It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s the annual Free Comic Book Day on May 7, when comic book shops nationwide give away FREE comic books, and many host special events like live sketching by comic artists or visits by costumed characters.
Use your x-ray vision to find FREE Comic Book Day participating shops or, for the those without super powers, use the store locator to find a participating shop. However, before you swoop in for the freebie, be sure to check store hours, as well as any special conditions or restrictions.
Most shops are independently-owned, so participation and offers will vary.
Most have limits on the number of free comic books one person or family can receive.
This year marks the 15th year of the colorful giveaway, which is always the first Saturday in May.
