Gods & Monsters says
Join us in celebrating FREE COMIC BOOK DAY on Saturday May 7th! There will be artists and vendors set up, workshops, special sales and family-friendly entertainment going all day and night till we close at 12am!

As the name implies, Free Comic Book Day is a single day when participating comic book specialty shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their shops. Comic books are an original American art form, created in the early days of the twentieth century. They are fun to read, featuring a wide range of diverse story lines that capture the imagination of the readers. That's worth celebrating in our book!

Go here to see a list of the comics being given out this year: http://www.freecomicbookday.com/Home/1/1/27/981
