Free Comic Book Day is a pretty big event held by comic book stores around the world and it is designed to generate interest in and celebrate the fine medium that is comics!
Kids and even adults that regularly would not visit their local comics shop have a chance to be introduced and re-introduced to the industry.
But what happens for those small towns that don't happen to have a comic book shop? They usually miss out.
One of eXpertComics.com's favorite customers, Sheldon Gavin, happens to live in one of these small towns, a small mining community called Labrador City in Newfoundland, with two neighboring towns, Wabush and Fremont, Quebec.
Sheldon gets his weekly dose of comic titles delivered directly to his door from us, but when it comes to Free Comic Book Day, comic fans in the area, and especially the kids...sadly just don't get to experience the fun.
