Free Comic Book Day!

Saturday is Free Comic Book Day, which means that you can go into any participating comic shop and choose from a selection of comics that you'll get to take home for free. Chicago Comics, at 3244 N. Clark St., is getting in the game not only by offering free comics from 11am-9pm, but also offering 20% off anything in the store for anyone who comes in dressed as a superhero. And they don't mean just a Superman logo T-shirt either - they mean the whole she-bang. I know I've got two costumes from Halloweens past hanging in my closet (Clark Kent becoming Superman and The Cheerleader from Heroes)...who will you be?
