Free Comic Book Day

When: Sat., May 4 2013

Hooray! Hooray! Free Comic Book Day! The happiest day of the year! Yes, once more it is that magical time when comic book shops give out free samples provided by comic book companies in hopes of bringing new customers to this wonderful medium we call sequential art! Highlights this year include a Walking Dead special, featuring an original story from the hit-comic-turned-bigger-hit TV series; Prince Valiant, reprinting two classic Hal Foster stories from the seminal adventure strip; Sonic the Hedgehog, with Charlotte's Ian Flynn scripting the video game legend; the family-friendly Top Shelf Kids Club; and local comics studio Action Lab Entertainment's Molly Danger/Princeless, featuring all-ages girl-powered heroes. The Action Lab crew, along with a host of other Free Comic Book Day participants and local creators, will appear at Durham's Ultimate Comics at 10 a.m.; other local shops planning giveaways include Chapel Hill Comics, Atomic Empire and Capitol Comics in Durham, and Foundation's Edge in Raleigh. —Zack Smith
