May 4 Is Free Comic Book Day
March 8, 2002
In case you haven't heard, there is a big, multi-company, national surge to attract comics to non-comic book readers. It is being dubbed Free Comic Book Day and is a coventure between Diamond Comic Book Distributors and many comic book companies. On May 4, individuals will be able to walk into their local comic shop and obtain comic books free of charge. No, this is not a gimmick. They are free. Period.
Thanks to a kindly reminder by my Diamond rep, Mr. Steve Leaf, I will be sending a box of comics for inclusion in Free Comic Book Day. This event is a major undertaking to bring new readers into our often-times niche addiction of comic book collecting. For more information on this extraordinary event, visit the Free Comic Book Day Web Site.
And, uh, Excelsior, I guess...
