WOLVERINE SAYS: GET YOUR FREE COMICS!

Free comics, including stories of Wolverine and Green Lantern, will be available at comic book stores throughout the world on Saturday, May 2.

Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman, encourages fans to visit local comic book stores in a YouTube video from Diamond Comics Distributors.

"Now, we all know comic books are fun," Jackman says in the video.
"But they're also a really fantastic way to captivate the attention of young readers, and send them off on a lifelong love of reading."

These comic-book heroes don't just battle villains, they battle illiteracy.

"Help join the fight against illiteracy, and recommend to kids to just go into a comic book store, and grab their free comic," Jackman says.

The Comics Professional Retail Organization (ComicsPRO), the independent comic book retailers trade association, encourages readers of all ages to experience the diversity of entertainment found in comics by visiting a participating member store on Free Comic Book Day.

About 2 million free comic books are expected to be given away at more than 2,000 participating locations. Comics to be given away include Disney/Pixar's Cars, Archie, Star Wars, and G.I. Joe.

In the Hudson Valley, these comics can be found at:

Main Street Comics
157 Dolson Ave
Middletown, NY 10940
845-342-0458

COMMENTING FEES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
