Today is free comic book day across the US!

7 posts in this topic

Anyone else have stores participating in this? I just got back from my local comic shop where they gave away 5 free! I got a few old manga titles: Crying Freeman, Lodoss War, and Star Blazers!

If you wanna know more there is a free comic book day FB page you can look up. :bingo:

The last time I went to a free comic book day it was only based on certain generic titles.

So I skipped going to it this year.

Aside from that I'm going to cut down on comics once Deadpool is Dead.

I just can't take Daniel Way's writing anymore.

Almost all the stores give away old unwanted comics. I never find anything I WANT, but I always come away with something interesting. Free comic day in my area comes with gaming, events, and sales at my local shop. Last year they had a comic/anime costume contest.

Is Dead pool the only comic you read? I don't think you should give up on comics altogether. There are plenty of amazing comics with equally amazing artists that need our support!

Part of what waters down "Free Comic Book Day" for me is also the fact Marvel is bound every few months or so to release a free comic. Last free comic I got in April was about The Avengers & their children from the future.

As for giving up on comics, its nothing I'd stick to unless nothing I want comes out. I just like my comics in a particular way.

I could go from Deadpool to say Spider-Man. But I don't like being preached to that "With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility". And maybe I could substitute Lobo for Superman. But I'd probably get tired of the Man Boy Scout that Superman is.

Or if there was no chance I'd ever buy a comic book again there's always lots of Free Web Comics. In fact I think I read a lot of Free Web Comics. They make up most of the comics I read on a monthly basis.

I also use to follow some fan fics. I may eventually return on reading (or watching) some although in the case of one fan fic I was sick about hearing of Star Wars when I originally followed it for Deadpool.

Well it makes sense from your point of things. I don't really have any one type of comic that I read. I read manga and american comics equally. I don't have one fandom that I focus on. I'm not so much a fan of the comic, so much as a fan of the art and story. I see free comic day as a day I can get something I wouldn't normally spend money on, and take the chance it might be something I like. Then I can go back and get more. I go mainly to support the comic. As an artist, and a lover of the printed word, I see the death of comics coming. It makes me sad. I for one plan to fight to the end!
