Free Comic Book Day: Kevin Eastman

When: Sat., May 6, 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. 2017

Hooray! Hooray! Free Comic Book Day! The happiest day of the year! Sorry, I sing that every year. As usual, the first weekend in May brings a new superhero movie (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, reviewed on page 24) and a bunch of giveaway comics from major publishers. Many local shops have FCBD events on Saturday, including Capitol Comics, Foundation's Edge, Fight or Flight Comics, and Enterprise Comics in Raleigh and the three Ultimate Comics stores in Raleigh, Cary, and Durham. Ultimate Durham has the biggest draw, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cocreator Kevin Eastman. From 11 a.m. until 1:30 p.m., he'll sign two items for $25 (and you get a store-exclusive TMNT comic), with the proceeds supporting childhood cancer research. Of course, if you don't want to shell out for Eastman (see what we did there?), local creators like Tommy Lee Edwards and Richard Case will be available free of charge, as, of course, will a ton of great comics. —Zack Smith
