This weekend will be one for the books – comic books, that is. To celebrate the uber-popular genre, comic book stores will be giving away free books to anyone who walks through their doors.
The event takes place this Saturday, May 1 at participating comic book shops across North America and the world will hand out comics from a selection of 50 titles.
