It’s a Big Comic Book Celebration!
Yes, Saturday, May 6, sees a celebration of the annual fannish event, Free Comic Book Day. Several stores throughout Albuquerque will be handing out free comic books and/or offering discounts on various comics, graphic novels, action figures and other materials.
For instance, we know that Astro-Zombies (Central Ave SE) starts their festivities at 10:00 am, including Sales on the Sidewalk and Inside. In 2014, A-Z gave out approximately 10,000 free comics. Over at Don’s Book Exchange (San Mateo SE), the store opens at 10:00 am for early birds – and the back warehouse will be open (10-5) along with markdowns of select merchandise. Plus a taco truck and other goodies! And Lobo Comics (Juan Tabo NE) will have a sidewalk sale, at least.
Be sure to check out the action at these known participants – Astro-Zombies, Lobo Comics, Don’s Book Exchange, Comic Warehouse, Old West Comics, Twin Suns, Shared Universe, Age of Comics, Big Adventure Comics (Santa Fe, next to the Jean Cocteau Cinema) and more.
Good luck hunting down free comics, special deals and in-store appearances!
