This year May the Fourth, a day to revel in all things Star Wars, coincides with Free Comic Book Day, an annual celebration of comic books!
And on this May the Fourth, we’re particularly remembering Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew who died on April 30, 2019. He made Chewbacca one of the best-loved Star Wars characters.
Will you be headed to your local comic shop for Free Comic Book Day? We certainly will! If you don’t get a chance to get there – you can always see what we have in our collections. Star Wars comics? Yep. Free Comic Book Day comics? Check. And we’ll be adding 2019 Free Comic Book Day issues to the mix as well.
If you can’t make it to see the Library of Congress comic collection in person, you might see what your local library has for you – chances are they have some comics.
I thought I might also take a moment to mention that Headlines & Heroes is turning one! A full year of mysteries, crime, holidays, newspapers, and of course, comics! We hope you’ve enjoyed our posts this past year, and we have some great posts planned for this upcoming year!
We welcome suggestions for future posts – if you’ve got a burning curiosity for some news or comics, share it with us!
