Free Comic Book Day on Saturday May 5th

Today we're highlighting the favorite day of comic book fans everywhere: Free Comic Book Day.

http://www.freecomicbookday.com explains it best: "Free Comic Book Day is a single day - the first Saturday in May each year - when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE* to anyone who comes into their stores. *Check with your local shop for their participation and rules."

Free Comic Book Day is a great way for anyone interested in comic books to enjoy the hobby. For people who have always loved comic books, it's a great time to add to your collection and branch out into new comics. For people who have never read even a single comic book, it's a great time to dive into and enjoy this awesome media that has existed for decades and decades and spawned amazing followings and events, like Ratha Con!

Free Comic Book Day this year is on May 5th, and we here at Ratha Con would like to urge you to look for local venues giving away comics. After all, without comics, we might not even have comic conventions, and who could bear the thought of what kind of world that would be. So get out there on May 5th and find some new comics to enjoy. We'll see you there.
