Today is Free Comic Book Day

If it is the first Saturday in May it must be Free Comic Book Day! Once again it has come and if you are not busy watching Amazing Spider-Man 2 in the theaters, head out to your local comic book store and show your support for comics. There are over 60 special Free Comic Book Day comics being published this year.
