     Saturday, May 4 is National Free Comic Book Day, the first Saturday in May each year – when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away special edition comic books absolutely free. 

     The Man of Steel is set to headline Free Comic Book Day as DC Comics is offering an exclusive free special edition of SUPERMAN: LAST SON OF KRYPTON #1, which will include a sneak peek of SUPERMAN UNCHAINED, the new, eagerly awaited series, created by comic legends Scott Snyder and Jim Lee.  SUPERMAN UNCHAINED will fly into stores June 14, the same week as the highly anticipated new film, Man of Steel.

     Superman Unchained series co-creators and pop culture icons, Jim Lee (co-publisher of DC Comics) and Scott Snyder, will be in NYC and available on May 3.  See below for links to additional information, and let me know if you’d be interested in booking them to chat about Superman Unchained and the resurgence in comic book popularity leading into Free Comic Book Day.
