Saturday, May 6. Its’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s Free Comic Book Day! And the good news is, our Area is well-endowed with three independent comic book stores.

Little Shop of Comics
With a line out the door, and costumed heroes strolling about, a festive atmosphere awaits. Batman himself is expected to make an appearance.
387 Park Avenue, Scotch Plains

Wildpig Comics
Days of preparation help make the trip to Wildpig worthwhile, including sales on their extensive back issue stock.
14 South Michigan Avenue, Kenilworth

Rogue Comics & Collectibles
Come for the Comics, stay for the cadre of collectibles, figures and t-shirts.
105 North Union Avenue, Cranford

Free Comic Book Day takes place on the first Saturday in May and is a promotional effort by the North American comic book industry to help bring new readers into comic book shops.
