On the morning of May 3rd, Geekadelphia is happy to announce that we will be heading towards N. 2nd st. yet again for Free Comic Book Day @ Brave New Worlds.
Enter to win free tickets to Brave New Worlds private screening of Iron Man the movie on Monday, May 5. All you need to do is stop in either Philadelphia or Willow Grove location on Free Comic Book Day to sign up to win.
In addition to all the guest and swag, Brave New Worlds will also be donating 10% of all sales at both stores on Free Comic Book Day to The Hero Initiative, which is a publicly-supported, non-profit corporation that financially assists comic creators in need. Since 2000, The Hero Initiative has granted over $200,000 to comic book industry veterans who have been in need of emergency medical aid and financial support.

You may be wondering what exactly is Free Comic Book Day and if you can just come to the store and take a free comic book off the shelf. May 3, 2008 marks the seventh year that participating stores across the globe will be handing out free comic books. There are actually specially-produced issues for Free Comic Book Day, so make sure you see a staff member to get your copy. See below for a partial list of the comics to be handed out this year.
