Los Angeles Free Comic Book Day Events!

If you're not in the L.A. area on May 7, I'm sorry.  So many rad signings are happening on Free Comic Book Day; I'm not trying to make you jealous.  Really.  You can go here to find participating stores in your area.

If you are in Los Angeles for FCBD, here's a list of happenings around town.  It is by no means all-inclusive.  The day of free awesomeness is less than 24 hours away, but keep in mind that schedules can change.  If you are really excited about seeing one of these creators and you're fighting traffic or going several miles to do so, it doesn't hurt to check in with the store to make sure the schedule's still set.  Also, if you have questions about any of the times, etc., check with the store instead of me.  I just compiled the information they put out there.
