ComicBookDayThe first Saturday of May is Free Comic Book Day all over the country.  Families can find the closest participating comic book store HERE. Each year participating stores feature different free sample comic books from various publishers. I love comic books, just because I love comic books. They can also be nice lead ins to books. In the past, we have been able to find a comic book to go with our favorite books or to encourage a new book.

Local artists sometimes have their own comic books for sale during Free Comic Book Day.  Just like with books, it is always fun to get comic books with a local tie-in and an autograph from someone you could run into at the grocery store.

Like local bookstores, comic book stores tend to be locally-owned businesses that have to fight against the ease of internet sales. While I certainly enjoy being able to order something when I want it and have it delivered to my door, I’m also aware that shopping locally keeps a little more money in our local economy.

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 6, 4 and 1. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and full-time stay-at-home dad. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the Twin Cities with kids. I couldn’t be happier.
