TAMPA (WFLA/CNN) - If you're a fan of Batman, Spiderman, the X-men, or the Incredible Hulk get ready to be happy because Saturday is free comic book day which comes around just once a year on the first Saturday in May.
It's an observance that works for both children and adults. Kids perhaps just now discovering the joys of the likes of Marvel and DC comics.
Adults channeling their inner-child and enjoying some nostalgic reminiscing at the local comic book store.
As comic book film franchises like the Avengers rake it in at the box office, retailers will use Saturday to lure folks back into comic book shops.
Not every shop owner is guaranteed to participate in free comic book day though - so call ahead to see if your local store is taking part.
Fans new and old are welcome to Coliseum of Comics New Tampa for fun and free comics at May 4 from 10-7 at 19402 Bruce B. Downs Boulevard
