I may not actively collected comic books anymore, but I love visiting the local comic shops on Free Comic Book Day because the kids have a blast. Some comic shops go all out with freebies and costumed characters, making for a terrific family outing. Here’s a picture from the Laughing Ogre comic shop in Fairfax, Virginia from a couple of years ago…
My son was thrilled to get that giant foam Wolverine claw, and still plays with it today.
If you have kids, I’d highly recommend visiting a comic shop tomorrow. And while you’re there, be sure to buy something to help support the local business–those comics may be free to you, but the shop has to pay for them.
