"Free Comic Book Day has proven to be a smashing success, spreading the word that comics are terrific reading. Even if you have never picked up a comic book, stop into Detroit Comics, because you never know what you will end up finding. We will have independent creator Christian Slade of Korgi and Paul Storrie of My Boyfriend is a Monster, as well as facepainting for the kids.”

"We at Detroit Comics want to spread the word that comics are alive and well in 2011," Kelly continued. "Comic books and graphic novels are considered hip, hot and smart.” Comic Books have propelled to the front ranks of pop culture, many being adapted into movies. Thor is being released on May 6th and is expected to be highly anticipated after Free Comic Book Day. “The first weekend of May is going to be a big day in the comic book world.”

"When this event first started in 2002 it hit us like a lightning bolt." says Dan Merritt, co-owner of Green Brain Comics "Free Comic Book Day was the greatest idea we had ever heard and we loved it!" Since the first Free Comic Book Day, Green Brain Comics has given away tens of thousands of comics each year and hosted almost as many people in their store. This year over three dozen different titles will be available, many of them family friendly. And each visitor that day can choose three of them, just for coming in. While supplies last. There will also be ways for you to get more Free Comic Book Day comics. More about that in a minute.
