Here's the deal. Once a year, the comic book industry gets together with your local comic shops to dish out a stack of free books in the hopes you will become completely addicted, as you should be. Unfortunately, more often than not, the only people who hit the shops on this day are the people who already collect the damn things. I INTEND TO FIX THAT!! I formerly dub May 7th "Nerd Raid Day." On this day, I would like you to take some time out of your vegging on the big comfy couch, gather your friends and hit your nearest comic shop. You can find one of those with the handy dandy COMIC SHOP LOCATOR, or if you are more advanced, you can hit the ultra modern yellow pages online. Some awesome shops are having special events for their celebration with special guests, people in costume and funfunfun for your kiddies, so call the shops and see if they are doing anything special. Here's a rundown of books you can score...
