Free Comic Book Day!

Free Comic Book Day is approaching on Saturday, May 2nd--and we have plenty of reasons for you to mark the date on your calendar!

First off, we have some wonderful books, including all-ages-friendly comics, Blackest Night #0, an Avengers special that pits the team against the Dark Avengers, and much more. There's stuff for newcomers, for long-time fans, for collectors... there really is something for everyone!

Second, we have some great guests joining us for a little while that day. Mark Bagley, artist of Trinity and the man who drew more issues of Spider-Man than any other illustrator, will be on hand. So will Brian Reed, writer of Ms. Marvel, Timestorm 2009-2099, the upcoming Sinister Spider-Man series, and much more. And Dean Motter, creator of Mister X and writer/illustrator of the latest Mister X series for Dark Horse, will be here as well. That's three great creators--and you can say hello and get their autographs between noon at 1:30 pm on Saturday!

Third, our backstock sale will still be going on. We're running 25% on all boxed backstock, with 35% off for purchases over $100 (before discount) and 45% off for purchases over $200 (before discount). What a great time to fill in holes in your collection.

Fourth, we've just launched our "buy two get one free" sale on hundreds of manga titles. Check 'em out!

And fifth, for those of you who are gaming fans, we're having a sneak peek event for the latest YuGiOh series that day. $20 gets you five packs of the new release, Raging Battle, more than a week before the rest of the world has a chance to buy it!

That's Saturday, May 2nd--don't miss it!
