Isn’t Free Comic Book Day about free comics? And getting the comics to the kids? Get them hooked so they buy more comics?

Then why, oh why, were the two shops I visited on Saturday May 5th only giving away one free comic then charging for any others you picked up?

Granted the one shop was asking you to donate a buck to the comic book legal defense fund, which “Exists to fight censorship and defend the first amendment rights of comic book professionals throughout the United States.” So that was a good thing to do.

But the other shop, Golden Eagle Comics in Reading, PA was out right charging for them! I think if a book has the price of FREE written right on the cover you should not have to pay for it at all. Not even $.50 a book. Wonder what the folks who run the whole Free Comic Book Day gig would think about the profiting off of their free books? 

I agree that they may need to limit the books if they have a lot of traffic, but to charge for them that is just wrong!
