Free Comic Book Day, Saturday, May 1, 2010
Free Comic Book Day is Saturday, May 1, 2010 and whether your a kid or a kid at heart you’ll want to stop by your local comic book store to get a free comic book and enjoy the festivities. In fact, you could make it an inexpensive birthday outing for the birthday boy or girl.
Our local comic book store, Atomic Comics, puts on a big celebration with Comic Creators on hand to draw sketches for fans. This year Atomic Comics is offering free artist sketches to kids 10 and under. For those older than 10, the sketches are $10. Proceeds from the sketches will benefit the Hero Initiative.
Here are some sketches my Godzilla obsessed son asked to have drawn at Atomic Comics Godzillafest and then at the Free Comic Book Day in 2008. It was well worth the small donation to see the smile on his face.
