  1. Saturday, May 4th, 2013 marked an ultimate day for nerds. Free comic book day takes place on the first Saturday in May every year. Comic shops around the country hold special events and companies produce limited/special edition FREE comics for the masses. This year, the first Saturday in May fell on the 4th, which happened to be an unofficial, but universally recognized Star Wars day for fans. (Named as such because May the 4th sounds like May the force…be with you.) Here are some reactions to the geek fest!

  2. Comic Quest Evansville owner Monti poses with a cosplayer.
  3. The weather wasn't pretty, but Evansvillians lined up an hour before the doors opened to make sure they get all the free issues they want. Comic Quest featured several Star Wars characters in honor of Star Wars Day. Here, a Stormtrooper poses with some sort of ninja child.
  4. Twitter was filled, on Saturday, with pics of all the different books collectors gathered throughout the day FOR FREE!
  5. Comic Quest, along with artists, free comics, and sales, had several raffles and drawings. This particular drawing was for a signed issue of Superior Spider-man signed by Spider-man creator Stan Lee.
  6. Attendees got to meet several published artists including Jason Craig of Evil Ernie and Freddy VS. Jason VS. Ash.

  8. Owner of the local Comics Unlimited also offered free comics and discounts on other comics.
  9. Comic fans east of Evansville could check out their local comic shop in Owensboro to pick up their free books.
  10. People weren't the only cosplayers yesterday. This dog is clearly a fan of Chewbacca, and is excited about Star Wars Day.
  11. One of the most sought after free comics of the day was a Walk Dead one-shot featuring a new story about Tyreese. Walking Dead fans will do anything to get Walking Dead material with new story in it.
  12. On top of everything, Iron Man 3 opened this weekend in the U.S. and made $175 in it's first three days.
