This Saturday, Free Comic Book Day returns to a Local Comic Book Shop near you. Sure, it’s Cinco de Mayo, Derby Day and Revenge of The Fifth all on the same day so you had best get out and do something that day!
Celebrating its 17th year, Free Comic Book Day is the comic book specialty market’s annual event where participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic book absolutely free to anyone who comes into their comic shops. The event is held the first Saturday in May and is the perfect opportunity to introduce friends and family to the many worlds of wonder available at local comic shops. From superheroes to slide-of-life to action/adventure and beyond, Free Comic Book Day has a comic book for everyone!
We were given an advance copy of some of the Free Comic Book Day titles so here is a preview. If this is your first FCBD, follow these simple rules to have the best time!
Follow the store rules!
If the store is only giving one comic per customer, or one per publishing line or whatever they say, don’t be greedy! Free Comic Book Day is for the kids, so make sure you leave some for that kid to discover the wonderful world of comics.
