Free Comic Book Day   
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. Find a participating store here. (There are two currently listed in our area.) In our past experience there has been a table of all the available free books and you pick which ones you want. There are special editions of comics printed specifically for Free Comic Book Day. FYI: not all of the comics are what I personally consider to be kid-friendly so I always look through them first before we pick them up or before  the kids look at them. Some are obviously kid-friendly, though. You can actually take a peek at the comics that will be available at this site. I know my 11 year old will really like the Transformers and TMNT ones!
