It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s FREE Comic Book Day! And, this year, they’re celebrating more than 20 years of the annual giveaway.
Free Comic Book Day is the biggest event in the comic book industry — a single day when participating comic book specialty shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE to anyone who comes into their shop.
The annual event takes place on the first Saturday in May, so, for 2023, that means all the colorful fun is on May 6.
It’s the perfect opportunity for young ones to ignite a love for comic books or for true collectors to celebrate their lifelong passion and add to their growing collection.

I have posted this article multiple times since it began. Since this promotion doesn’t end until the 7th of September, I feel it is still relevant. Each comic book store was to release their free comics at their own discretion in the timeframe given. I’m sorry if you missed the prior publishings of this post, but feel free to contact the shops to see if they have exhausted their free comics. Thanks!
