Coming up this Saturday is Free Comic Book Day. Now, usually when I wax rhapsodic about this annual event, I’ve had some free Peanuts-inclusive comic book to steer you toward at your local comic shop, but not this year. With the KaBoom Peanuts series about to draw to a close, they’re focusing their promotion on other publications.
But so what? Go to your local comic book shop anyway. This year’s free books include comics mainstays like Archie and The Phantom, comics linked to this summer’s comics-based movies like Civil War and Suicide Squad, comics of animation favorites like Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, and Pokemon, science fiction franchises like Doctor Who and Serenity, and some things you’ll never have heard of but which may be great! Go to www.freecomicbookday.com to find out details.
