Free Comic Book Day is TOMORROW!
Free Comic Book Day is tomorrow, Saturday May 4th, 2019!!!
Every year, on the first Saturday in May, comic shops purchase comics by the thousands to give away for free. It’s like nerd Christmas!
This year’s Free Comic Book Day includes fifty-one different comics, featuring A-list properties like the Justice League, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Stranger Things, Deadly Class, and Catwoman, as well as lesser known characters like The Avengers (I guess they have a movie out or something?). Check here for a full list of FCBD titles.
Comic shops often put on huge events for FCBD, with cosplayers, comic industry professionals on hand to sign and sketch, food trucks, and giveaways. For example, my Local Comic Shop (shout out to Nuclear Comics in Laguna Hills, CA) is giving away two free passes to San Diego Comic Con! Another local shop (Phat Collectibles in La Habra, CA) is hosting Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld. Check out the laundry list of May 4th events on Convention Scene to see just some of the FCBD appearances by comic creators around the country!
Let’s not forget about the sales either! Many shops use this opportunity to offer Black Friday level discounts to the crowds that show up for FCBD. It’s a great opportunity to support local small businesses, load up on awesome comics, and support the comic industry.
