Just Waiting for Someone to Come Along
Update 5-7-11 Rocky here, took my son up to Apocalypse Comics to get some free comics and he loved it! Also scored a sweet Green Lantern Power Ring!
My son is four and today was the first time he has ever been to a comic book store. To say he was overwhelmed is a bit of an understatement! All his favorite things: toys, superheros and cartoons. There were a lot of families there bringing the kids out.
At Apocalypse they had a lot more than just the free comics to offer. They were also giving away all the different colored Power Rings, little toys, prints by local artists, book marks, posters and more.Free Comic Book day lasts till 5 p.m. -and until supplies last.
Check out the Free Comic Book Day event page for Corsair Comics on Facebook.
Enjoy the photos below!

All the Free Books! This year has a lot of titles for the younger kids this year.
Of course the Mystery Machine was there....
Yeah....I've been wanting one of these since I was a kid!
