Yup, you read that correctly – FREE comic book day is almost here! On Saturday, May 5, Dr. No’s Comics & Games store in Marietta will participate in the yearly “Free Comic Book Day” event. Stop by the store anytime on Saturday to pick up a free comic book from one of the many different publishers who support this day, including DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, Bongo, Image, and many more. There will be comic books available for all ages, so the whole family is encouraged to come out and celebrate the event with Dr. No’s. The store will be open regular hours from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m.
Not only will you get a free comic at this event, but Dr. No’s is hosting four comic industry legends: Mark Bagley, Paul Jenkins, Joseph Michael Linsner, and Tom Feister! They will be at the store from noon until 2 p.m. If a free comic book and visiting with comic book greats isn’t enticing enough for you, there will also be superhero models sponsored by Rogue Hair Studio from noon until 2 p.m. Rogue (Amanda Zimmerman), Black Canary (Laura Jorgensen), Byarkuren (Sarah Bryant), and hair studio owner Melissa Meacham as her fabulous self (and possibly Batwoman) will be hanging out, rockin’ rockstar hair, and modeling! There will be giveaways and photos opportunities as well.
Free Comic Book Day happens on the first Saturday in May each year as participating comic book shops around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE to anyone who visits there store. (Check with your local comic book shop for participation and rules.)
