All right... Grampa promises to shut up.
(But he knows he's right.)
Fortunately, there are still pockets of sanity at Marvel. This promotion gives old and new readers a chance to find their new Favorite Book at zero risk.
If you missed out on this promotion, fret not: Free Comic Book Day is (a) a real thing and (b) happening on May 4. This is an annual industry-wide holiday during which most comic book stores will be stocked with piles of free comics donated by every major publisher.
Many stores make a big celebration out of it, supplementing the industry freebies with comps of their own. There is also a nonzero chance that you can get your picture taken with someone in Imperial Stormtrooper armor.
