Your complete guide to Free Comic Book Day

Free Comic Book Day is going down this Saturday, and for many people around town, that means venturing into a comic book store for the first time. We understand that can be a terrifying experience, but don't worry, we've got you covered: If you happen to run into a trademark "Comic Book Guy," all you need to do is curl up in a ball and agree with him, and hopefully he'll spare you a scorning, thirty minute diatribe on the virtues of Matt Fraction's Thor series. After that, you should be in the clear and ready to enjoy a ton of different activities, grab some free comics and meet tons of local and national artists. If you don't know where to go, don't worry. We've got you covered on that front too.
