Free Comic Book Day 

This Saturday comic shops in all six corners of the multiverse celebrate Free Comic Book Day, an annual event in which publishers craft extra-special comics intended to be given away to any mutant, human or Kryptonian that flies through the door. While availability varies, this year's highlights include Marvel's Secret Wars zero issue and an All-New, All-Different Avengers issue, DC's Divergence, as well as new funny books featuring Sonic the Hedgehog, SpongeBob SquarePants and Doctor Who. Area shops hosting special events in addition to the freebies include AM Trading (4005 Utah Street; www.amtrading.co), which promises live music, cosplayers and a bounce castle from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The Wizard's Wagon (6327 Delmar Boulevard, University City; www.thewizardswagon.com) gets into the action at 10 a.m. with bands, cosplayers the Gateway Superfriends and a visit from the 501st Legion of Star Wars stormtroopers. Admission is free, get there early for the best selection.
