Free Comic Book Day LA 2013 May 4

Free Comic Book Day descends into our fair city this Saturday with multiple comic stores giving out free comics and promotional items. It's great for comic fans for the signings, great for the little ones to try out some kid-friendly comics and it's all free. Special sales and activities will be at multiple shops.
