Welcome to the Legion!


It’s official! This coming May, after spending hours in line for Avengers: Age of Ultron, you’re going to be making a pilgrimage to all your local comic book stores. Diamond Comic Distributors has declared May 2, 2015 as the next Free Comic Book Day. Their selection committee picked the best 50 comics from DC Comics, Marvel, Archie, IDW, Dark Horse Comics, Image Comics and more for the event.

“Free Comic Book Day is the biggest and most anticipated event of the year for all comic book enthusiasts. It’s the perfect opportunity for new and devoted comic book, entertainment and pop-culture fans to get great comics for free, while participating in fun comic shop events,” said Free Comic Book Day Spokesperson Deborah Moreland. “Comic book shops see FCBD as a great way to show off their stores and help novice and veteran fans find stories they will love that not only entertain but enrich their lives. It’s also a great excuse for people to let their inner ‘geek’ out while having fun meeting like-minded people and exploring their local comic shop.”

Shops that participate often have events surrounding the day. Which comic book shop(s) are you guys heading over to?
