FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, SAT 5/7 - 2016
It’s gonna be May! Well, it is May. Get over it. Get over yourself with the cold weather, the endless April showers turning into grey Uber commutes and start to leave the house with purpose for the first time since Star Wars: A Force Awakens.
We here at DO617 strive to get you going! Consider us the web equivalent of slamming a Red Bull during finals. This Saturday May 7, sleep in a bit but go out and get some free stuff!
That’s right, the first Saturday in May is Free Comic Book Day. What does that mean? Easy. It means free comics for you, your kids, your Mom (we’ll get to her later) and an excuse to dust off that Halloween Superman costume already smelling like moth balls.
Here’s what you need to know!
WHAT TO DO AND WHERE TO DO IT —
LCS is short for Local Comic book Store. Don’t know where the closest participating comic book store is in your neighborhood? That’s ridiculous! Aren’t you there every Wednesday to pick up your limited Klingon edition of the latest Star Trek rag when the doors open? Oh, that’s just me.
Here is where you can find your closest comic book retailer, enter your address into the robot and find your LCS. (see how easily you are learning)?
Lots of stores, like New England Comics for instance, will have superheroes dressed up to greet you when you come in! Don’t worry, that person doesn’t have Kryptonian strength, you can shake his or her hand. These COSPLAYERS mean you no harm. Please ASK them if it is OK to take a picture, hold their sword or touch their hair. Cosplay does NOT mean consent!
