Free Comic Book Day is this Saturday (May 4), and is a national event that provides retailers a lot of awesome comics, from a variety of publishers, that they can give away for free.There are three Spokane area stores participating this year - Merlyns, The Comic Book Shop, and Hastings.
Local artists will be at Merlyns both Saturday and Sunday, drawing free sketches for kids. There will be plenty of other events going on at the store both days, including the book release party for local creator Manny Trembley's new all-ages graphic novel Martin Monsterman!
Manny will be extra busy this weekend, as in addition to the release party, he'll be one of the artists drawing free sketches at Merlyns on Saturday, and will be at Tafuri Studios in the Garland district on Friday, drawing free monster sketches for their First Friday event.
