Free Comic Book Day!

Today is Free Comic Book Day at participating comic book stores around the country. Unfortunately, I won't be able to participate this year, but I encourage every comics fan to head out to their local comics retailer, and bring a friend along!

There are a lot of great-looking giveaway books this year from all the major publishers. I'm particularly enthusiastic about the Civil War Adventure comic from my pal Chuck Dixon and artist Gary Kwapisz - which features action-packed historical tales of the American Civil War... and the all new Richie Rich comic from Kizoic/Ape Entertainment. It's an exciting new, action-adventure-oriented update of the classic comics character, and a perfect introduction to comics for young readers. 

And don't worry that your kids won't know who Richie Rich is - the same comic includes a Kung Fu Panda adventure, based on the Dreamworks animated movies. Both stories look great!

If historical tales and kid's comics aren't your thing, don't worry. Marvel offers the ever-reliable Spider-Man, DC has upcoming movie star Green Lantern, IDW offers Joe Hill's Locke & Key, and Archie Comics have, well, Archie (& the gang)! So drop by your local store today, and check out all the free comics goodness!
