I believe that different comic stores got different free comics. I got there early enough to see the whole pick and there were no steampunk comics in the mix. We are a fairly small market and often get less than larger population areas when this sort of thing is done.

I concur, I also got the Serenity comic and I found the cover art as the best part as well.

I picked up the new steampunk comic "The Infernal Devices; Clockwork Angel." However, there were no devices in this issue. However it was a full comic and not a preview. I may browse it at the store when the next issue comes out to see if it gets better.

I also picked up the free Dinosaurs verus Aliens, based on the book. It was only a preview, but it had some potental.

I didn't get any of the Avengers, but I'm glad to know the stories were good.

All in all, I thought it was fun to see what they were going to pitch this summer.

I made it over to my local comic book store on Saturday morning and got the Serenity comic. I read it and passed it to some friends that were out of town Saturday. Sorry, but the cover art was the best part in my opinion. The story was too short and completely predictable. The comic art was fairly crude. For free, I shouldn't complain but still.

I was allowed to pick up 5 and got 3 Serenity/Star Wars comics and two different Avengers comics. (The shop owner said he wound up with extra Avengers that came from another shop last year.) The artwork and stories in the Avengers comic books were pretty good. My friends that I gave them to were quite pleased with me.

I hope you enjoy. Maybe over the weekend we can compare notes...

A Serenity / Star Wars comic has definitely been advertised. I need to find out if our little store is participating - or even open these days.

Just a quick reminder that this Saturday is free comic book day - so, you if you have a participating store in your area and you're interested - yeah

I've heard that there's a new steampunk comic coming out and it will be one of the freebies...
