The first Saturday in may is a holiday for comic book collectors as it’s Free Comic Book Day.
A total of 50 books from nearly that many publishers have been created specifically for the day — and they can only initially be had by making a visit to a participating shop.
“We have an incredible selection of Silver comics for fans for Free Comic Book Day this year, and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our 15th anniversary of the event than with such a diverse range of titles for readers of all ages,” said FCBD Marketing Director Dan Manser. “Free Comic Book Day is such an important day for celebrating fans and their local comic shops, as well as introducing new readers to comics. Our Silver-level supporters have really helped make this year special with such an interesting selection of titles.”
A dozen of the books are from Gold-level sponsors of the event, and you can see a gallery and list of all 50 books … if you keep reading.
You won’t see any sports card companies selling cardboard during Super Bowl 50, but there will be plenty of collectors watching Super Bowl commercials and Buzz will share some favorites here as they arrive during the game.

Super Bowl Commercial: Skittles Buzz’s Take: Marshawn Lynch might have something to say about this one …
Super Bowl Commercial: Chunky Soup Buzz’s Take: A classy football-related commercial that would make Donovan McNabb’s mom proud.
Super Bowl Commercial:X-Men Apocalypse Buzz’s Take: Buzz hadn’t seen anything for this one, so it was pretty striking. (Meanwhile, 41 million of you have seen the previous trailer since December on just one YouTube account … Buzz was apparently in Star Wars mode back then.)
Super Bowl Commercial: Bud Light Buzz’s Take: In what’s likely to be a series of commercials, Seth Rogen and Amy Schumer spoof politics. (For the record, neither one has a certified auto … just saying.)
Super Bowl Commercial: Doritos Buzz’s Take: The leader for the creepiest and funniest commercial in the game so far …
