St Albans store Chaos City Comics is once again taking part in the worldwide Free Comic Book Day.

From 10am on Saturday, May 6, fans will be able to pick up volumes, old and new, free of charge.

Chaos City Comics manager, Luke Ridge, said: “There will be 40 to 50 titles completely free for people to pick up.

“It is one of our busiest days and we have a queue that leads out of the square, on to the street.”

The event, he says, is intended as a thank you to fans.
