Free Comic Book Day and other ways to spend a weekend.

The first Saturday in May each year is Free Comic Book Day. On this day, comic producers send special taster comics to comic book shops to give away for free... the idea is to get new people into reading comics and graphic novels. What usually happens is long queues of comic book fans queue up to pick up the taster for their favourite series, and try out some new series'.

Apart from living with two comic book fans, the Peter Grant books I've been reading, has two graphic novels which fit between books 4 and 5, and I've just started reading book 4, so, as we do every year, we went into Liverpool to visit the two big comic retailers there (Worlds Apart and Forbidden Planet) where we picked up some free comic books, and bought some others.
