It was only a year ago we all raided theaters to see the opening weekend of The Avengers.  Now another year has passed and the next Avengers film is opening with Iron Man 3.  And Star Wars uber-fans will be getting together to celebrate May the Fourth–Galactic Star Wars Day.  And everyone who reads comic books will be taking friends to their local comic book store for all kinds of parties around the globe for Free Comic Book Day.

We’ve chatted about Free Comic Book Day before here at borg.com.  It’s always fun and the best stores will even have cake for those not enticed enough by the free comic books.  If you haven’t browsed a comic book store recently check out this link for a comic book store near you.  Also check out the Free Comic Book Day website for more details of events being held in every state like comic book writers and artists attending to autograph books and create sketches for fans.

Here are covers to some key titles to keep a look out for:

FCBD DC Comics 2013  FCBD Dark Horse 2013

FCBD Dynamite Grimm 2013  FCBD Steampunk Oz 2013

FCBD 2013 Judge Dredd  FUBAR FCBD 2013

FCBD MouseGuard 2013  FCBD Walking Dead 2013

Get there early as not all titles may be available in quantities for everyone to get what they are after, especially The Walking Dead issue.  (Someone save me a Grimm please?)
