Scenes from Free Comic Book Day 2014 in St. Louis

True believers scavenged comic book shops all over the metro region on Free Comic Book Day on May 3, 2014. Held the first Saturday each May, the growing holiday is sacred to casual comic book readers and longtime devotees alike, as they can choose from up to 60 free titles while enjoying sales, giveaways and entertainment. We swung by the festivities at Fantasy Shop in South County, Star Clipper in University City and All American Collectibles/Mo's Comics in South City.
