Posted by Jeff Penner Saturday, May 3, 2014
Saturday, May 3rd is Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) at your local comic shops! FCBD is the comic book specialty market’s annual event where participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their shops. The event is held the first Saturday in May and is the perfect opportunity to introduce friends and family to the many worlds of wonder available at local comic book shops. From superheroes to slice-of-life to action/adventure and beyond, FCBD has a comic book for everyone!

Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy, Atomic Robo

FCBD will be celebrated at participating comic book specialty shops across the U.S., Canada, and worldwide! 2014 marks the biggest event yet, with 60 free comics available for new and devoted comics fans to discover while they also explore what other treasures their local comic shop has to offer.

On Saturday May 3rd, anyone who visits a participating comic shop will receive at least one or more of the designated FCBD comics for free. The Free Comic Book Day Committee picked a listing of Gold and Silver sponsors whose comic books include titles that are great for kids and adults. This year’s roster contains 60 free comics such as Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, DC’s The New 52: Futures End, Archie, Spongebob, Teen Titans Go!, The Simpsons, Hello Kitty, Transformers, Sonic, and many more for fans to discover! Complete descriptions of all 60 FCBD titles, along with four-to-six page previews, can be found online at www.freecomicbookday.com/comics.

Comic shops will also host community events such as costume contests, drawings by guest artists, creator signings, raffles, door prizes, photos with costumed characters, and other community-building activities throughout the day. Every comic shop celebrates FCBD in its own unique way, and fans have an opportunity to see their local comic shop’s personality and thriving community of pop-culture enthusiasts on display.

“Free Comic Book Day gives new and devoted comic book, entertainment, and pop-culture fans the opportunity to get great titles for free, while participating in fun and interactive comic shop events,” said FCBD Spokesperson Jason Blanchard. “Comic shops plan their FCBD activities months in advance to give their community the best FCBD experience in order to bring together like-minded fans who love the same stories, TV shows, and movies, while being able to discover new stories that will entertain and enrich their lives.”
