Free Comic Book Day 2014: Diamond Announces SILVER SPONSORS!

I love the thrill of anticipation. With Free Comic Book Day happening in May, and all these great announcements coming through now, I’m busily making lists and marking off the routes I’ll take to my favorite local comic book stores while giggling with glee. It’s like looking forward to Christmas (almost). Anyway, read on for news from Diamond about their Silver Sponsors:
