Geek Weekend – Free Comic Book Day and May The Fourth

lightsaber-battleThis weekend is going to be a very big couple of days for geeks all over.

Free Comic Book Day

Tomorrow begins the celebrations with Free Comic Book Day.  Every year, on the first Saturday in May, comic book shops around the globe give away comic books.  I’ve written before about our previous free comic book day trips.  I hope to go with the boys again this year.  I’m not sure if our local comic book store will have people dressed in costume like they’ve had last year, but it’s always fun to see what comic books interest the boys.

May The Fourth

Sunday is May the 4th.  Star Wars fans, noticing the similarity between the day’s name and the Star Wars quote "May the Force be with you" have adopted this day as "Star Wars Day."  We already have our foam lightsabers ready to go.  (We might take them with us to Free Comic Book Day as well.)  Unfortunately, the weather doesn’t look like it will hold out to allow us to conduct some lightsaber battles outside.  We might need a raincheck for that.

Will you be attending Free Comic Book Day?  How will you celebrate May the Fourth?
