So besides this weekend being the US opening of The Avengers, this Saturday is also Free Comic Book Day -- and I can barely contain my nerdgasmic joy! 

Free Comic Book Day is an annual event to get people into comic shops around the country.  Publishers put out special books which are usually great jumping on points for new readers that the retailers give away.  It's not all superheroes and capes either (not that I see anything wrong with that).  There are Peanuts, Yo Gabba Gabba, Star Wars, Buffy, and my personal favorite: Adventure Time comics to be had.

Participating stores can have different rules, but the one I go to allows you to take 5 free comics per person.  To find the store nearest you, go to http://www.freecomicbookday.com .  If you go, go early because the stores have limited supplies.
