Zounds! ‘Tis Free Comic Book Day, when younglings and olds alike descend upon their local comic book merchants in search of the only nourishment that will slake their savage geek thirst: MOAR COMIC BOOKS.
But despite the feeding frenzy focused on the wonder secreted in the pages of these paper treasures, Free Comic Book Day is actually a sweet moment for many families when friends and family get to unapologetically share their collective guilty pleasure.
No, this isn’t the day to haggle over a rare issue of an obscure superhero series, or eye the comic book shop owner suspiciously as she darts into the back room where they keep “the good stuff.”
Nope, today is just about sharing the love of comic books, and we managed to find a number of moments on social media that capture that warm and fun sentiment.
But hark! There are still hours yet left to pillage your nearby purveyor of comic paraphernalia. We beseech you, if you haven’t already darkened the door of a comic book shop today, let these images inspire you to action.
