Now in its seventh year, Free Comic Book Day has proven to be a smashing success, spreading the word that comics are terrific reading. "Even if you have never picked up a comic book, stop into Earth 383 Comics and Games, because you never know what you will end up finding."
"We at Earth 383 want to spread the word that comics are alive and well in 2008," Franco continued. "Comic books and graphic novels are considered hip, hot and smart." Comic Books have propelled to the front ranks of pop culture, many being adapted into movies. Ironman hits the big screen on May 2nd, the day before Free Comic Book Day. "The first weekend of May is going to be a big day in the comic book world."
