What is Free Comic Book Day? Free Comic Book Day is a single day – the first Saturday in May each year – when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE* to anyone who comes into their stores. And the Comic Bug is doing FREE COMIC BOOK DAY bigger and better than ever before!
We’re going to have lots of fun things for comic fans of all ages: comic creator appearances, free sketches and signings, costumed heroes, and big discounts on the comics you love (or soon will love)! We will have more information as the event gets closer, so be sure to follow us on Facebook and keep checking back here for the latest information as we make it available to the public!
So set aside that Saturday to bring your whole family to this unique, yearly event done the way only the Comic Bug can do it!
