Spider-Man Foils Thief on Free Comic Book Day

Some people take Free Comic Book Day just a little too literally.

In an Australian comic book store yesterday, during Free Comic Book Day, one light fingered thief tried to help himself to a rather heavy comic priced at 160 Australian dollars, an X-Men Omnibus volume.

But owner of Adelaide Comic Centre, one 45 year old Michael Baulderstone dressed in a Spider-Man costume saw the crime take place and spun into action and confronted the perpertrator. One scuffle later, with the help of a few other cosplayers, including the Flash and a few Jedi knights, and the police were called.
