeled “kid-friendly” – this means they will have comic books appropriate for youngsters. Participating comic shops will give away at least one free comic to everyone who asks, though some shops may give more. Not all titles will be given away for free; see a list of the featured comics here.

Collected (3467 Blue Bonnet Cir., Fort Worth)
Y2Komics (5270 Trail Lake Dr., Fort Worth)
