Every year, comic book shops across America host Free Comic Book Day, an event that is almost chilling in its simplicity: Walk into a comics shop, walk out with a comic book.
A couple dozen special comics are published just for this giveaway, from Archie, Disney/Pixar’s Cars and Nancy to Love and Rockets, Star Wars and Wolverine. You can read more at www.freecomicbookday.com.
4 Color Fantasies in Rancho Cucamonga draws hundreds of fans to its event, with a line out the door and more activity in the parking lot.
Here’s the addresses of all the local stores participating. With Claremont’s Comic Bookie out of business, it’s an even shorter list than usual:
