Free Comic Book Day is held the first Saturday in May each year and this year local comic book stores were packed with people picking up their free comics, parading in costumes, meeting artists and enjoying other festivities.
Two stores in Fort Bend County, Bedrock City Comics in Missouri City and Uncanny Comics in Rosenberg, had long lines and plenty of other giveaways and in-store specials throughout the day. Pictured here are some scenes at both stores last Saturday.
