With Avengers: Age of Ultron nearing it’s North American premiere, the comic industry is preparing for an event of its very own!
I hope you all like free comics, because this Saturday on May 2nd is 2015’s annual Free Comic Book Day!!! (or FCBD 2015 for short). For those of you who don’t know, on the first Saturday of May every year participating comic book stores in North America will be giving out select titles provided by publishers across the industry for absolutely nothing. This year we are lucky enough to have 50 titles to choose from including Marvel’s SECRET WARS #0, Titan’s DOCTOR WHO SPECIAL, and DC Comic’s DIVERGENCE!
Comic books are notoriously intimidating to delve into, however FCBD 2015 is a fantastic way take those first steps. The act of entering a comic store opens up avenues of media that you can relate to more than you ever imagined. Don’t be afraid to ask for recommendations. Any good comic book store is a safe haven for geek culture and should welcome any sort of curiosity for the medium. Tell them what you’re into and you will most certainly find a comic book for you.
