Celebrate and discover the amazing world of comic books on Free Comic Book Day! Taking place annually on the first Saturday in May, Free Comic Book Day is a single day when participating comic book specialty shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their shops!
Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) is the biggest event in the comic book industry—a single day when participating comic book speciality shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their shops!
Promoted by the North American comic book industry, the aim is to help bring new readers into independent comic book stores.
It began in 2001 by Joe Field, a California-based comics retailer, event promoter and partner in WonderCon. Though originally a North American event, it has spread to countries in Asia, Europe, and Australia.
Major publishers such as DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Dark Horse Comics, IDW Publishing, BOOM! Studios, Dynamite Entertainment, and Image Comics, along with a slew of independent publishers, put out free comics for fans to enjoy at the more than 2,300 local comic shops that participate in Free Comic Book Day.Find out more
