We all know what time is coming up: Free Comic Book Day! Same as every year (well, except for the first few years they had it), the first Saturday in May (and this year it’s May 1st) is the happiest day in a comic book living person’s life! This year we’ve got more comic books than ever, for a wide range of interests. This year we’ll have 28 books that will be given away, one per title per customer (yes, that’s right, you can take up to 28 unique Free Comics!) and they are:
ARCHIES SUMMER SPLASH, ARTIFACTS FIRST LOOK, BONGO COMICS FREE FOR ALL, DOCTOR SOLAR MAGNUS ROBOT HUNTER, FRACTURED FABLES, GREEN HORNET, IRREDEEMABLE #1, KIZOIC SHREK & PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR, MOUSE GUARD FRAGGLE ROCK FLIP BOOK, SIXTH GUN #1, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG HIDE SEEK DESTROY #1, STUFF OF LEGEND & MORTAL INSTRUMENTS

In addition to the Free Comics, we’ll also be running our biggest sale of the year: 25% Off everything in the Store! Yup, free stuff and an awesome sale, you can’t beat that! OH WAIT, YES WE CAN! We’ll also have 50% Off all of our Back Issue Comics and 50% off select clearance graphic novels, many of which will be hitting clearance for the first time that day! Yes, that’s half off! Yes, I am in fact that serious!
I’m not even going to do the whole “Oh hey, that’s it” thing and then go “BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE,” because there is more and I’m not going to sit here and be disingenuous when it comes to Free Comic Book Day. We will, as always, have our loyal troops in uniform: the 501st Storm Trooper Legion, led by Lord Vader himself. This year we’ll also have artists in the shop drawing, selling sketches and doing commissions, including Rusty Shackles, of Comic Alliance.com fame and Oni Press’ Resurrection series. Rusty has also set us up with a whopper of FCBD promo, the Avengers “Getting the Band Back Together” image, celebrating the return of the classic line-up of Avengers in this May’s Avengers #1. For every $50 you spend, you’ll be able to get this commemorative tour shirt, a retail value of $19.99, for FREE while supplies last.
When you put all of these together, I don’t think you’ll be able to find a better Free Comic Day around. That’s right kids: Super-Fly Comics & Games: A Free Comic Book Day you can believe in!
