Free Comic Book Day

CORPUS CHRISTI - Saturday is free comic book day!

Fans lined up at three local stores today. The first Saturday in May is free comic book day nationwide, and hundreds came to Collectors Planet on McArdle to find their perfect comic book or favorite toy.

In addition to the giveaways, for retailers, it's a way to give back.

"Free comic book day has two goals, one is to introduce the readers and the collectors to new writers and new artists, and second, probably first and foremost I should say, is the gathering of families, to come together and select the books, the superheroes they like, and just kinda hang out," said Texas Toyz owner, David De La Cruz.

The bloodmobile was also on hand to encourage people to be a superhero themselves and give blood. The event goes on till seven.
