Our pal Mike Wellman over at The Comic Bug comic shop in Manhattan Beach sat down with Elephantmen creator Richard Starkings to make a video to preview the dozens of amazing FREE comics being made available at Free Comic Book Day on Saturday, May 3rd, 2014.
Whether you’re hanging out around the beach cities of Los Angeles or not on May 3rd, the video above is useful for anyone looking for more information on the titles that will be available on Free Comic Book Day. Some titles are in limited supply and there are some retailers that only allow so many free comics per customer, so this extensive preview will give you everything you need to know to pick the ones you’ll enjoy most.
For those of you who didn’t already know, comic shops from around the country open their doors on the first Saturday of May every year to hand out free comics to the masses. Shops like the Comic Bug usually have lines around the block that day, as regulars and new fans gather to get free sketches from comic creators, take advantage of special discounts, meet their favorite costumed superheroes, and of course, get some free comics!
