Things To Do: Free Comic Book Day Sat. May 4th

FCBD_wide_logo

This coming Saturday is Free Comic Book Day.  If you are of a geeky bent or have children I highly recommend checking out this event.  You will receive free comics books (Yes, actually free, no strings), get to check a local small business owner and meet other folks with similar interests.

Why should we go?

Comics are a bit like mythology to us.  We don’t have many shared stories in our culture so some of our earliest examples of morality and justice come from our fictional heroes.  Comics helped me learn to read at an early age and can do the same for your kids as well.

Who should come

Everyone.   There are comics for every age and almost every interest.  There are comics about sports, about classic literature, romance, drama and of course good ole’ classic superheroes.  If comics really are not your thing (How can this be?!?) then most of these shops contain other nifty things like collectible cards, board games, classic video game equipment, weird Japanese candy etc.

Where?

Several local locations are running events.  If you are not in the Southcoast of Massachusetts then you can use the store locator here.  Otherwise check out the listings below.
