Today is Free Comic Book Day
The first Saturday in May is Free Comic Book Day, and this year (2023), is falls on May 6th.
I never really was a big comic book reader, though I know many who are. My older brother had a huge collection when we were kids, and now, I have a son-in-law who is completely enthralled by them. I also have friends and colleague who write in the genre. This has all ignited my curiosity, helping me to discover aspects of the art form I really appreciate.
I think this observance is a great opportunity to not only celebrate the artistry of this genre, but to help introduce it to newbies, like me. Plus, it might bring a new literary medium to a reader struggling to find how to connect with the written word. There’s just so many reasons to enjoy today’s free fun!
