Comics on the House

comment
Wednesdays are new-comic-book day, but this Saturday, May 5th, is Free Comic Book Day.

The industry-induced giveaway is in its 6th year. Millions of specially produced, no-charge comics are handed out at independent comic-book dealers around the world. In Memphis, participating stores include Comics & Collectibles at 4730 Poplar #2, Animax at 4435 Summer, and Comic Cellar Cards, Comics, & Games at 4728 Yale.

Comics & Collectibles will be hosting a few local comic-book creators in honor of the day. Lin Workman will sign copies of his Bushi Tales and Martheus and Janet Wade will sign issues of their Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Dean Zachary will be on hand from 1 to 4 p.m. with his new “pulp novel” American Twilight: The Eagle and the Dragon.

For more information on comic-store locations and titles given away, go to FreeComicBookDay.com.
