Happy Free Comic Book Day

Free Comic Book Day and National Bike Month happening at the same time ?
Clearly a recipe for disaster as angry cyclists combat surly skateboarders in front of tiny comic book shops. It could be worse than a Star Trek convention being scheduled across the street from a Dr Who convention.
Marvel Comics will be distributing an Avengers and Wolverine comic for free and DC will be offering a Green Lantern comic, Blackest Night #0. Oddly enough there's movie projects involving all these characters percolating and the Wolverine movie is already out.
Other offerings
  • Archie Comics: Archie Presents: The Mighty Archie Art Players
  • BOOM! Studios: Disney/Pixar’s Cars
  • Bongo Comics: 2009 Free For All
  • Dark Horse Comics: Star Wars: Clone Wars
  • IDW Publishing: Transformers Animated/G.I. Joe
  • Image Comics: Savage Dragon #148
  • Oni Press: Resurrection #0
  • Viz Media: Shonen Jump Presents: Ultimo

Individual stores may have other offerings.
It might be a good idea to lobby your favorite comic book store for a bike rack.
