Mark McKenna, Bob Almond, and more sign on Saturday, May 1st. That’s Entertainment in Worcester, MA joins with thousands of comic book shops around the world to celebrate the unique American art form that is comic books. The day has been dubbed “Free Comic Book Day,” and its goal is to introduce as many people to the wonders of comic books as possible.
When you visit That’s Entertainment on May 1st, you will find a great variety of free comics. There are comics for children, for families to enjoy together, for adults, and especially for people who think they would never read a comic book.
Unlike video stores, bookstores, and movie theaters, comic book stores are usually independently owned and operated, with no national chains dominating the market. As a result, each store is as individual as its owner, a celebration of the incredible diversity in the comic book field. Those who think comic books are “just for kids” or “old-fashioned” will be pleasantly surprised by the broad range of reading material available at their local comic book store.
Regular updates, information about comic books, and lists of participating publishers (and their comics) are all online at the FCBD website.
