13 Places to Celebrate Free Comic Book Day in Metro Phoenix

It's a great time of year to be a geek, particularly a fan of comic books. Phoenix Comicon, of course, is just around the corner. And superhero movies will be in abundance this summer, including the recently released Captain America: The Winter Soldier and such soon-to-arrive flicks as Amazing Spider-Man 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Guardians of the Galaxy.

Oh, and Free Comic Book Day is less than 24 hours away.
