This weekend, comics fans will get the chance to celebrate their love for the literary art at local stores in observance of Free Comic Book Day. The celebration – which dates back to 2002 – was started to help bring new readers into independent comic book stores. Local shops and libraries across the city and county will observe the event and offer visitors free comics.

Apotheosis Comics & Lounge will host a free event Saturday, May 4 that'll include meet-and-greets with professional comic book artists, live music and lots of comic book giveaways.
