I think most kids (especially boys) grew up loving comic books. I know I did. They were available at a dozen stores in my neighborhood growing up, were very inexpensive and were our escape from reality, whether it was the Marvel superheroes or Archie and his gang.

All these years later and the comic book is not only still viable, but thriving, and stores across the country will celebrate Comic Book Day on Saturday (May 3) by handing out free comics to anyone who comes in and asks for one.

You can find a list of participating comic book shops at FreeComicBookDay.com
