All that will have to wait, because Saturday is Free Comic Book Day.
Following hot on the heels of April’s Record Store Day, the May 1 event continues an annual effort on the part of the comic book industry to promote independent comic shops.
Among the many special-edition free “funny books” — as the kids like to call ‘em — is a shiny new Marvel comic featuring Thor and Iron Man, just in time to get in the mood for Iron Man 2.
Unfortunately, the comic book debut of Kevin Keller, Archie Comics’ much-publicized gay character won’t be available until September. But the good news is that, while you’re there, you can still pick up a copy (although not for free) of Logicomix, the brand new graphic novel starring none other than Bertrand Russell!
