    It's here in quebec at least. We've been doing Free Comic Book day for a couple of years now.

    Turns out there's even more than that.

    Find out if anywhere near you is doing this:

    Even includes locations not in N.A.

    I would go since there is a place around the corner, but I'm too lazy to walk there, don't wanna carry a ton of comics home, and I have tons from last year that I haven't read yet.

    Well, I went to the library on May 1st, and saw some Free Comic Books, but didn't bother taking some or one because I'm not really interested in comic books ._. Though, I do like reading Manga and Adventure-y novels.
