For those not in the know, today is Free Comic Book Day. On this day, comic book retailers nationwide provide customers with a small selection of comic books which can be obtained absolutely free of charge.
This year, Mega Man joins the fray with a free special edition of Archie's Mega Man #1. What makes it so special you ask? If it wasn't apparent enough, the issue touts brand new cover art and, according to a solicitation, some "bonus features" and a preview of The New Crusaders.
Yeah, it's a reprint of the first issue; but bear in mind this is an excellent venue for the comic to gain more exposure. That's always a plus, right? And c'mon, it's free!
You can check out the full selection of comics offered today here. Call your local comic shop ahead of time just in case! UPDATE: This is kinda neat. According to a few readers, some comic shops are giving away leftover copies of FCB comics today, May 6th. If you missed out on your free copy of Mega Man #1, you might want to look into that.
