Free Comic Book Day on Saturday

May 04, 2012|By Dave Rosenthal

There must be some sort of cosmic alignment this weekend, because just as "The Avengers" movie is released, Free Comic Book Day is upon us. I don't read comics often anymore, but I have fond memories of my parents buying a bunch for me and my sister for our two-hour family trips from Connecticut to New York. I was a super-hero fan; she leaned toward Archie. We sometimes read while curled up on the floor of the family's massive Chevrolet, in the pre-seatbelt days. (Don't try this at home.)

If you need a fix of primary colors, here are some places to stop by Saturday for Free Comic Book Day. (No guarantee you'll walk away with Flash.)

-- Atomic Books, 3620 Falls Road, Baltimore.

-- Amazing Spiral, 711 West 40th Street, Rotunda Mall, Baltimore.

-- Shananigans Toy Shop, 5004-B Lawndale Avenue, Baltimore.

-- Gorilla King Comics, 1711 Aliceanna Street, Baltimore.

-- Alliance Comics, 904 Light Street, Baltimore. 

-- Legends Games & Comics, 1220 E. Joppa Road, Towson.

And don't forget, Saturday also is the day for donating new and gently used books to the  Baltimore Reads book bank.
