Sequential art and engaging stories that the Comics portray have the heart of people of all ages. It is not just a new fling for the teenagers, Comics have a long history and date back to further back than we realize. Comics tell us stories of all kinds and provide the utmost important sound effects in written forms like “BOOM” “ZAP” “POW” to pique the imagination of readers and make us go head-over-heels crazy about the characters and storyline. Free comic day is the day when the fantasies of all the Comic book lovers come true. The pen of a comic artist covers stories from almost all the topics, each frame is hand-drawn to give the personal touch by dedicated artists putting their sweat into the work and free comic day allows them to receive appreciation and recognition from even those who can’t afford comics.
