Free Comic Book Day 2022 on May 7

by Donna Ryder

Mark your calendars! The 21st annual Free Comic Book Day is slated for Saturday, May 7, 2022. We can get a free comic book that day at participating locations and this year they'll have even more freebies with color coded labels to distinguish between All Ages, Teen, and Mature comics.

So mark your calendar and pick up a free issue for the … kids at home? Suuuuuure, let's pretend it's not for you and say it's for the little ones.

It's been years since I've read comic books. I even tried drawing my own once. It didn't have many super heroes, but starred a kid who refused to eat his vegetables, couldn't talk to girls, and looked ridiculous in his baggy jeans. I guess it wasn't so much a comic book as a journal. No wonder Marvel never took me seriously.

To make matters worse, I harshly learned on a recent date that comic books aren't an appropriate answer to “what have I read lately?” Suffice to say, there wasn't a second date.
