Free Comic Book Day May 5

Celebrate American art form, independent local stores

Just a day after the Avengers assemble into theaters, readers can get a free copy of another adventure of the team at local comic shops. Iron Man, Thor and Captain America will re-assemble in a free “Avengers” comic book. And that’s not all.

Free comics, featuring characters ranging from Superman to Charlie Brown, will be available at comic book stores throughout the world on Saturday, May 5th.

Comic books are an original American art form, created in the early days of the 20th century. They are fun to read, featuring a wide range of diverse storylines that capture the imagination of the readers.

Millions of free comic books are expected to be given away at more than 2,000 participating locations. This is the 11th year for Free Comic Book Day, which was created by retailer Joe Field.

Field is also president of comics retailer association ComicsPRO.

"With more than 3.5 million comics available worldwide for the giveaway on Free Comic Book Day 2012, this is the perfect opportunity to experience all the great stuff going on in comics at your locally owned independent comic book specialty store,” Field said. “Your comics retailer is your guide to The Next Big Thing in pop culture!"

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.

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.
