If you like comic books, you need to know about this event going on today only in the Capital Region.Its not one of those buy a comic book, get a comic book free types of events either. This has been going on for years. You literally walk into a shop that recognizes free comic book day and walk out with a comic book in hand. Although you may not walk out with anything super coveted, you will walk out with a specially printed book.

I find it odd that this event takes place on Cinco De Mayo, although it's not usually on the fifth day of May. It is always on the first Saturday of May.

This adds a whole nother thing to do today, Kentucky Derby, Empire's second home game, Cinco De Mayo and now free comic book day.
