Free Comic Book Day is over this year but we’ll be sure to post when the next one is as well as any other great offers we find.

Typically Free Comic Book Day is celebrated the first Saturday of May, but this year, in honor of its 20th anniversary, it will be celebrated in mid-August.

Note that there is a limit of one comic book per person. In addition to passing out free comics, many comic book shops celebrate the day with contests, creator signings, and photo opportunities with costumed characters, and more!

    We were able to participate through our library and we got so many fun titles. We also got some graphic novels (book style) stickers, tattoos, and a last kids on earth inflatable bat for free! So much fun!

    We have been participating in this event for years now. Our local comic book store allows you to pick five comics for free and five more if you make a purchase. The free comics are created for the event. We love going because they always have a sale. Today, all comics were 50% off!
