Pow! Biff! Bam! Comic Book Day is back on May 4, and One Stop Comics, 111 S. Ridgeland Ave., will be celebrating with free comics and "a wide array of comic books being published today" for all ages. 

Owner Rick Manzella said in a press release that Comic Book Day has been a "smashing success" — no pun intended, we're sure — for "spreading the word that comics are terrific reading." 

He noted that in addition to Comic Book Day, May is going to be a big month for comic books because of the release of the movie Avengers Endgame. 

Manzella said he will give away more than 5,000 comics at his store on Comic Book Day.

The shop also will feature professional and amateur artists, as well as Josh Blaylock, founder and CEO of Devil's Due Publishing. The day begins at 10 a.m. and runs till 7 p.m.
