New to this annual event?
Free Comic Book Day is designed to encourage those interested to head to their local comic shop. Whether you’re an avid comic book reader or have kids that are curious about comics, you’ll want to check out this event and score a free comic book while you’re at it!
Local comic stores provide a unique experience for the whole family, and you can find more than just comics there, including games, toys, collectibles, trading cards, and so much more.
Hip readers have really enjoyed this event in the past…
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!
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!
The selection of free comics available will include new titles from a variety of publishers for all ages, and with over 45 free titles on the list, you’re sure to find something for every member of your family. This year’s freebies include Archie, Dr. Who, and Captain Underpants, just to name a few!
