Free Comic Book Day: May 2

Dr. Z
Just a reminder.  Free Comic Book Day is this weekend–the first Saturday in May.

It is an event–as cheesy as it may sound–a cultural event.

Last year, I had a great time standing outside of Half Price Used Books, going through cases of discounted comics.  The buyers were chatting, comparing findings, and offering advice.  (Nobody spotted me as the poser that I am.)  It was fun lingering, eavesdropping.   Lingering, though, was not tolerated.  I was expected and cajoled into participating.

Standing around paper boxes crammed with old comic books, I was a part of a community–excited to share its culture.
