Not video games, obviously, but of note to us nerds. May 4 is free comic book day. Visit your local comic store for freebies.
For those in the area, I highly recommend a visit to Wade's comics madness in Levittown on Saturday. He always has an insane sale and fun events. Below is his email for this year for any interested folks.
