What books did you pick up on Free Comic Book Day?

Here are the 5 comic books I picked up at my local Newbury Comics store. They're a great source for everything that's culturally relevant in the world today ;)

There were a lot of Dads present with their kids, but they're not fooling anyone... You can't bring your kids to Free Comic Book Day and pretend those books aren't for Dad! :)

Free Comic Book Day 2015 Left to right: Doctor Who, Avengers Magazine, Avengers, Divergence, Super Mutant Magic Academy. Free Comic Book Day 2015 trending on Twitter This year's selection was very Superhero oriented - especially the Avengers with the new movie. At past Free Comic Book Day events I've picked up something from Archie Comics. Those guys are getting downright edgy with those Riverdale kids! Just check out Afterlife With Archie or Archie VS Predator. It's always nice to be able to get something offbeat at this event.

Free Comic Book Day is a great way to get kids interested in comic books. As a kid, I loved Sad Sack and Casper among others. I think books should be an important part of everyone's life, but comics are a valuable medium for getting kids interested in written stories.
