The OC Guide To Free Comic Book Day 2014
You can't argue with the word free; all across the country, comic book stores will be offering free comics to customers sent in from major and independent comic publishers, and some of the big titles this year for giveaways are Teen Titans, Guardians of the Galaxy, Adventure Time, The Simpsons and Archie. But no two stores are created equal, so each stop will be offering something different. So behold the scoop of events and deals going down this year at some of our county's finest shops. Ka-Pow!
