Online comic book retailer Heavy Ink is celebrating Free Comic Book Day… and if you have the internet, you’re invited! Those shopless among us, or unable to visit their local comick booke establishment on the fateful day (which is tomorrow, Saturday, May 1st), but who still want to snag a free comic or three such as Atomic Robo & Friends, Iron Man/Thor, Toy Story, Mouse Guard/Fraggle Rock, Atomic Robo & Friends, Bongo Comics, Doctor Solar/Magnus Robot Fighter, Atomic Robo & Friends, Irredeemable/Incorruptible, Green Hornet, The Tick, Owly, Atomic Robo & Friends, etc., look no further!
Full details under the cut.
Here’s the email I got from Heavy Ink:
Free Comic Book Day is this Saturday, May 1st. This year we’re going to
try something crazy: we’re going to give away thousands of comics
on-line, at our website:
The festivities start at 10 AM EST, and we’ll be giving away a different
title every 10-15 minutes. There are around 30 different titles, so
we’ll be giving away comics for most of the day. Iron Man, Stuff of
Legend, Atomic Robo, Mouse Guard, Green Hornet…
Please tell your comic-loving friends! Forward this email, or share in
forums or on blogs. Thanks for helping get the word out!
