  • Celebrate Cinco de Mayo at Korka Comics

On Saturday, comic book shops across the country will hand out free comic books, including right here in Corpus Christi.

Since 2002, the first Saturday of May has been dubbed Free Comic Book Day. The yellow pages (physical and digital) may list your shop under comics or books.

In honor of these events, Chattooine, a local not-for-profit costuming and pop culture club, is going to local comic stores dressed in their costumes to entertain customers. There's a variety of books to check out, from Marvel and DC to comics based on video games like Overwatch, and even some manga samplers.

Comic book selections will vary by library. "We've got a dump truck from Republic Services so just all kinds of fun stuff for people to look at, take pictures with and crawl around on", Bowker added.

The store will also host comic artist Tom Fleming from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m.

"We will have our button maker out and kids will be able to make their own buttons out of old comics as well as their own designs", Farmer said.

With "Avengers: Infinity War" crushing every box office record in existence, it's safe to bet that almost everyone is at least aware of the juggernaut that is Marvel comics.

Here's a rundown of all 50 Free Comic Book Day titles that will be available on May 5.

The day has been held every year since, and with one exception has always been the first Saturday in May. Rowles said the annual event is a good way for people to 'dip their toes into the whole comic book world, ' no matter their age.

Noel Corless, who has owned That Comic Shop since 2007, said: "I usually get queues outside the door before opening at 10am".

Tim Judge has been reading comics since the 1980s, and about two years ago, he got his daughter, Maev, and his wife, Jen Judge, hooked.
