Everyday Business | Kapow! Free comics a knockout offer

Time to pull our Power Ranger suits out of mothballs and get ready for what’s become a favorite holiday — not Easter, not Mother’s Day, but the annual Free Comic Book Day on May 3.

Oh yeah. No other “national appreciation day” honors someone like Rocket, a mean and grumpy raccoon who’s a Guardian of the Galaxy, or Clumsy Smurf or, of course, heroes (?) like Archie, SpongeBob and Batman.

Wenatchee’s Galaxy Comics, the hub of the comic-book universe in North Central Washington, will celebrate the day by offering free copies of favorite comics (more than 30 titles) from noon to 5 p.m. May 3. Owned by comic master Dean Ball, Galaxy is located at 1720 Fifth St., Suite D. Get him talking about Superman for a richer comic book experience.

By the way, Galaxy is one of 2,000 comic book stores around the world that’ll participate in Free Comic Book Day, when they’ll give out about 4.6 million freebies. Part of this effort is to promote upcoming super-hero movies: Amazing Spider-Man 2 (May 2), X-Men: Days of Future Past (May 23) and Guardians of the Galaxy (Aug. 1).

As for our Power Ranger suits ... we’ve still got time to zap a few pounds off the spare tires rolling over our Power belts. Maybe we should dress as Smurfs instead?
