Free Comic Book Day
Saturday, May 3, 2014 is Free Comic Book Day. Participating comic book stores around the country offer free copies of select comics that have been prepared just for Free Comic Book Day.
There are three participating comic book shops in the Ann Arbor area: Vault of Midnight on Main Street in downtown Ann Arbor, Fun 4 All on Carpenter Rd between Target and Meijer, and Stadium Comics on Golfside in Ypsilanti.
Last year we attended Free Comic Book Day at Fun 4 All in their old location. They had a great selection even though we didn’t make it until the afternoon due to soccer. Vault of Midnight has extra activities planned for Free Comic Day including costumed characters, trivia contests, and more however they tend to have long lines. It is also UM Graduation Weekend which makes downtown more crowded as well.
Here is the video from last year’s Free Comic Book Day at Vault of Midnight:
