Comic books want to be free

Posted By on Fri, Apr 30, 2010 at 12:34 PM

Apologies to all those who were planning on spending tomorrow standing around in thunderstorms, taking refresher courses in do-it-yourself brain surgery, or just
curling up with a Bertrand Russell tome on the history of Western philosophy.

All that will have to wait, because Saturday is Free Comic Book Day.

Following hot on the heels of April’s Record Store Day, the May 1 event continues an annual effort on the part of the comic book industry to promote independent comic shops.

Among the many special-edition free “funny books” — as the kids like to call ‘em — is a shiny new Marvel comic featuring Thor and Iron Man, just in time to get in the mood for Iron Man 2.

Unfortunately, the comic book debut of Kevin Keller, Archie Comics’ much-publicized gay character won’t be available until September. But the good news is that, while you’re there, you can still pick up a copy (although not for free) of Logicomix, the brand new graphic novel starring none other than Bertrand Russell!
