45 titles are being given away during the the promo period, which began on July 15 and ends on Sept. 9.
Comic Book Day is normally a one-day event on the first Saturday of May. Since 2020 is not a normal year, the organizers turned the national comic book giveaway into a two-month event.
Free Comic Book Summer titles and distribution will vary by comic book shop, and shopping for Super Heroes must accommodate local COVID-19 regulations including social distancing and wearing face masks.
Special events like live sketching by comic artists or visits by costumed characters will not be held in New York City this year, because of those rules.
Use your x-ray vision to find FREE Comic Book Summer participating shops.
For those without super powers, use the store locator to find a participating shop.
Luckily for us in New York City, more than a dozen comic book shops are participating, including four confirmed participants in Midtown, plus more in other parts of town, along with Yonkers and Northern New Jersey.
Most comic book shops are independently-owned, so participation and offers will vary. So this is also a good opportunity to support your small local businesses. Comic book shops usually carry additional merchandise, such as comic-related games, logo t-shirts, even old-fashioned CDs.
Also, most have limits on the number of free comic books one person or family can receive. Don’t be greedy.
