Star Wars comics have been in circulation since the late '70s, and you're not truly celebrating May the Fourth if you don't hit up a comic book store. On May Fourth, Korka Comics will open early (at 9 a.m.) to celebrate all things Star Wars. If you show up in your best cosplay you’ll get free admission and a free gift, so don’t be bashful. In addition to all the Star Wars happenings, Korka is also celebrating National Comic Book Day in style. All comic sets will be "buy one get one free."
