May 3rd, 2008 marks Free Comic Book Day, the day when special issues from virtually every publisher in the biz—from giants like Marvel and DC to indie stalwarts like Top Shelf and Fantagraphics—are made available free of charge, courtesy of your local comics specialty retailer. How many comics each customer can walk home with varies by store, so be sure to contact your local retailer. For a list of available comics or to locate a participating retailer near you, visit
