The 9th annual Free Comic Book Day is being held this Saturday, May 1 and we're expecting another great turnout. Besides all the free comics being given away we'll have balloons and face painting for the kids (or kids at heart) and appearances by some of the coolest comic book characters (rumor is there will be a Star Wars invasion and the Dark Knight and guests will be invading Lewisville). The greatness of Jimmy Johns (their Round Grove location in Lewisville) will be handing out samples of their awesome sandwiches! We will be running a sale on graphic novels and board games! And of course FREE COMICS!!
Boomerang Comics store hours for the event will be 10am - 6pm so plan your day accordingly. Bring your friends, family and casual acquaintances. We'll see y'all there!
