Kids have always gravitated towards comics as a fun way to read. When I was growing up, Archie and his gang was popular. With the recent explosion of Manga and chapter books told with comics — think Captain Underpants and the Wimpy Kid book series — a whole new generation of young readers are appreciating this creative form of storytelling.
So to celebrate, comic book vendors across the country will be rolling out the red carpet to comic book enthusiasts. Saturday, May 2nd, is Free Comic Book Day. Comic book shops will be giving away free comic books. It’s a great chance for you to share your love of comics with your kids.
