Free Comic Book Day is the perfect opportunity for you and your family to discover the timeless wonderment that is the comic book.
With The Avengers movie coming up interest is high in comic books and what better way to discover comics than with a few FREE issues?
If you used to collect comics as a kid heres your chance to pick up a few free issues and rekindle the spark that got you into comics in the first place.
Bring your kids and expose them to the world of comic books, what kid wouldn't like a free comic book?
Lastly, if you do collect comics and you haven't been to Queen City Bookstore yet, you need to stop by and check out the best Comic shop in the city of Buffalo, Queen City Bookstore. Queen City is located at 3184 Main St. They have tons of back issues, new issues, T-shirts, posters, graphic novels and comic collecting supplies, like comic book bags and collector boxes.
