• Spider-Man Season One

Five years in and critics agree: Record Store Day has jumped the shark. Free Comic Book Day, however, is celebrating its tenth anniversary this Saturday, and spirits are as high as ever. Held on the first Saturday of May, Free Comic Book Day celebrates the comic shop, the comic creator, and the comic lover. There are a whole bunch of shops in Chicago taking part by giving away exclusive free books and hosting appearances by famed comic writers. This is probably the best time in years to get into comic books, so why not start by gripping some free shit?
