May 7 is Free Comic Book day! Six million comics are up for grabs in over 2300 stores across the country. Here's where you can get your fix in Las Vegas:
Action Comics and Games will be offering free comics, 25 cent and $1 comics, along with big sales on tabletop games and geek accessories. Make sure you're there around 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. - Spiderman will be visiting, and free hotdogs will be available.
Local artists Joyce Hedlund, Jean Marie Munson, Ed Nesmith and Donovan Peterson will be offering free sketches, and Zombie Dogs will have a food truck at the event. Everyone who enters the store will be given a raffle ticket to win an adorable Deadpool painting by Nancy Brown.
In addition to giving out free comics, Cosmic Comics will also be holding a Mega Raffle for Batman Adventures #12. The special issue marks the first appearance of Harley Quinn in comics. Raffle tickets are $25 each, with extra tickets given out to those who cosplay as a member of the Suicide Squad, and for those who line up to get into the store before 9 a.m.
Sadly, Hellpop will be closing its location at the Arts Factory. Their last day is Free Comic Book Day, so be sure to pay them a visit before they're gone!
All four locations will be handing out free comic books for all ages from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Local artists will also be doing free sketches, and some of your favorite comic book characters will be hanging out in costume to take pictures. Each location will have a store-wide sale.
