Free Comic Book Day: May 4
On Saturday May 4, 2013, zoom into any participating comic book store and walk out with a FREE comic! (Possibly more – retailers vary on how many free comics they’ll give away, but you’re guaranteed at least one.)
In Albuquerque, a slew of comic book shops are taking part, including Astro-Zombies, Lobo Anime & Comics, The Comic Warehouse, Kaboom Test Labs, Don’s Paperback Books, and Hastings Entertainment.
Use the Free Comic Book Day store locator to find the store nearest you.
Some shops may also host special events. For example, at Astro-Zombies, they’ll have a sidewalk sale starting at 11 am, and comic artists Aaron Campbell (The Dark Shadow, Green Hornet, and Sherlock Holmes) and Tim Seeley (G.I. Joe) will be there from 12 noon for signings and to meet the crowd. The store is located at 3100 Central Avenue SE.
It might be wise to arrive earlier rather than later at any of the participating Albuquerque comic book stores, in case all the freebies run out!
The Free Comic Book Day free comic giveaway takes place just once a year, on the first Saturday in May.
