Tomorrow is Free Comic Book Day – Saturday, May 1
Be sure to visit your local comic book shop tomorrow, Saturday, May 1 – it’s Free Comic Book Day! What is “Free Comic Book Day” you ask? Free Comic Book Day is an annual event where participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their stores. How cool is that!
So stop by your local comic shop on Saturday, pick up something you’ve never read before FOR FREE, and expand your mind. Click here for a complete list of all the free comics that are being offered in conjunction with Free Comic Book Day.
If you have children/nephews/nieces, be sure to bring them too. Many of the comics are specifically geared towards getting children interested in comics (see the list below for kid-friendly comics being given away free on Saturday). Most comic shops really make an effort to make it a family-friendly event. The picture at the right is of my step-son back in 2005 at the Cosmic Cat Free Comic Book Day. Some of the shops in my hometown this year will feature face painting for kids, comic/Star Wars character appearances, giveaways, writer/artist signings, and more!
Some titles available for FREE this Saturday include:
- Iron Man/Thor
- War of the Superman #0
- Archie’s Summer Splash #1 – KID FRIENDLY!

- G.I. Joe #155 1/2
