6 Spots To Let Your Nerd Hang Out For Free Comic Book Day

Your guide to the sweetest comic book shops in the city.

It’s that magic time of year again. That one special day where adult men with suspect fashion sense and strong ideas on what the word ‘canonical’ means, descend on their local comic book stores and retailers. It’s a day that separates the true fan nerds from your run of the mill, super caj’ (that’s how the cool folk say ‘casual’), I-just-really-like-the-movies-mmk, poser nerds. That’s right everybody, Free Comic Book Day is this weekend. So dust off your nicest looking Punisher bowling shirt and practice that judgemental scoff in the mirror, it’s time to put some newbs in their place and load up on all those trade issues that are missing from your collection. I for one will be filling out my Straczynski/Romita Jr. run of Amazing Spider-Man (I am literally missing two trades and it has been killing me on the inside). Here’s a list of best shops in the city to get your nerd on.
