Free Comic Book Day: Saturday, May 1

Looking for a break from all your papers and tests? Want something fun to read? You’re in luck! Saturday, May 1 is Free Comic Book Day! Just walk into any participating comic book store and pick yourself up a free comic!

Free Comic Book Day is an annual event that takes place the first Saturday in May. Shops around the world take part. But, not every store that sells comics will hand you a free one on Saturday. Only stores participating in the event will do so. Luckily, there is an easy-to-use shop locator service on the Free Comic Book Day home page where you can look up these stores in your area.

To find out what comics are available for free, check out the title list on the Free Comic Book Day web site. For more information about the event, see the FAQ section of the site.

The Andersen Library also has a growing selection of graphic novels available for checkout, and they’re free all year ’round! Try a quick keyword search on “graphic novels” in the library catalog to see a list of some of the titles available, or mosey on over to the Graphic Novels section on the main floor of the Library and browse through the collection.

    Look for Hermann’s “Krazy Katt” its the “Shakespeare of comix.” [IMHO…] “Tintin” in French mainly “The Jewels of Castafiore”… Nobody know’s Little Nemo in Slumberland by Winsor McKay ca. 1910 surrealistic billboard-elegant… Nor “Theyll Do It Every Time” Jimmy Hatlo, pure populist realism…And Chris Ware’s “Jimmy Corrigan” a new classic, too long but worth every ponder-inducing panel…….
