Do you like superhero movies?
Do you like comics?
Do you want free comics?
Do you like stories with awesome artwork and plots?
Are you free on Saturday 7th of May?
If you have answered yes to any or all of these questions, then you must read on.
This year marks a decade of free comic book day, and it is exactly what the name implies, free comic books for all. The whole aim of this day is to help kids learn to read, become enthusiastic about reading, and promoting the industry that bought us movies such as Spider-man, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, and the upcoming Captain America.
Publishers such as Marvel and DC will release titles just for this day, the selection of comics available for free comic book day can be seen HERE.
Now you can go to any comic book store on Saturday 7 May, but I highly recommend you to go to All Star Comics Melbourne (ASCM), as it is a new store I personally know that they will have the best comic book day because I have seen ASCM owners Mitch and Troy go all out on previous free comic book days when they were working in the comic book industry before they opened ASCM.

If you live too far just go to your closest comic book shop.
