Maybe we need to explain further. Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) is — you guessed it — a day where local comic book stores give away free comic books. This year is the biggest FCBD to date, as it will feature 60 free comics available to all comic fans. Anyone that visits one of the 2,000 participating shops will receive at least one of the designated comics for free. The FCBD Committee picked a list of "Gold" and "Silver" sponsors whose titles are great for both adults and kids. Featured comic books include Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Transformers," "Archie," DC's "The New 52: Futures End," and more. Each comic book shop will include its own special events like store-wide sales, costume contests, and raffles. Call your neighborhood store to see what its offering for the day.
Comic Book Day is Saturday, May 3, during normal store hours. For more information, and to check out local participating stores and featured free comics, go to Freecomicbookday.com.
