A Great Weekend To Be A Geek!

This first weekend of May is really something for comic fans of the world. Not only did the Avengers movie premiere this Friday, but today we got treated to Free Comic Book Day as well!

For those who don't know, Free Comic Book Day was a project started in order to reinvigorate both old and new fans alike to the comic book medium. To do this, multiple publishers put out all kinds of titles, some new and some old/classic to bring back that spirit every year. The other thing that makes this great is that the age content ranges just as much as the genres themselves, so there is literally something for just about everybody here; even those who don't really read any comic books in this day and age. You've got titles from DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, Image, Fantagraphics, Viz, and many more big (and not so big) publishers.

I'd love to write an Avengers movie review (from the perspective of our loveable Deadpool of course!) and talk about the free comics that came out this year. I'm trying to decide whether to make mini-reviews for each book I read, or simply write a top 5 with little descriptions of each. I'll gladly take suggestions for either at the moment.

All in all, I hope everyone else is having as fun of a weekend as I am, and that you can all share in the joys of these activities with me too. Keep reading for more very soon. :)
