Free Comic Book Day returns to the Puyallup Public Library on May 4, 2013! As the name implies, this is a day when comic book stores and libraries around the world give away comics to people of all ages. At the Puyallup Public Library, we’ll be handing out comic books at the front of the library, from 10 am until 3 pm (as supplies last). Treat your inner comic book guy to superheroes, including The Avengers or Superman, classic comics such as The Walking Dead, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or Sonic the Hedgehog, or try a new series like Adventure Time or Steam Engines of Oz, just to name a few of the titles we’ll have available.
Because this year’s Free Comic Book Day falls on May 4th, we’ll also be celebrating Star Wars Day: May the 4th Be With You! Astromech builder Cole Horton and his R2 unit, R2-M5, a droid in the Royal Naboo Security Force, will be at the library from 10 am – 3 pm. Mr. Horton will lead a presentation from 11 am – 12 pm on building astromechs; if you’ve ever dreamed of building your own R2 unit, make sure to attend this free event! Take a picture with R2-M5 and ask questions about what it takes to build a droid. Throughout the day, we’ll also have a variety of Star Wars crafts for all ages, including Star Wars origami and paper bag puppets.
This event is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Puyallup Public Library and Fantasium Comics (1500 South 336th Street, Suite 12A, Federal Way, WA 98003).
