Free Comic Book Day

This Saturday is Free Comic Day.

You just walk in and pick up your free comics. It's a great way to get a couple of free reads. Of course the plan (like any addictive substance) is that you'll get hooked and keep coming back for more.

I put a picture of one of the free comics on the side here in case, for instance, you happened to be looking at BHR one day and your son (who is too young to watch Spider-Man) happened to see pictures of Jesus and Spider-Man together and tried to convince you that meant he should be allowed to watch it. Now you can go get this comic FOR FREE and then hand it over.

NOTE TO PARENTS: If you have young kids, I'd suggest you read the comics before giving them to your kids. I personally always liked it when my dad read my comics. Now if I find a good one I let him read it when I'm done.

ANOTHER NOTE: If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area be sure to head over to Flying Colors Comics (my former workplace) to snag your free comics, and be sure to say hello to all my buddies there.


  1. Cheater on the Greek!! Although those translators are good to have. Thanks for the info..I'm going to see if there is a comic book place here in SC.. Maybe t will be into it too. (I'm not holding my breath on that one.) Thanks for backpacker magazine!!!! We both appreciate that!

  2. Take todd with you because then you can get twice as many free comics, even if he doesn't want to read them.

  3. Love this!

    N is still trying to get me to let him see Spiderman 2. At least he's persistent and knows what he wants.
