Free Comic Book Day Saturday: 'Avengers' Comic Among the Goodies

It's that time of year again: Free Comic Book Day, the annual event in which comic book fans -- and potential new ones -- can score a free bag of comics swag at comic book shops all across the country.

Saturday's event marks the 10th anniversary of Free Comic Day, and among the comic offerings this year is a particularly timely issue: "The Avengers, Age of Ultron Point One," which fans can snap up at their local comics shop on the way to see an opening weekend showing of "The Avengers" movie.

The Free Comic Book Day website has a store locator to find out which comic shops are participating.
