Free Comic Book Day

Yes, conveniently scheduled to coincide with the opening of Iron Man (which was surprisingly good by the way) today is Free Comic Book Day, and it is really nice to actually see so many libraries participating.  It’s still not enough but this year is a huge improvement.  This has been an annual event since ’02, and has always tied into a major film release.  So essentially it’s a day to give out free reading materials to children with a lot of free publicity.  How could you go wrong except by ignoring it.

And for those who might want to work on building up a comic collection, you could do a lot worse than to work off the top 100 comic runs that was just put together by the readers of the comics should be good forum.  There are a few notable absences (Steranko’s Nick Fury, Englehart’s Captain America), but all in all this could be an excellent collection development tool.
